Thanks for writing this — it’s Saturday morning here, and now, because of this piece, it’s going to be a weekend full of Prince music. I like your choices; I agree, it’s hard to pick, his oeuvre is like a treasure chest: where do you start?
“If I Was Your Girlfriend” is a great choice, but not one that readily would have come to me (I’m listening to it as I type). For me, “The Ballad Of Dorthy Parker” would be somewhere in my top. I love the song’s whimsy and sassy innocence, “….let get me a fruit cocktail, Dorthy laughed…”. Prince is a romantic, and I’ll always adore him for his innate sweetness.
