I thought it might be interesting to capture initial fan impressions of the songs on Originals, so I thought I'd start a poll in which we rate each song out of 10. I'll make a running average available via this Google sheet.

And go!


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

Jungle Love (time's version, 9) 9

Manic Monday (Bangles 7) 8

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.

it's close to his version, but i always thought it was cut from the cloth of "cool". Still a great tune though.

i just got my copy, it's still all growing on me, some of them I really, really love and just have my mind boggled all over again at the sheer productivity of this man. It really makes me think of how Prince said he didn't give WB the best stuff from the PR era, when you hear these kinds of tracks, it rings true.
