List Rules Vote for your favorite Prince songs, not just singles and hits - and add more that we've missed so far

The ultimate list of Prince songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. With incredible R&B-meets-rock songs that blend into the pop genre, Prince was one of the most prolific artists of the past thirty-five years. Prince loved making music so much that he left his original label, Warner Bros., because they wouldn't let him release as much music as he wanted. Mr. Prince Rogers Nelson truly became an iconic, genre-defying, one-of-a-kind talent before his untimely death in April, 2016. 

This list runs the gamut of this man's prodigious output, covering from "When Doves Cry" and "Let's Go Crazy" to fan favorites like "Erotic City" and "Call My Name." The best Prince songs from all eras - including the 1990s and 2000s - are worthy of checking out below. If you think we missed an unheralded gem or left a classic too far down the list, add or reorder the list as you see fit. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
