The Best Prince Post-Eighties Tracks According To Me

I make no secret of the fact that while I’ve been a die-hard Prince fan for 35 years the recorded musical output of his that I enjoy and listen to the most definitely runs through and up to the end of the 1980’s. Once the 1990’s roll around, let’s just say P & I began to move in different directions. There have been some notable exceptions along the way, tho and here they are. And in no particular order.

No annotations, I’d rather folks just listen.
Questions and comments welcome.

Prince Personal Social Cultural Project I

“We’ve all used shock value to sell things, I used shock to get attention, but back when I was doing the freaky songs in the freaky outfits; we were exploring ideas. I wanted my band to be multi-racial, male & female, to reflect society. The song ‘Sexuality’ was about education & literacy. ‘P Control’ & ‘Sexy M.F.’ were about respect for women. Go & listen to the verses, all people focus on is the hooks.”
