Prince

Metallica Plays Prince

Metallica Plays Prince

While playing in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Rob Trujillo and Kirk Hammett from Metallica paid tribute with a rough-edged rendition When Doves Cry. The whole thing is pretty cringey, but it’s worth watching for its sheer novelty.

Prince: Nothing Compares 2 U

Prince: Nothing Compares 2 U

More than three decades ago, Prince & The Revolution recorded Nothing Compares 2 U – a song that would later top of the charts for Sinead O’Connor. Now, the Prince estate has released the original, accompanied by never-before-seen footage of 1984 rehearsal sessions.

When Doves Cry: Live Loop Cover

When Doves Cry: Live Loop Cover

Musician Dammien Alexander turns in a cover version of Prince’s When Doves Cry unlike any we’ve heard. First, he lays down all of the rhythms and backing vocals using a Boss V-5 looper, then overlays them with the lead vocals.

Kiss without Music

Kiss without Music

You don’t have to be beautiful… to turn me on. But it would help if you made some noises. The music video for Prince’s 1986 hit Kiss just got really, really strange and uncomfortable, with Mario Wienerroither’s musicless interpretation.

Chris Cornell: Nothing Compares 2 U

Chris Cornell: Nothing Compares 2 U

In the wake of musician Chris Cornell’s tragic suicide, this 2015 acoustic cover has been making the rounds. You’ll be hard-pressed to hold back tears as Cornell lends his soulful voice to a track written by another great musician we lost far too soon. Rest in peace.

While putting the finishing touches on his album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… last year, Dwight Yoakam learned the news of Prince’s death. He decided then and there to add another track in tribute to the artist, a twangy, bluegrass version of one of his most beloved tracks.

Purple RISE

Purple RISE

During NAMM 2017, musician Marco Parisi turned in a nuanced instrumental performance of the Prince classic Purple Rain with the help of the amazing ROLI Seaboard RISE, a keyboard which offers touch and pressure sensitivity along the length of each of its keys.

Gilmour & Jones: Purple Rain

Gilmour & Jones: Purple Rain

An amazing gem of a cover of Prince’s classic Purple Rain, performed back in 1992 by Tom Jones and Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. Nothing will ever be as perfect as the original, but this is as close as you can get.

Punful Reign

Punful Reign

Shiwar Awaz Berai Boo Ray. YouTuber Jim Jarmo put together another one of his pun-filled music videos, this time paying tribute to the late, great artist Prince, and as usual, using nothing more than actual social media profile names to provide the lyrical subtitles.

When Prince Challenged Fallon

When Prince Challenged Fallon

Jimmy Fallon and Questlove share their bizarre encounter with Prince that rivals Charlie Murphy’s basketball tale. In 2013, Prince summoned Jimmy to play ping pong even though a) they weren’t acquaintances and b) Jimmy’s first child was just born. Game. Blouses.

Prince in Concert: 1982

Prince in Concert: 1982

If you never saw Prince play live in his early days, tune in for the next hour or so, and check out this amazing performance from 1982 at the Capitol Theater. The video quality stinks, but it’s the music that counts, and boy is it some music.

Prince (1958-2016)

Prince (1958-2016)

Prince Rogers Nelson passed away on 4/21/16 at his residence. A genre unto himself, Prince maintained his privacy while entertaining us with a larger-than-life persona, which he backed up with prodigious talent and productivity.

Prince: Creep

Prince: Creep

A long lost performance from Prince’s 2008 Coachella appearance – an oh so special cover of Radiohead’s Creep. The clip had been removed due to copyright issues, but now even Prince himself seems to approve. The video quality stinks, but it’s the music that counts.

Starfish & Coffee

With songs like Sexy M.F. and Darling Nikki in his repertoire, we never thought we’d see Prince singing with Muppets. But that’s exactly what he did back in 1997, in this obscure bit of footage from The Disney Channel’s Muppets Tonight.
