Description:
June 7th is Prince’s Birthday, and even though Prince doesn’t celebrate birthdays, I do, and I will celebrate his birthday as long as I live.

This set’s theme is Prince covers. Prince hates cover songs. So, do I, but I thought I should overcome this dislike by creating a mix around it;) The challenge was to find cover songs of Prince that do not suck.

So, if you ♥ Prince as much as I do, join me for a special edition of No Turn Unstoned.
