Babydoll and Fourth July BETTER be the highest ranked album tracks or else...

 

can't remember if I ranked FOJ the second highest album track though, I might have done it for WYC to help it out... :rip:

Avg Rank: 8.98

  

I admittedly heard Mariah’s cover years before stumbling upon the original, which only served to make Prince’s version that much more life changing when I did hear it. That’s not to say Mariah’s approach, a slowly simmered R&B jam with the slightest of fluctuations until gently bubbling into a climax, is entirely without merit. Perhaps in a world where Prince failed to conceive the song first, The Beautiful Ones would be a favorite among the fans. But as things stand now Prince’s take, with its unbridled longing and sheer desperation whose intensity can only be translated through bloodcurdling shrieks of desire, remains unmatched, and it seems most of you agreed.

Babydoll. - UNDERRATED. The fact its not solo is why its kinda low.

cloudbusting - this is why prince is ****ing dead

Contrail - Too goddamn long and for why

DTF -  she should've done a better Prince song. This is so boring. 

Quote

Pop culture - Awfully done cover, ruined a classic. She should've listened to it before releasing it.

Quote

Subomie - I quite liked this for a while, as uneven and laborous as it is at times, but as soon as I got into Prince and his original I could never play this song all the way through again. Mariah has good taste in music, as evident by this album, but on the other songs she at least interpolates them well or turns them into magic. This is only ok.

honestly it's underrated! It's so long so that might hurt it a bit and it did tale a while to grow on me, but it's a masterful cover. However, there are better ones on the album.
