1. "1999"
2. "Crystal Ball"
3. "Controversy"
4. "Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic"
5. "Sign o' the Times"

It hurts to not be able to include such amazing songs as "3121" and "Dirty Mind". Most of the title tracks are incredible, actually.

You skipped the prince album. Untechnically the title track should be "My Name is Prince," since he changed his name to the symbol after the album's release.

Purple Rain

Gold

Chaos and Disorder

Christopher Tracy's Parade

Lovesexy

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

Yeah, there were a few of those grey areas. That one seemed like a no brainer but Batdance, Newpower Soul (NPG album so should I leave it or include Goldnigga and exodus etc), Rave In2, From The Lotus, yada yada yada...

Damn- disregard my list as it doesn't include Controversy and, therefore, must be recalibrated...

Purple Rain

Dirty Mind

ATWIAD

The Exodus Has Begun/SOTT (sorry, couldn't decide)

What jumped out to me reading the list is how many of the title songs were not even close to being my favorite song on the album.
