Love Etta but sorry, not even close to Prince for this one
Yeah I'm with you. It's still a nice cover.
I liked Ec’s lead, but the left handed wasn’t so good. Neither of them beat Prince on that one.
This is why no cover can be better than Prince. He's live (the guitar bucks when he's walking at :26) and in a downpour. And he's the only one who doesn't look like he's getting soaked!
Edit: Finally, after 4 tries. Stupid NFL copyright.
Sounds thrown together.
Mitch Ryder's When You Were Mine. I like it more than the Prince version.
Also Sinead O'Connor.
I meant for "Purple Rain." I usually don't like Prince, but I can't deny that live version.
Prince was great. He could do it all. Like Stevie Wonder. But shorter.
An old friend of mine had a band for a long time in New Braunfels, TX. They knew like 80 songs and could play a show of country, rock, or oldies. They played an ass kicking Purple Rain and it brought the house down every time I saw them play it.
Stapleton does a bang up job on it. and my post-SRV Texas Strat hero Hadden Sayers kills it too.
I don’t really dig princes radio hits but he was absolutely one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. Amazing guitar player, amazing pianist, pop songwriter bar non, consummate performer.
I went with missus to see him play in a small theatre show, it was just him and a piano... chills...
Hopefully history holds true and no one here cares much what I think...ha...but I’ve never understood the hype about this tune. I’m a big fan of Prince’s music, but Purple Rain, as a song, is just kinda boring compared to a lot of his other work. He could play, of course, and the structure of the song gave him a great opportunity to stretch his legs, especially live. His *performances* of this song, to me, were the difference makers in the legacy of the song and not the song itself. Just one man’s opinion, of course.
I like it a lot.
