Prince, playing “Crimson and Clover” like he was born to it:

I’m not sure there was a style of pop music he couldn’t nail.

    Wow! Love this song – Tommy James’ version was a favorite as a kid. I like the way Prince incorporated “Wild Thing” into it. Nice!

    So is Joan Jett’s version.

    And I know it wasn’t effortless probably no one worked harder but damn did he make it look effortless … just not the same without him.

    Boy, he butchered that song up……..he was a talented fellow, but that song doesn’t work for him.

    May he RIP…

      Hate to say it, but I agree. I love the TJ&S version. It was a pop song with a little psychedelia. I love it so much I used it in my wedding ceremony. Prince is THE MAN, but the mode (I think that’s how you’d refer to it) that this version is in does nothing for it.

    Well damn. RIP to another orchestrator of the soundtrack of my youth. Dusty Hill is dead at 72.
