Prince < Joan Jett < Tommy James

Posted April 24th, 2009 by eric

Prince’s take on the Tommy James and the Shondells classic “Crimson and Clover” is kind of watery and distant. It seems to drag a bit, even on the rocking parts. And the video is a new-age hippie’s wet dream. Sadly, this version doesn’t touch Joan Jett’s killer cover from 1981’s I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll. [via Stereogum]
