The Artist Formerly Known As Miss Piggie

Everyone loves a cover and most people like Prince. Most people like Tegan and Sara. Most people like Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, they just don't know it yet. Prince's "When You Were Mine," a song mostly about break-up, is pretty well-known, and when people cover it it usually equals success. To me at least...

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone (ft Caralee McElroy)-When You Were Mine

Tegan and Sara-When You Were Mine

I wish NBC weren't jerks about Saturday Night Live skits on YouTube, otherwise I'd like to the hilarious Prince Show that's been on a couple times, with Fred Armisen as Prince and Maya Rudolph as Beyonce. Oh hilariousness. Instead, here's Prince on Muppets Tonight.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Added Princey goodnees: head over to Ryspace and download My Brightest Diamond covering "When Doves Cry." Now!

casiotone is awsome (he used to work at a theatre here in sf where i live...he let me into the R movies, ha) and Prince is ridiculous, that SNL episode is so funny i just saw it a few nights ago, awsome!

I learned this one off of Cyndi Lauper's version...on LP. A LOT of years ago. Didn't even know it was a Prince song.

even better (at least IMO) than the Muppets appearance is Prince absolutely SLAYING "While My Guiatr Gently Weeps" at the Rock & Rool Hall of Fame Indiuction Ceremony a couple years back.. He hooped on stage with George Harrison's son and a slew of rock stars to pay homage to George as part of his induction. Well, if you haven't seen it yet, click the link below and enjoy one of the most stellar displays of guitar mastery around....just watch Petty's face as Prince just continues to obliterate that shit.....UNREAL!
