All This Talk about Prince…

Got me nostalgic for his music! Major, major Prince fan here! I think I once told y’all how, if Michael Jackson was my mother-approved boyfriend, Prince was the one I had to hide underneath the bed! 😛

Anyways, even though he’s gone down the religiously devout route as a Jehovah’s Witness, I think there were signs in his earlier music (even at his sexiest) that indicated he was really caught up in theology.

That’s the beauty of complicated artists, which is all we here want for David: to be complex.

Anywho, I do remember David tweeting about having the best time at a Prince concert. So, naturally, I’m wondering which of Prince’s songs he should cover  (and which he’d feel comfortable singing).

Here are some of my choices:

Purple Rain:

Of course, Fantasia does a kick-butt rendition by “taking it to church” (she’s such a Patti Labelle/Mary J. Blige mixtape isn’t she?) so I think David could come close (or even surpass!).

Mountains:

Diamonds and Pearls:

Nothing Compares 2 U:

Sinead O’Connor did a famous rendition, and made the song her own, so imagine The Voice on this one (and subsequently making it his own).   🙂

Adore:

OK, so this is a serious BABY-MAKING song right here (Ahem!), but we all know Ballad Boy can handle it, right? 😉

So, what say you, SD readers? Please take my latest poll! 😀
