I don't see "Purple Rain" on No. 1 in USA and UK singles charts in the 80's :)
But "Sweet Child O'Mine" was No. 1 in USA for two weeks in September 88.

I've never told that :p
BTW in my opinion each charts is only an entertainment for voters. The art is something we can't measure, so it's senseless to say that some song is better than the other..

I know :p and I couldn't agree more.

During the 80s I HATED both Prince and Guns N' Roses with a passion!!!

Now I don't mind either song but don't really want to vote for either because I don't actually know which one I like more.
