Songs covered by prince

Out of the handful of songs prince covered by other artist my favorite has always been "just my imagination" anyone song in particular that stands out for anyone else as a fan?

Thanks for starting this thread.

I didn't know that Prince covered that song, but now that I know about it I'll have to listen to it.

I could listen to his rendition of Just My Imagination over and over and over. It's sublime. I also love A Case Of You, Creep,One of Us, Waiting In Vain

You don't have the "Small Club" CD? That's essential listening for any Prince fan. nod

Handful? He covered a LOT. Seen here: http://prince.org/msg/7/67698

It's had to pick a favorite, but "A Case of U" is up there, the 1983 version, not the other one. I liked "One Of Us", too. Small Club stuff was good.

Are we talking an official cover on an album or stuff he did at live shows too? If the latter is included then Stratus would probably be my #1. I also love I Never Loved a Man (The Way That I Love You), Tower of Power's What is Hip, Love Changes and Baby Love from Mothers Finest. And I know this isn't really a cover but I loved anytime he played Sweet Thing (with or without Chaka).

HA! That was one of the oddest things he pulled out for a set list.

Case of you--my absolute favorite.

Live: the whole of the moon. Some folks have accused him as coming off egotistical in that song. Maybe he does but to me it works because it seems to have been turned into a song about black pride..the line 'you lied and you called me a coon' but i saw the whole of the moon.,,,WOW

Betcha By Golly Wow...his version is beautiful, as is the video. The video is beautifully sad (because of the circumstances with Mayte and their family around that time).
