Purple Rain is NOT funk. It's shitty 80's Top 40 R&B drivel.

Spill the Wine (with Eric Burdon) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6qcafgLHe4

The World Is A Ghetto: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKKMdmPBWRk

Prince -- another genius, I take it? Outside of people concerned about fashion, I never understood his massive popularity.

I like most of Prince's stuff, especially Sign 'O the Times. However, he doesn't write funk music, he writes dance music. Very different.

Criminally underrated funk song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1MwPDtPjbs

I'm not an expert, but have heard plenty. It always sounds way too thin, reedy. That's why i can't sit down and give it a fair shake.
