I’m not sure this video will work because it’s on Facebook, but Mike Young was at Whole Foods Alewife tonight, where they have karaoke(?) and Amanda Palmer was there and sang Let’s Go Crazy by Prince. Cambridge is weird. She nailed it.
I guess Prince writes a lot of songs, but I was still surprised to find out he wrote Nothing Compares 2 U, made famous by Sinead O’Connor, and also Manic Monday made famous by The Bangles.
The other surprise from this is that the woman from 4NonBlondes wrote Pink’s entire album.
My favorite of these all time is that Young MC wrote most of Tone Loc’s album, including Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina, but that’s probably just because I love Young MC.
