    "Crucial" (electric guitar version)
    "Joy In Repetition"
    "Elephants & Flowers" (*demo version)

    most of my faves are unreleased

    I do like the b-side of "America" called "Girl" (extended version)

    I think some of his B sides are great. Like 17 Days and Erotic City.

    "Erotic City", "Purple Rain", "U Got the Look", "Controversy", "I Wanna Be Your Lover"...so many classics....

    I hate to sound so typical, but "Purple Rain" not only showcases Prince's guitar skills, but also his unique vocal cadence and his range.

    That whole "Batman" soundtrack was just a thrown together mishmash of unreleased tracks and studio clips.

    Anyone my age and older remembers Prince and his woes with his recording contract. The "Batman" soundtrack was a symptom of this dark time in his career.

    Nothing Compares 2U because I love the way Skinhead O'Connor sings it.
