I submit for your approval, my English instructor, Mr. Richard Hart performing "Laying Low":

The guitar wobbly effects distract from the song and he uses a lot of half-rhymes (line and time), good otherwise.

Is there any rule that says a song must rhyme, though?  It must have flow and rhythm, but is rhyme a necessary element?  And I agree there may have been a bit too much wobbly effect.

Half-rhymes and assonant rhymes are perfectly legitimate anyway.

I'm the biggest Prince fan besides Prince himself.

Wonderful song.  Partial to The Glade Part II myself.  Tear up every time I hear it.  Great film as well.  I like me some Wes Studi, but I felt he needed gutting by Russel Means.

The best album ever made:


Colossal.

And the Japanese CD verson is the best in sound quality. Nothing will match that record's genius.

And it contains the greatest love song ever: Adore.

I would go with "Purple Rain" and "Take Me With You," respectively. The latter should be played at every wedding reception ever.
