What song would u like to see Prince cover live?

Saw Prince do great covers of Let's Go by The Cars and Crimson and Clover last week in Anaheim.

I think he would do wonders with a classic like "Peg" by Steely Dan. It covers all genres (jazz, funk, blues, rock, and pop) that he could go any direction and add his own interpretation to it.

What songs do you think would fit Prince as a cover?

Pink Floyd, some of their great guitar solos -- "Comfortably Numb" maybe, or "Hey You"?

Gold dust woman> Fleet wood M.
Anything from early Journey, preferably Open Arms.
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.

He should cover "Who's That Lady?" & do a mind blowing guitar jam that would make Ernie Isley proud! Would be interesting to hear him play "A Forest" by the Cure and something by the Black Crowes like "Hotel Illness".....also, Led Zep's "The Wanton Song"

The song 'help' by John Lennon.
The lyrics are something he could relate to.

Tis topic has come up before. The Cure is always mentioned. Maybe he will finally give in and do a cover of one of their songs. Just Like Heaven had been mentioned before.

He seems to be going 4 the dance classics mostly, so Lost In Music by Sister Sledge would fit him like a glove. cool
