    Prince didn't write that, a guy from the Hooters did.

    Prince does covers all the time and always credits the original writers in cool ways. Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell.. many more.

    I'm not afraid to admit it... I like almost all of those songs (in my pre-alternative days ;) ). I just hate that Prince blocks them on You Tube. He needs to get with the times.

    It's not :quote:The Best:quote: by most standards, but "Nasty Girl" is definitely mah faaaaaaavorite.... I wish that little jig would get over his neurosis and religious bullshit and just fuckin' funk out again.... I also think he's terribly under-recognized as a guitarist....
