4) If I Was Your Girlfriend
5) Feel U Up
6) Shockadelica
7) Housequake
8) Rockhard In A Funky Place

Just to qualify my choices...

I struggled placing IIWYGF. It's definitely the best song in terms of lyrics. I just personally really like the funky and poppy stuff.

The reason I put Housequake so low is because I think the studio version sounds a bit dated and thin. Maybe the remaster will help me appreciate it more. I think it rocks when performed live.

There isn't a song I dislike on this album. wink

Wow, I had no idea 'Good Love' was so unpopular. I think it’s sensational.

i wasn't thrilled with it when I first heard it. It felt like a throwaway b-side (not that many, if any, of his b-sides were throwaways). There was a bubble gum, lightness to it that felt cheap, at the time. I think the voice really threw me on this one. While we'd heard the Camille voice, it felt like maybe "Good Love" would've benefited from his regular voice. Given it more depth. It was felt really high, treble-y, up in the ether, not rooted.

I like it more now.

I agree - there are parts of it that are a bit jarring. I still kind of like it (it's very colorful), but it still lags behind almost all of his released output from the 80s for me.

This is one is too difficult...seriously love all the tracks...BUT

Good Love is one of those songs that seems to really divide...at least in my house.

I LOVE that song, I have since the very first time hearing it on the Bright Lights soundtrack. If I HAD to choose a fave Camille song...it would be GL or Housequake.

However my husband seriously HATES Good Love. He isn't a the biggest Prince fan...but, since being with me he has his fave P songs. Mountains in particular has become the one he cranks whenever it comes up on the shuffle. But man, when GL comes on seriously can't complain enough every single time it comes on. A lot of my friends over the years have the same response. I will never understand it.

We're gonna need a bigger boat

I really don't understand the lack of love for Good Love! Back in D.C. in early '88, Good Love was pumped on the radio like a single! I actually thought it was going to come out as a physical single. But then all of the sudden Alphabet St. dropped.

I always saw some similarity between these two (even though Good Love is a Camille track). Both songs have a "second part" to the song (in Good Love it's declared, in Alphabet St. it's more like a classic "extended version" that continues after the main song.) Both are also very upbeat, joyful tracks with funky breakdowns. As far as radio play was concerned, to me these were back to back hits. Love them both.

1. Housequake

2. If I Was

3. Good Love

4. Strange Relationship

5. Rock Hard In a Funky

6. Rebirth of the Flesh

7. Shockadelica

8. Feel U Up

That's my ranking of the songs in terms of what I like.

This is my ranking on how they should be sequenced on the album:

1. If I Was

2. Feel U Up

3. Good Love

4. Housequake

5. Strange Relationship

6. Rebirth of the Flesh

7. Shockadelica

8. Rock Hard In a Funky

Starts out mysterious, then into delightful(Good Love), hardcore(Housequake), mellows a little(Strange), hardcore again twice(Rebirth and Shocka), ending on jaw dropping guitar(Rock Hard)!

Good love is a masterpiece and everything I like about Prince. This song is Prince.

The dog sample always gets me!

I put it number 2 on the list (after IIWYG).

Rebirth of the Flesh is even in the Lovesexy Tour Rehearsals.

But princevault says it was not performed live.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.
