Outtakes Poll (Summer 2019) - Stage 1: Shortlist entries *NOW CLOSED*

UPDATE: STAGE 1 IS NOW CLOSED
Thank you to everyone who submitted suggestions. The short list is now being compiled and Stage 2 will begin later on today.

Original Post:

Hi everyone. Inspired by Moonbeam's 'Best Album' and 'Best Original's track' polls, I've decided to make a poll of Prince's best outtakes.

The aim of this poll is to discovery this community's favourite unreleased Prince song. However, before conducting the main poll I think it'll be wise to create a shortlist, hence why I've labelled this thread 'Stage 1'.

To get involved simply post a list of all the songs that you'd like to have considered for the short list. You can list as many tracks as you like but try to aim for around 15 minimum - 30 maximum if you can.

What is considered an Outtake?
For the purposes of this poll, any studio recording that Prince participated in that hasn't been released in its entirety up until now. This can include...
* entirely original songs such as 'A Place in Heaven'
* songs that featured Prince's vocal guide for other artists such as 'Baby Go Go'
* full versions of songs that were edited down for release such as 'The Beautiful Ones (full length)'
* alternative recordings or remixes of songs such as 'Around the World in a Day (Versace Experience 2006)'

Each time a track appears in a list it will be considered a vote. Depending on the number of votes cast I'll aim to cut the list down to approximately 50 tracks or as close to that as I can get. These tracks will be taken across to stage 2 which will have the conventional Moonbeam poll scoring method.

If you want to include a song that Prince recorded or mixed more than once then please be specific as to which version you mean. For example...
A Place In Heaven (Prince Vocal) or A Place In Heaven (Lisa Vocal)
Empty Room (1985) or Empty Room (1992)
We Can Funk #2 or We Can Funk #5

If you are unsure or need some inspiration princevault.com is the best resource for help.

The last day for submissions will be the 31st July. I won't begin counting until this stage has closed so feel free to edit and update your list as much as you see fit up until then. I'll aim to have the main poll up and ready for early August.

I'll take a little time to think and post my choices later today. I'm looking forward to seeing which tracks are popular. Thanks in advance for your participation. All the best everyone.

Thanks for this list Deanm. I know at least one of the entries you’ve marked does exist and I will include it, but if we could limit this list to tracks that are in circulation that would be great. I’m trying to establish the best song that the community has heard. Thanks all the same. wink

In a large room with no lights
In a large room with no lights
In a large room with no lights
In a large room with no lights....

G-Spot
The Screams of Passion
Neon Telephone
Extraloveble
Desire
High Fashion
Desire
Emotional Pump
Come Elektra Tuesday
All My Dreams
Old Friends (Prince solo)
Empty Room ‘85

I could go on, but I’m ok with not getting ones we already have in excellent quality. Especially if we are only getting one single disc a year for eternity. I want songs I’ve never heard in perfect quality first. With In a large room with no light of course.

forgot to add Mutiny, Strange Way, Heaven and If it'll Make You Happy. I won't really be happy unitl we have all 100 songs that were given as possible inclusion for Purple Rain. Maybe we have most? A comprehensive list of those songs would be incredible.

Hopefully the Estate is keeping tabs on polls like this (1 disc collections per calendar year is just not enough). I'm also a huge Bob Dylan follower too and his Estate puts out copious amounts of music each year. Fans lap it up, who cares about the general public. If sales are the driving force then the Prince Estate should just sell the contents of the vault. Let someone else put his stuff in circulation.

One more vote for In A Large Room With No Light.
