What song would u like 2 hear Prince do a cover version?

I love Elvis Presley's version of Always on My Mind. It's so heartfelt it makes me cry listening 2 it. I've always wanted 2 hear Prince sing this song in concert. Prince if ur reading this.....
"Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise."

"Am I black or white? Am I straight or gay?"

"We had fun, didn't we?"
-Prince (1958-2016) 4ever in my life

"Give me your love"- Curtis Mayfield...I know it'd never happen, but I think P would do it justice.

"More Love"- Smokey Robinson...It sounds like something he would have covered for Emancipation.

"Wish you were here":-Pink Floyd....don't know why, but I'd like to hear Prince's interpretation of that song.

"Climbing up the Walls"- Radiohead.....yeah I know, I know, but there are elements of that song that remind me of Prince (the chorus and the way the guitarist goes into the solo)

those are just off the top of my head.....
Good music makes me happy.

The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

I think he could possibly do a killer version of this or just do it no good whatsoever... it'd be a toss up I think but he'd be the guy to cover it.

I'd just be happy with an official release of "Just My Imagination".

Hell, he could even re-record the whole damn thing in the studio, as long as he lifts that out-of-body guitar solo from it and drops it right down into it.

His own music, sooooo many unreleased songs

But Just My Imagination was the only cover I still love to this day(done during the Lovesexy tour) perfectly turned into a Prince song

Since Dance Electric was officially given to Andre Cymone, I would love to hear that one covered.
