Just about any Gary Numan song is superior to any Prince song.

Kiss. I particularly enjoy Damien Rice's version.

The guitar breakdown in the middle of Kiss makes me wanna shake mah bootay.

Who said Cars was a rock song? That shit ain't no rock song. Novelty song that gets dumber and dumber everytime I hear it. Man, fuck Cars, already.

"Cars," definitely. There are only one or two Prince songs I even remotely like, and "Kiss" isn't one of them.

i find it hard to divorce the track from the artist

Prince - whatever

Gary Numan - pop spokesperson for Margaret Thatcher's Tory Party

Kiss all the fucking way

"Me, I Disconnect from You"--well, that's a different story.

Me, I prefer "You Are In My Vision."

I'm going with "Cars"--but just barely.

This is a good poll--these songs seem somehow suited for comparison, though I can't really explain why.

He looked to be about thirty or so. Wonder if he regrets it now?


I KNOW THAT GUY.
i do. for real. unless there are two or more people who had him autograph their arm and get it tattooed.
believe me. he does not regret it.

Cars.

I like the Prince song, fine, but there's droning, pounding atmospherics of the Gary Numan song and that gets under my skin to this day.

Kiss is a decent, but standard, Prince song.

Up to the 90s, definitely. Some of his earlier records are absolutely superb.

Gary Numan - some say he had one good song. If he did, I never heard it.
