Prince < Joan Jett < Tommy James

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]
