Prince’s 3rd #1 hit- he would have 5 in his career. Rolling Stone would have it ranked at #464 on their 500 Greatest Songs Ever list. I also like the Tom Jones cover from 1988.
raw sexuality. nobody and i mean nobody does it better than Prince. and a fricking great songwriter/musician on top of it!
p.s. Tom Jones does have the voice and the moves though lol
when i think of that song- it’s Tom Jones voice I hear.
I will always prefer Tom Jones’ version to the original.
This is one of my favorite songs ever. The Tom Jones version is great too. Kind of hard to believe that Tom Jones was the same age I am now when he recorded the song. I don’t have moves like that.
Tom Jones…I just can’t.
