Honestly, "Crimson and Wild Thing"

Do you really think that does Jimi justice? Why not do a full Jimi cover,.... shit?

But ok, its not bad but i'm just saying, why?

to me, it sounded possibly so but not undeniably so. especially when i consider the source.

I don't get any nod to Jimi on this song (or combo of songs; however you want to look at it). Just a nice mashing that he decided to do.

what would have been really cool is if he did a little DJ cutting near the end and switched up the whole "joint" to a real mash by mixing the two versions into each other.

Prince's cover of Crimson and clover is better than the original.

I will be surprized if it is not a hit... his guitar is stellar...

Vocals are purrrfect.


Prince great job! worship worship

Wild Thing is NOT a Jimi Hendrix song!! It was a huge worldwide hit in the 60s, for a British band called The Troggs!!!!! Its just that Jimi himself covered it as well!!!!

EmbattledWarri
or

yeah the cover is actually alot better than original...
And I'm shondells fan...
But he did it justice...
Not much of a JImi nod,
I guess he says it the way jimi would...
But its like someone already said, it isnt like jimi wrote the songs...
now if he said Stone free... than maybe i'd get what your saying

I love this version by prince. Can't stop playing it. He's obviuosly gettin into this sought of stuff, after his cover of 'Creep'. Crossing the divide between music tastes and making them sound awesome. It's his voice. Love it.

Of course, because why would Prince want to acknowledge that Whitey can rock?

Overall, this new music isn't bad...something to grow on. This is the route he should have gone on after the Super Bowl performance.
