Controversial Take: Mountains. Prince's Greatest Song.

There, I said it.

It has everything:

A uniquely Prince-y sound. NO ONE ELSE
COULD PULL IT OFF.

A gorgeous, effortless melody.

Incredible drum-programming as only Prince can do.

A great groove. Impossibly to not make you want to move.

Great lyrics - utterly uplifting.

Is that supposed to be funny, Lisa? Or is it Wendy?

I do like the song a great deal. But you do know that Prince only wrote the lyrics to that song?

Well if you credit Eric Leeds and Atlanta Bliss with 1/3rd of the heavy lifting and Wendy and Lisa with 1/3rd I'll consider your post at least mildly amusing. It in my opinion is in my top ten.

i saw a meme and im sure you have too, of how prince writes his best song yet and never releases it. we probably don't even know the name of his best song... and like all things, i think this is a highly opinionated thing. (just bare in mind this is all coming from somebody who hardly ever listens to Adore)
eye dont think U heard me . . .

It's not even the best song on Parade. Not even in the top 3 on that album.
