I've said it before and I don't mind saying it again, Prince has written some of the greatest pop songs on earth - Kiss, 1999, Little Red Corvette, et al - and THE best pop song of all time, Raspberry Beret, which is an amazing song.

Somebody above recommended the 3-disc hits & b-sides collection and I'd second that. The b-sides disc has some amazing tracks - especially 17 Days and How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore. Recently, Musicology is worth a listen too. Patchy but at times quite good.

Edit: just to add, because I almost forgot, who can forget that this is the man who also wrote Nothing Compares 2 U and, albeit under a pseudonym, Manic Monday.

Not only has Prince written some of the best pop songs, but he can rock out when he wants to. Just listen to The Cross...

The Symbol album is pretty good. That's got My Name is Prince and Seven. This came out after Diamonds and Pearls and right before he changed his name to something no one can pronounce.

The Cross is one of my favorite Prince songs.

Sign O' the Times is his magnum opus with Purple Rain close behind.

Nobody's mentioned 1999 yet which is a Prince must-have... 1999, Little Red Corvette, DMSR, etc. It's a great funky dance album.

And, some people think it's cheesy, but the movie Purple Rain is definitely worth watching, if only for the scorching musical numbers. To borrow a phrase from our boy Bono, Prince was on fire!
