Purple and Gold


Purple and Gold, hands down. Period. With almost all of his music, I can find something redeeming in it, but I have failed time and again to find anything redeeming in Purple and Gold, except that it was written for a team he respected.

what?

My Name Is Prince, I LOOOVE this track, great video, brilliant with Prince dancing in that water... nice outfit chainhat, symbol gloves... excellent, I have so many memories I was in spain and saw the video on a restaurant (via MTV), I was in awe, bought the tape AND the CD on this holiday, playing the tape in my Sony walkman (long before cd-walkman and before Mp3 of course).


I have no idea why the song is so hated by many, I really enjoy the bragging lyrics, brilliant and self ironic, I like that Prince loved himself so much, and the smaller kick to MJ (No kings), just excellent,


the intro to the song with I Wanna Be You Lover/ Controversy/ Partyup, wow great, I love the bassline as well.


To the haters - lets' agree to disagree on this, what an amazing track and wonderful music video!


cool cool cool


I agree. I always loved "My Name is Prince' and think the video is what really made the song for me, his dancing. Actually, I was hoping he was going to play this at the arena during the 1st Celebration in 2000, because he'd taken his name back (instead of the symbol) at that time. So I kept waiting for him to play it, thinking the audience would go wild when he did since he was once again "Prince". But he didn't play it. sad

I respect opinions and fully understand that you might not like Sweet Baby, but are you seriously saying that it's the absolute worst song that Prince wrote? You really can't come up with even 1 track which isn't as good as Sweet Baby? Wedding Feast? Purple & Gold? Jughead?

Well...

The ones you mentioned are not my favorites, but at least they sound funny to me.

Humerous songs IMO.

And I see beauty in so many songs, but not in "Sweet Baby", it's just slimy and boring to me.

Nevermind... "Insatiable", "Sexy M.F." and "I Like It There" have been mentioned here.

I love those!

But wouldn't it be boring if we all had the same opinion?

I agree with u, Joris! nod


A little shocking imho.


Insatiable is one of Prince's finest ballads, lovely, nasty, what's not to like about this beauty..


Sweet Baby + On The Couch.. fine songs as well...


I have no clue to, why a Prince "fan" like "Rod" could mention those 3 as bad examples..? eek

What's the point of asking this question? confused

I guess it's interesting to some of us.

And maybe we're all waiting for someone to name "When Doves Cry",

so that we all can scream "blasphemy!" wink

I used to hate "Graffiti Bridge" until about 2 years ago when I saw the unreleased "music video" that was deleted from the movie. It gave me a whole new appreciation for the song and it's now one of my favorites.

You all are calling out some really good tracks. Dead On It does it for me. I assume he made a song like that for a reason. Me no like, no matter how many times I listen to it.

Prince has a breathtakingly large number of truly awful songs from which to choose. Narrowing it down to one is an impossible task. I'll have to leave it at two: Arms of Orion and Jughead. Those are the worst as far as my taste goes.

I love P Control. Now, I will admit that when I'm driving down the street, during the summer, and have my CD player turned up full blast, blaring out Prince, and P Control comes on, my face turns red, and I reach over, looking all around to see if anyone is looking at me, and turn it down to personal listening levels. I guess there is still some part of a little girl in me that thinks, "oohhhhh I'll be in so much trouble if they hear me listening to this". lol

I loved Cause & Effect. It's one of the songs I was listening to on a self-made CD on my way to Atlanta for that final concert. sad It was hard to listen to it for awhile after that.

I don't understand the hate for Purple & Gold. It is a fight song. His first worst song was Temptation. His last worst song was Ain't About to Stop. Push, Daddy Pop, JugHead, (I Like) Funky Music, and a few others in between.

eek Temptation is awesome lol but yes Ain't About to Stop is really one of the most crap songs he ever did with that female singer, I forgot her name, who sings like a constipated hamster. I forgot about that song.

The early version/demo of Daddy Pop is slamming tho.

I agree.That song sounds like a weird,60s psychedelic experiment gone wrong smile and the spoken "conversation" with God is just plain creepy

I really like many parts of the song (the verses are great). But there are elements that are a bit cringe.

Purple & Gold - that's a given

Jughead - obvs bad but decent NPG music

Screwdriver - I like this. 'I'm your driver, you're my screw' - cheesy but funny line

The United States of Division - terrible chorus so yes

Cause & Effect - don't mind it

I'd also add Resolution. My 5 year old could have wrote it
