How good is 17 Days (Full Length Version)?

The package threads auto locked n I'm not done talking about this gem! That little bit of vocalization after it usually fades is cute, wish there was more. The extra choruses, music, Brenda's spiel lol, the official fade, this is a classic! Haven't stopped playing it since I (we n thanks 2 whomever wink) got it. Probably more than I've played the short version. This was a highly sought after track. Any more love 4 it? smile music

Y don't u answer ur phone babe?!

It's my favorite song and I'm glad to get this version in such quality.

So god damn good.

It puzzles me as to why they would leave this off of Purple Rain Deluxe.

17 Days has been a favorite of mine ever since I first heard it and the extended version adds to that love perfectly.

imo the weakest of his extended/full-lenght version songs of that period. Too much of the same 'let the rain come down'. Wise descision to release the shorter version.

I tend to agree. It’s great to have, and I wish it had been in PR deluxe, but I’m not sure it adds much to the edited version.

Why can't people wet themselves over this. If it makes them happy.

I didn’t wet myself over it but it did feel like a special moment to get past the usual fade out part for the first time.
Repetitive or not those extra couple of minutes are a joy to have.

there is not a lot to it... mostly it is just longer... AFAIK the only extra lyrics is Brenda saying something...

there is some different guitar and other instruments and some additional vocals... but mostly the same lyrics... but I had not really paid attention...

Heard it yesterday for the first time, and am inclined to agree.
