Great Cover of IIWYG form Martin Rossiter (Gene)

Martin Rossiter, Singer with Gene, a band that had some success in the 90s in the UK (and was great btw) covered "If Eye Was Your Girlfriend" in concert. Very interesting approach, I think.

Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise...

Great cover. What a nice take on the song. Very very nice. I added it to my favorites.

Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Did we watch the same video??? Seriously, I was there and I can tell you this was far from soulless, this man could sing the telephone book, he would still put all his heart in it and would manage to make me cry. I had goosebumbs all over when he sang it and the song really sprang into focus as he did
