Next month will make an anniversary for Prince. 40 years ago, Prince debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 with Soft and Wet, and to celebrate, we have a Prince Survivor focused on his singles. It came from his debut album also released 40 years ago called For You.

Prince's discography is beyond immense with a new album practically every year - it is simply amazing how prolific the man was in his lifetime. In order to cull down the discography, I chose singles that actually made the top 100 in either Europe, Australia, or the US - his main markets. That made for 69 singles, and then I added some of the more recent tracks to make it 75.

The singles are listed below along with the year they hit the charts:

Spoiler:

1978   "Soft and Wet"
1979   "I Wanna Be Your Lover"
