Best Cover Songs by Prince

Which songs are in your opinion the best covers songs done by Prince?

I really like Crimson and Clover (Lotusflow3r) and A Case of U (One Nite Alone)

i just re-discovered this a few days ago. i wish it had been on the chocolate invasion
or something because it's so good that it really deserved to be on an album, i think.

as far as live covers, there are so many and it's too hard to chose from. some of the
performances of certain covers are rather tame yet then there's another night where
that cover was absolute fire. i enjoyed about 80% of his covers he did live. most of
them were very cool. well, almost all of them but some just got wore out i guess.

'When Will We B Paid' and 'The Whole Of The Moon' are my favourite.

Yes, and it is Prince playing that bass, which makes it even more delightsome. cool

I can't remember the title -- and is too lazy to search


But Prince & 3rdEyeGirl, their cover of the song by Nichole Nordemann, I find this so excellent cool


I am non-english so the christian lyrics does not bother me at all (I don't believe in God myself).

This cover song - reminds of "One Of Us" from Emancipation (the Joan Osborne cover song).



Both these 2 songs are very beautiful, imho. music woot!

Yes yes yes biggrin ... a great mix of covers and Prince original in the show, but Best of You was superb! Often wondered whether he asked the Foos if he could cover it or whether it was a nice surprise for them. I know they had huge respect for Prince (their Darling Nikki cover is top notch). Wished he'd have recorded it.

As for Whole of the Moon, and Johnny B Goode I really NEED to hear these asap!

Yet somehow you avoided all the interviews where they talked about this.

Tried checking PrinceVault?

I really don't get why people who claim to love something do absolutely zero effort to learn a little bit more about that thing they love; even merely Googling it seems to be too much effort.

This one with Frédéric Yonnet is amazing too. Though someone in the comments section said it sounds like an average bar band doing a cover. 🙄🙄🙄

Well One of Us has been in heavy rotation so that came to mind first but Case of U tops that to me. But i love Crimson and Clovers.
