Didn't think it too bad. Couple of dodgy moments but otherwise a reasonable enough cover. Nice to see such an oldie being covered.
I'm going to be a Belieber ffs.
Now where's my f**king tea?

He didn't destroy it. It's about your perspective. It's just a cutesy music nerd's charming take on Prince's classic.

I think maybe Patrick should have sung it in his normal register. He was really rough, especially in the parts where he really took it higher.

It's not a bad cover, he just shouldn't have sung it in falsetto.

Good job. I really hate the genre that Fall Out Boy fall under, but I wasn't aware the singer was any good at all.

It's a cute rendition of the song, and pretty decently done. I like it.

Destoyed it? Yes some might agree that was a massacre

However I think it was a nice tribute and will hopefully turn on a bunch of Fall Out Boys fans to the amazing artist known as Prince. Ain't nobody...

agreed he does not have a very natural falsetto.

I thought it was decent.

Has there ever been a better cover of a Prince song than that woman who covered "Do Me Baby"?

A very respectable version. Great guitar work, although his falsetto is not the best.

Yeah, it is actually a pretty intelligent comment, dear. You see, I'm white too and know quite well what my falsetto singing sounds like.

You can usually tell a white male's falsetto from a black person's falsetto very easily, and that should have nothing to do with prudency. Yeah, but let's not even mention words that connote racial factors, especially when coupled up with the "wink" -emoticon, which implies irony and sarcasm on the internet.

I doubt there exists a scientific study on the various qualities and determining biological / socio-cultural factors why the falsetto on male individuals of various origins sounds different in the popular music context, so let's not extend this into the potentially most ridiculous .org flamewar ever, okay? This guy? He does a decent job at it, but in my opinion it still doesn't entirely cut it. Could be also due the fact that he does not predominantly sing in falsetto, of course. Like noted by one of the other posters, Prince hasn't always been able to deliver the vocals that perfectly when doing the song live. There is still a considerable difference in the overall tone

I didn't know Jonah Hill was in a band, or could even sing. I liked him in Superbad.

Yeah, that's exactly what an expression like "white boy falsetto" could mean to me - it's the Bee Gees thing. That specific one does however sound quite alright when coupled with the other parts in his lower register. The problem with many, uhm, paler contributors to the falsetto style is just that they can't usually carry an entire tune convincingly all throughout. Thank goodness Beck had the decency to quit doing that thing after "Midnite Vultures".

Now, this one I've actually liked:


The studio version seems to be removed from youtube, but in any case being able to carry out "Beat It" at all requires a lot from the vocalist. I mean, anyone is free to try out themselves...

novabrkr - i'm no scientist but I do have ears - and you're talking rubbish !
Some white people have, what I would call a good falsetto and some don't (nasal-squeeking Bee Gees for example). Some black people have good falsettos and some don't.

Much of it is subjective anyway but to tie it to a race/ethnic background???? Not intelligent (or accurate) !
