I’d love to get 3 as we got with Purple Rain Deluxe. I suppose the live single of “1999” is single number 1, which I adore. I’d like a vault track for the next single, too.

Yes release a single.
And let it be:
VAGINA!!
Plus get some remixes out there:
The Vagina Experience
Not expecting radio play or a hit single but the title should get some attention.

Yes, they should. And ideally they would be promoted heavily, get substantial radio play, and tens of millions of YT views in a few weeks. I can dream, can’t I. biggrin

Purple music would be a good choice, but it would be top if Do yourself a favor was released. Also Pepe Willie would get points presumably razz

the alternate (demo) version of "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" would make a fine single music I'd love for that song to finally become the hit song that it deserved to be back in 82/83!

How about a "classic" single release with an A-side of the alternate and the album version on the B-side?

The Vagina Experience? Sounds delicious but would probably end up being anticlimactic. Get it, Anti-CLIMACTIC? Anyone?

Ok, back to work for me.

Strive

They already did. The live version of 1999 was released and sent out.

Personally, I think Do Yourself A Favor should be a single. Not the most exciting since we already have it in lesser audio quality but it's an earworm song that could appeal to alot of people. Fade it around the 5 minute mark and that's a realistic thing they could put into rotation at Sirius.

no yesterday or tomorrow, no better remedy for sorrow

Let's start the petition! I feel that "Something in the Water" is one of his most versatile songs, in that it works so well in so many different arrangements, and the album version and the unreleased version showcase that well.

I'm more surprised that Sony didn't release The New Master, even if in limited quantities, as horrible as it was.

The Vagina Experience MIGHT feature radio-friendly dance remixes by some of today's biggest productors, and they might get more airplay than the original! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

"1999 (live in Detroit 82)" has been released as the first single. I wouldn't mind hearing another one from the outtakes selection though.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Given that the Vault tracks are only in the Super Deluxe edition, wouldn't it make more sense for any singles to be taken from the main album? I know these songs are not new, but I think any singles should be aimed at more casual listeners or young people that didn't buy the 1999 album the first time around.
.
I don't see much point in aiming singles at the hardcore fans who are going to buy the Super Deluxe box anyway.
.
That being said, sod it, I'd love to see 'Vagina' as a single for shock value alone.

RIP EXTRALOVEABLE!!! sad
