Worst Prince Song EVER written??

For Me, I'm gonna say "Donald Trump (Black Version)" on The Time's 1990 "Pandemonium" Album. It was UNBEARABLE 2 listen 2 back then, and I MOST CERTAINLY skip it NOW!!!

Never heard Donald Asshole trump. I'll put that on a to do list if it's locatable.

SWEET BABY is totally a highlight from an album full of them. Guess different strokes....


But Cheesus Cripes, PURPLE AND GOLD had me thinking he'd pulled one over on us, or had gone insane

I don't know, he rarely wrote songs that stood out as bad, usually his worst were just forgettable. Even with Purple and Gold I could see what he was going for, not what anyone wanted from him but he didn't necessarily do a bad job at it. Hot Summer stands out for me as something that should never have been released.

'Purple and Gold' is the only song in Prince's career I'd put in that category. Even more throwaway songs such as 'Jughead' and 'Boy Trouble' were intended as party tracks and 'Jughead' at least, sounded contemporary when it was released.

But 'Purple and Gold' I find unlistenable and is the sole Prince song I have that response to. I also find 'Hot Summer' somewhat odd and lackluster, though playable. But those are two rare exceptions.

All The Midnights In The World is one of those I can't listen from beginning to end...and thank God it's only 2.20 min long!

(There'll Never B) Another Like Me is another contender...utterly uninspired and uninspiring imo.

I actually felt sorry for him when Purple and Gold was played on National TV. I knew there was going to be major negative reviews. I also knew it would be hated by most fans.

I respect opinions and fully understand that you might not like Sweet Baby, but are you seriously saying that it's the absolute worst song that Prince wrote? You really can't come up with even 1 track which isn't as good as Sweet Baby? Wedding Feast? Purple & Gold? Jughead?

what?

My Name Is Prince, I LOOOVE this track, great video, brilliant with Prince dancing in that water... nice outfit chainhat, symbol gloves... excellent, I have so many memories I was in spain and saw the video on a restaurant (via MTV), I was in awe, bought the tape AND the CD on this holiday, playing the tape in my Sony walkman (long before cd-walkman and before Mp3 of course).


I have no idea why the song is so hated by many, I really enjoy the bragging lyrics, brilliant and self ironic, I like that Prince loved himself so much, and the smaller kick to MJ (No kings), just excellent,


the intro to the song with I Wanna Be You Lover/ Controversy/ Partyup, wow great, I love the bassline as well.


To the haters - lets' agree to disagree on this, what an amazing track and wonderful music video!


cool cool cool

I can see where you're going but let me tell you how you're wrong...on both counts. BE MY MIRROR is of a collection of songs really, a suite, even for a soundtrack. LET'S HAVE A BABY? I'm assuming you mention this because of the, shall we say, sickly subject matter? It can't be the music. Go listen to it again and marvel at Prince's preternatural vocal stylings. I think you'll find it's far from his worst...
