Ladies and gentleman. Thank you to all who participated, but the voting is now closed.

.

The results have been totalled up (to the best of my ability, anyways) and I can now announce that Prince's best outtake according to this poll is...

.

All My Dreams

.

"All My Dreams is an unreleased track recorded on 28 April 1985 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (four days after Holly Rock, the same day as Kiss).

It was included as the ninth and final track on a 1 May 1985 configuration of Parade, but was removed before the album's release. The track was later included as the nineteenth and final track on a 3 June 1986 configuration of the album Dream Factory, and kept as the eighteenth and final track on the 18 July 1986 configuration.

.

When Prince decided not to proceed with the album after disbanding the Revolution, and concentrated instead on Camille and Crystal Ball (both of which were also aborted), he decided not to include this song.

.

The track was mentioned as a possible track for the 1998/1999 album of Revolution-era tracks, Roadhouse Garden, but this remains unreleased. Artwork has been posted online for an NPG Music Club album titled All My Dreams, which likely includes this track, but nothing else is known about this album.

.

A portion of a distorted spoken section of this song was later reused in Acknowledge Me."
.
Basic tracking recorded 28th April 1985 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA
Additional Orchestra recording by Clare Fischer shortly after.
.
Information taken from princevault.com (http://www.princevault.com/index.php?title=All_My_Dreams)
.
And finally here the top 10:
#01 All My Dreams (1985) [Score 89.583]

#02 We Can Funk #2 (1986) [Score 89.565]

#03 Empty Room (1985) [Score 88.913]

#04 Old Friends 4 Sale (Original Version) (1985) [Score 88.478]

#05 Extraloveable (1982) [Score 87.500]

#06 Rebirth Of The Flesh (1986) [Score 85.417]

#07 Days Of Wild (1994) [Score 84.762]

#08 Mutiny (Prince Vocals) (1984) [Score 84.375]

#09 Come (1993) [Score 83.947]

#10 The Beautiful Ones (unedited) (1983) [Score 82.647]
.

well, i know im annoying right now, but what would be the result is you apply the median instead of the average? I think it will shake it up a bit, and it gives the more relayable result wink

Thanks!

that's what i expected, a shake-up after the top 3 (4 actually) with very different entries.
Still i thought 'large room' would end up higher...
