2 for 2uesday: Prince tribute covers

Not surprisingly there have been a number of artists covering their favorite Prince song.  Ironically, Prince did not want people to cover his songs.

Bruce Springsteen played “Purple Rain” in Brooklyn.  The song is currently available to download for free on his website.

 

Here’s Lin Manuel Miranda and the entire cast of Hamilton performing an impromptu version of “Let’s Go Crazy”

Bonus: Here’s one of my favorite songs that Prince covered at Coachella in 2008.  This is Prince’s version of Radiohead’s “Creep”.  Ironically, Thom Yorke of Radiohead thought Prince’s version was “hilarious” and wanted it blocked from YouTube until he heard that Prince had already blocked it and then wanted it unblocked, stating “It’s our fucking song”.

That said enjoy this song while it’s up on the web before it’s blocked.
