I Wish U Heaven

How great is this song? I know it's one of his greatest hits and everything but it's still one of my all time favourite songs. It's just perfect, everything about it - his vocals, the lyrics, the melody everything!!

There is also a wonderful version with Sheila E on vocals which is great too.

Could be a live version from the Lovesexy tour.. maybe Japan?

Seems like Prince had some troubles singing I Wish U Heaven live. question

I know Prince sang this song in Dortmund 1988, but he later passed this song (lead vocal) over to a female, could be Sheila E.?

Correct this if I'm wrong.. smile

I have a bootleg called Sendai 89 and mine says Sheila E is on vocals, perhaps this is incorrect?

^ Yes this is what I recall also. And I think I own the same bootleg, (with a cartoon pic of Prince?),

Thank you, it is definately not Boni Boyer singing (the whole song).

Beautiful - and yeah 'heavenly' is a great way to describe it. One of my favourite songs. Prince did seem to struggle with it live though, the Dortmund performance wasn't very good.

Hundalasiliah!

Yeah that is the one. Really cool bootleg! I listen to it all the time.

One of the best on Lovesexy! Too bad it wasn't included on The Hits/The B-Sides...
