What song would you choose?

Purple Rain

Ankleswingers Thu 12-Jan-17 21:15:34

Saying that I like many of his songs. When Doves Cry is also a favourite. Hard choice confused

What about Sometimes it Snows in April. I love that song, it always makes me cry

Or My Name is Prince

MrsDoylesTeabags Thu 12-Jan-17 21:19:21

Purple Rain? God this is tough

I think the aim is to get a song that was never a hit initially into the charts

Here's 'A way back home'

It also has to be a song that can be streamed internationally. Sometimes
It snows in April has already been used and PR was a hit last year which is why the list looks more
obscure. These are hard core fans!

A blast from the past smile

Urgh. How to pick!?
I'll go for Anotherloverholeinyohead or If I was Your Girlfriend from the list.
Though I would pick I Wanna Be Your Lover or 17 Days.

Let's go crazy

What, no Gett Off?! grin

< waves to Coco >

Those are 2 of my favourites too!

Cocolepew Fri 13-Jan-17 21:22:53

How are you Destiny?

Id pick When You Were Mine, mostly because I think it's too little known that he wrote it. I heard Cyndi version first but love his version too.
