Just saying, Jungle Love (and The Bird) are Jesse's songs

http://www.princevault.co...ungle_Love

Come now, we've heard what Jesse wrote for Jungle Love and it's a groove, not a song. He should be co-credited with composing alright but a Jesse Johnson solo composition it is not.

My two cents:


Sex Shooter - 8
Jungle Love - 9
Manic Monday - 8
Noon Rendezvous - 9
Make-Up - 5
100 MPH - 7
You're My Love - 5
Holly Rock - 8
Baby, You're a Trip - 10
The Glamorous Life - 10
Gigolos Get Lonely Too - 10
Love... Thy Will Be Done - 8
Dear Michelangelo - 9
Wouldn't You Love to Love Me? - 5
Nothing Compares 2 U - 9

Nothing Compares 2 U Cinematic Mix - 10


I think your spreadsheet should be amended to include the Target bonus track. That one may be the most divise because of the argument over its authenticity.

The Glamorous Life - 8 Just as good as Sheila, and without the annoying drum histrionics.

eek eek eek eek eek

The "annoying" percussion is what makes the song!


When I first read Emma's comment about the drums I was going to similarly reply that the percussion is great...

But upon listening to them both back-to-back, I too perfer Prince's version without the percussion. It's less busy. The music has room to breath.

In fact, I get the impression that Prince had Sheila add the percussion not because the song needed it, but simply to help her make the song her own. And maybe to give her cred as an actual musician who makes a real contribution to the music (not another pretty face like Apolonia and Vanity).

I love Sheila and I generally love her percussion, but this specific song is better off without it. A lone drum solo in the middle would have been fine, but the constantly rattling of percussion on top of the melody was too much.

Also, I like in Prince's version that after the line "if-you-have-to-ask-it-costs-too-much lingerie" his backing vocal repeats "lingerie". It's a small touch, but it's nice. It's in the Sheila version as well, but it's burried so deep in the mix you can barely hear it.

Holly Rock is the weak link in this compilation. I have never liked Sheila's version or Prince's. I would have took that off and replaced it with Eternity which he gave 2 Sheena - beautiful song.

The stats suggest it's the most divisive song here. I think it's probably the most exciting song on all of the album, personally!

Sex Shooter: 8.5 -- I like it quite a bit more than I remember liking the A6 version

Jungle Love: 7 -- I'd rather hear the finished Time version

Manic Monday: 9.5 -- I like the dreamy quality of this (and still love the Bangles version)

Noon Rendezvous: 9 -- A surprise--the Sheila E. version never stood out to me

Make-Up: 9 -- I like new wave!

100 MPH: 8.5

You're My Love: 5.5 -- A weaker composition; hurts my ears at higher volume

Holly Rock: 6 -- Dig it musically, but have always found the lyrics annoying

Baby, You're a Trip: 9 -- Enjoying this because the JJ version is less familiar to me than some of the other songs here

The Glamorous Life: 7 -- Eh, I'd rather hear the finished Sheila E. version

Gigolos Get Lonely Too: 7 -- I'd rather hear the Time version

Love... Thy Will Be Done: 8 -- This is a good alternate to the Martika version; glad Jay-Z wanted it

Dear Michelangelo: 8.5 -- Dreamy

Wouldn't You Love to Love Me?: 9.5 -- A great version, and the audio quality is not as bad as I was prepared for

Nothing Compares 2 U: 9 -- However it's been sourced or tinkered with, it sounds great to me

Nothing Compares 2 U (Cinematic Mix): 9.5 -- Even better!



This is how I'm feeling now, anyway.

Oh, and I'm really feeling 100MPH but those are the only 2 cuts that'll be enjoying replays on my gadgets (and still well worth the $7.99 fee for the album).

I always get pleasantly surprised when your lists pop up. And this is no exception to the rule. Those top five are also my top five. And I never thought both Baby You're a Trip and Gigolos Get Lonely Too would get the praise they deserve. Prince transcends them both in execution.
