Prince Covers Radiohead's "Creep" During Coachella Festival Performance

Amazing find from Stereogum of the Purple One covering Radiohead's first and biggest hit from their least artistically-relevant record (arguably). I think Prince could have made a pretty good go at "Thinking About You"--Pablo Honey's introspective, acoustic number about masturbation. After all, it's a subject that Mr. Rogers Nelson knows a thing or two about--but this soulful rendition of the mock self-loathing classic still does the ears good. This might even top his previous dabbling in alt-rock. What's next on Prince's wishlist of the 90s? Perhaps he could do "Sex Type Thing" in the same kind of screeching falsetto that he used for "Kiss". And then, a decade-and-a-half later, Tom Jones can cover it.

On second thought, that sounds like a terrible sequence of events.
