    I'm not really a fan of Prince but those would be my preferences.

    Would someone do Led Zeppelin if I provided the songs?

    You're killing me! No "I Would Die 4 U" or "Let's Go Crazy." Plus choosing "Little Red Corvette" took me like five minutes of agonizing.

    It was hard choosing the songs because I wanted to go with songs everyone knew, not his best. The battle of Prince songs from his entire playlist would be a completely different battle. Plus, I wanted to match up the heavy-hitters so people would have to agonize for five minutes.

    I'm hoist on my own petard - I listened to all four songs yesterday, and I love all of them. One thing became abundantly clear to me - Prince is extremely rhythm-driven. And "When Doves Cry" is possibly the most fascinating pop song ever.

    Okay, voting mostly based on how ground-breaking they were:
    When Doves Cry

    Okay, voting over for round two - the finalists are:
    a. When Doves Cry
    b. Sign 'O' The Times

    We're going out of town for the weekend, so if someone else wants to declare a winner on Saturday, that would be fine with me. Otherwise, we'll leave voting open for the weekend and declare the winner when I get back.

    Sign.

    Only because Doves is one of those songs that if I never heard it again for the rest of my life, I wouldn't miss it. I totally expect Doves to win, though.
