Hope this thread does not turn into a bitch fest. Anyone singing Prince songs is honouring his legacy.


Keep all discussion civil folks, thanks - luv4u

I must be missing where the bad news is located in the article.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

As in people covering his songs. I think some musicians are particulary hard to cover well, and he is one of them. Sorry if you missed that.

This will be awful. Just like the few times people on The Voice have covered his stuff.

I am not going to waste my energy getting upset about this kind of stuff, there's no point. Things have changed and there is nothing we can do about the entertainment deals that are being negotiated by the estate. The bottom line really is making sure Paisley Park has the funding needed to stay open. Deals like this will no doubt be a way of ensuring that. I am also always willing to be pleasantly surprised by those who think they can do his music justice, but no one will ever replace him.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

I do not watch that show but I might for this. not that I WANT to see it but I want to support his music getting out there. My advice is to sing it however you like... but do not try to be Prince.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

I'm not a huge fan of these shows, but if some kid who otherwise would not have known anything about Prince and his music gets turned on to him/it because of the show...what's the harm in that?

please prince had country sounding songs... many of his songs could be countryfied just fine... a great song will often work across several styles or genres.

I think Leanne Rhimes, or Carrie Underwood, does a country Purple Rain. I could easily see NC2U (about lost love), Little Red Corvette (CARS and lost love), Take Me With You, or Raspberry Beret being countrified.

Hoping someone pulls out a “deep” cut. I would LOVE to see someone do 7 or Dorothy Parker.

When people cannot cover a Prince song well, it is proof of his greatness; while he may be often imitated, he cannot be duplicated.

All's I'm trying to say is that there's a reason why these shows wait till the musician is dead to cover his/her catalogue.

The problem is when young people who might not know his music are introduced to it via a bad performance on one of these shows. Like last year when one of Gwen Stefani’s singes did NC2U and it was like a bad mashup between how Prince sang it and Sinead’s version. Needless to say he didn’t move on in the competition. Hopefully Lionel Ritchie can do his music more justice. Katy Perry? Ugh.

So is The One U Wanna C. Prince, himself, did a country version of Alphabet Street. And When Doves Cry makes a great bluegrass tune (starts at 3:10)...
