Making the Perfect Prince Playlist

Cover of "Very Best of"

Start with “The Very Best of Prince.”

Delete everything except the first nine songs.

Now you have:

  • “I Wanna be your Lover”
  • “1999”
  • “Little Red Corvette”
  • “When Doves Cry”
  • “Let’s Go Crazy”
  • “Purple Rain”
  • “I Would Die 4 You”
  • “Rasberry Beret”
  • “Kiss”

Add the following:

  • “Controversy”
  • “Dirty Mind”
  • “Delirious”
  • “Let’s Pretend We’re Married”
  • “When You Were Mine”
  • “Bambi”

Throw that beauty on shuffle, mix with some Rick James & Thriller/Off the Wall era Michael Jackson and you’ve got yourself a nice little party going. Oh: make sure to play “Purple Rain” last.
