Song I wish Prince played live more often

It was always a joy to hear Prince spring a surprise and pull out an oldie live, but thinking about main stream Prince songs what songs do you think he really should have played live more often? A few from me...

Anna Stesia - guitar solos and all. Having missed Lovesexy live I don't think I ever heard him play it.

Uptown - Such a funky song, would have riocked the house. Didn't play this enough either.

Computer Blue - a much loved song by fans from his most popular album with great guitar solo moments - outside of Purple Rain tour I hardly ever see this live!

Around The World in a Day - Just so fresh sounding and was great during Parade tour - but hardly ever outside of that

Anything from his first album... especially I’m Yours and Crazy You would’ve been a nice addition to an acoustic set.

A few quotes from Prince: "the Lovesexy tour was hard. I was reliving that metamorphosis every might." So that is probably the reason he stopped playing AnnaStesia.
He also called the Revolution "cold and electronic" compared to the band he had on the Nude Tour. And Computer Blue, just like Darling Nikki, is one of those cold electronic songs, so that may explain why he didn't perform those in later years.

I don't think he ever played it, not even in abridged form, but would love him to have played 'Crystal Ball' live. In my dreams the 'Sign "O" The Times Tour would have made it to England and 'Crystal Ball' busted out in its exhilarating shapeshifting entirety, what a band workout that would've been!

First of all, Prince didn't call The Revolution cold and electronic - he said the sound of that era was cold and electronic. Since he was the one responsible for it, it is hardly a dig at The Revolution - of which he was the supreme leader.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

I probably should've mentioned some more recent stuff like Rainbow Children, Future Soul Song, Revelation, and some other shit.

I'm really just bothered there weren't more performances of For You stuff.

I'd like a medley of Tambourine, Life Can Be So Nice, Dance On, Tick Tick Bang, with a little 2 Nigs United thrown in there somewhere.

But for real, if I was at one of those soundchecks where he took requests (that happened, right?), I'd ask for Power Fantastic.

Off the top of my head, Tamborine, Head (in full), Housequake (in full), and anything from AOA and HnR2 (2 solid albums from later Prince that he didn't play or promote enough of)

This one was never played live but the 10 minute version from the Hot Thing soundcheck was so damn funky.

(And before somebody says it, yes I know it was played in sampler sets, fuck off)
