Mitch Ryder doing "When You Were Mine" is cool-ish. Also, didn't Warren Zevon or someone do a version of "Raspberry Beret"?

I don't see anyone else here posting videos, so I'll just display the Youtube link. A Norwegian band nails "Head" in a 2016 trubute concert!

Josh Homme doing "It" sounds like a slinky combo. I think it would be interesting to see how others could do that song, too. "It" is such an open canvas of a tune.

I think is a beautiful thing...as coldly electronic and dispassionately passionate as the original.

This is sheer ectasy! Even Prince bowed down to her.



Prince was more than a musical legend – he was a friend.

That’s how singer Meli’sa Morgan knew him. She became acquainted with him in 1986 when he allowed her to cover his song “Do Me, Baby.” His original version, released four years earlier, never charted but hers shot to No. 1 as a Billboard R&B single. After recording it, she was in Los Angeles for a Lionel Richie concert, which Prince was also attending, and he requested to meet Morgan and a friendship was born.

I think if Prince had done a proper version of the song, it's probably close to what it'd sound like. It's a new wave type song anyway, and she certainly brought out those elements in it. He certainly was listening to radio in the late 70s and ealry 80s when new wave was making... well, waves through radio.

Only a few artist covered Prince songs throughout his career Chaka Khan with "I feel for u", meli'sa Morgan "Do me baby" Sinead with "Nothing compares to u, Alicia Keys "How come you don't call me anymore?" Tom Jones "Kiss" I prefer the prince versions to most remakes anyone like the remakes better than the original? [Edited 3/6/17 5:11am]

Have you heard Corrinne Bailey's version of "I Wanna Be Your Lover?" Her version is more jazz like and sounds great. But however, I will always prefer Prince's version better!

Kevin and Bethany Paige did an amazing tribute to Prince that was posted on YouTube. Someone also had posted here on the org about it. Unfortunately, it is no longer available on YT. I have never heard anyone else do any of Prince's music as well as they did. I was completely in awe and it's the only tribute that I've felt was worthy.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio… they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end.

Sorry I missed that....

I like this though...

STIJN Dives DEEP into Princes Catalogue and although its programmed and all electronic THIS Artist manages to add his OWN Special Flavour without diluting the original...

I have played this a few times over

Apparently he is doing anohter on June 7

Warren Zevon sang lead on Hindu Love Gods' version of "Raspberry Beret." The rest of the band consisted of three members of R.E.M.

That's it! Thanks for the clarification! I knew there was more to it than I was recalling.

I'm sure he had an opinion .... Check this thread for example, and especially the posts of christerfalck, as he made that great release possible:
