I was just thinking the other day that I would have loved to hear Prince sing "A Change is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke. Just thinking about it gives me chills.

He played that a LOT during the 3121 period.

Virtual Reality - Jamiroquai
Love Is Stronger Than Pride - Sade
Human Nature - MJ
Piano & microphone version of Bennie and the Jets by Elton John
& maybe rock out and give us an amazing guitar solo to Kashmir & All My Love by Led Zeppelin

Those would be amazingly interesting interpretations by the Purple one.

Didn't Mean To Turn You On.

It's practically a Prince song already.

Would love to hear studio versions of Sweet Thing and Creep.

I was on my way to work this morning and Joe Cocker came on singing "Feelin' Alright" and I thought, "Prince would've killed that song."

Sex And Candy - Marcy Playground

Stop Draggin' My Heart Around - Puddle Of Mudd

I See The Want To In Your Eyes - Conway Twitty

Livin' On A Prayer - Bon Jovi

Champagne Supernova - Oasis

Who Will Save Your Soul - Jewel (I think his version would TRUMP her version thoroughly.)

Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve

I think he would do ANY slow Nirvana song justice.

Under The Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Prince should RE-DO the Celebrity Skin album by Hole. (Courtney Love).

^

I just KNOW this would be wonderous! <3

eek I like to think that Conway was country music's version of Prince when it came to singing songs that made women swoon! I could imagine Prince doing any of his songs like "Tight Fittin' Jeans" "Love To Lay You Down" "You've Never Been This Far Before" and so many others

He is such a attractive man. I'm no country buff but I sure do like Conway Twitty's music. Its great! Prince could do that song some justice!
