How Many Men Does It Take To Cover An Oft Nude Prince??!?
Apparently, it takes FIVE.
Just don't ask me how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop. As a professional Tootsie Roll Pop licker I just can't divulge that kind of information for free without damaging my career.
I know that we're only 8 months into the year but I'm going to go ahead and declare the alt-rock geniuses of Incubus the winner of my 2009 Raspberry Beret award for their magnificent Prince-covering work in the guitar-drenched ditty, Let's Go Crazy.
Good job, guys! So tonight we gonna party like it's 2009!
Let me pause a moment as I shower them with a deluge of Purple Rain.....
I don't want to be presumptuous, but barring the release of a seductive version of Prince's classic Erotic City as performed by squeaky clean teen David Archuleta, Incubus will easily remain this year's grand champion with little to no competition.
Admittedly though, the thought of the Mormon Tabernacle choir covering Little Red Corvette amuses me greatly. I can envision them clad in their pristine white robes singing the chorus while dancing The Steering Wheel.
Maybe Metallica will take on I Would Die 4 U?
And Ozzy Osbourne can mumble his way through an updated working of When Doves Cry......of course, he is the guy that bit the head off a dove live in concert. I bet prior to his Marie Antoinette maneuver, he yelled at the whimpering dove, "Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about!"
Susan Boyle and her new found fame would be a perfect fit for Prince's The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, don't you think?
Anyways, congratulations go out to Incubus for their Princely accomplishments! Each band member will be awarded their very own honorary Raspberry Beret.....why yes, it is the kind you find in a second-hand store.!
INCUBUS- LET'S GO CRAZY!!!
