Ultimate Classic Rock: underrated Prince songs

Ran across this yesterday and made for a somewhat interesting read.


https://ultimateclassicro...=algorithm


I agree with some of the choices listed and I like the inclusion of even the 2000's albums. A couple of omissions, but decent list.

I definitely agree on "Vicki Waiting".

.

But the author described "Strange Relationship" as having a "bouncy, sunny gait". Hmmm. I'll give him "bouncy", but "sunny"? I always found the music just as murky and quietly menacing as the lyrics. But that's just me.

Glad to see "$" get some love. That's a personal fave! Overall, I agree with the list.

Some good stuff there. But the biggest song that many casual Prince fans don't know about (especially in the mode of classic rock) is Joy in Repetition.

Good choices until its gets to the rave album.
After that year all his choices I disagree with.

I dont agree with their assessment of Grafitti Bridge but I'm glad my favourite Prince song made the list: The Question Of U.

Gawd that website, kept refreshing on my mobile device.
I agree for the most part with the sentiments but couldn’t make it to the bottom of the list due the refreshing nonsense.

The writer had me at "My Love Is Forever".

Every auto-refresh gives each ad another "click" (view). Sites that do that are dishonest to their advertisers and shady to the viewers.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.
