View Full Version : A Bevy Of Prince Covers

07-02-2008, 01:49 PM
Adellethegreat's recent experience (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3894)with her cover "Manic Monday" revealed the fact that the fartist er, artist, known as Prince doesn't allow covers of his masterpieces.

May I suggest that the fine UU members who post videos on YT deluge the Youtube web site with covers of Prince's songs? I mean, in the vein of my Bangles "Egyptian" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5t0QdB_Oc8&watch_response) video and Deach's sublime cover of "Hazy Shade" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvcUiImPVzk&watch_response).

I'd like to see what exactly would be removed from YT - What if the title of the video was "Cover of Prince's "Kiss"" but the actual song in the video was something else? What if the video had a photo of Prince? What if the words were by Prince but set to another melody? Or "You are my sunshine" sung to the tune of "Darling Nicki"? (I don't know if that would actually work.)

What do you think? I'll do one tomorrow. What will you do? The bonus part of this is that you don't have to have actual musical skills to do one of these videos.

Wouldn't it be great to see this become viral? And that everybody on YT do a Prince video? How much would YT tolerate? or Prince? or Universal?

Ideas? comments?

Now that's what I'm talkin bout!!

Uki- you are the freaking man... this is exactly the sort of thing I was thinking about! I posted in the other thread about doing parodies of his songs- set to his tune but with new lyrics- Monetary Gain instead of Purple Rain, etc.

If I had released an album with this song on it- okay, fine- be pissed at me, Prince. But this is just ridiculous. By the end of all this- he shall rue the day.... rue, I tell you!

Funny thing is, I could have done a good cover of this one.... well, as good as the song's lousiness would have allowed...

However...

This is not your average cover.

It's a piece of garbage.

However, I think it does the trick.


Only potential problem that I'm seeing is youtube staff getting ticked off and going trigger happy with their computer mice on the delete buttons for a certain group of youtubers... I really hope that that doesn't happen.


Oh, by the way: this song will most likely be removed by me within a week, as I don't feel like being humiliated further than that.

Ok, Dimly lit, poorly sung and played parody is uploading. Since I have a while to wait as it uploads, I might as well tell ya about it, and what I've learned.

1) Its a parody of Nothing Compares 2 you. Apparantly, Prince and Sinead came to fisticuffs over this song. (or, in Sinead's side of it, spiticuffs... look ma, new word)

2) I've come to the conclusion we need more lighting in my apartment... and maybe a merry-made... or a desire to post videos at some time other than 2 am.

3) I finally figured out how to play the 'B' chord shape. Woot. Thank you Adele!

4) I cannot sing worth a damn. I fear this will never change. I will also say, I couldnt find my tushie pants.... then again, me in those pants would scare people away instead of causing them to join the cause.

Thanks guys!

Aside from that... My vid's going to be a reply to Adelethegreat's video.

I still think a massive RicRoll of the idiots paid to hunt down YouTube videos would be funnier. You put the a song title and keywords that they search for, and you even start as if you're gonna sing it. Maybe play a couple of bars. But then start "You're no stranger to looooooove..." After they go through a few hundred of those things, perhaps they'll get the message. ;)

another question...just to test out the waters...

would a video with a title "Prince 1999 cover" but not a singing video also suffice to see if they strip the audio?

or should i make a vide call Prince 1999 cover and have the music in the background? because that would defintely violate some copyright...

this is also in addition to my purple rain cover attempt that i will produce.

FIGHT THE POWER!!!

Well that didn't last very long. It's already down. I wonder what would happen if you bought a performance license for the song. Years ago the Supreme Court ruled that an artist cannot prevent someone from buying a performance license and preforming their songs. You know I like Prince's early music, and I was amazed to hear a bunch of bootlegs of his live performances, but I have to say, he's a real prick. At this point he'll never get a red cent out of my wallet.

If we were to do this as a protest, it would make sense for lots of people to record the songs/videos and then post them en masse on one day. Like say early September. If we coordinated we could probably arrange to cover every song on one of his albums, or do an anti-tribute spoof album.

Let's see how long it stays audible....:uhoh:

From what I can tell thus far- it's the keywords & title that get ya in trouble, not the audio itself... for now. All the videos that have been pulled that we've put up have had Prince titles... even the one hotnanas put up that didn't actually have a Prince song played in it- just the title claiming it did, got pulled. And as far as I understand the laws on all this, Cashews post was technically her own song since she rewrote the lyrics- and should have been allowed to stay posted... but she gave it a Prince title & now it's gone.

My 'Makin Money' song should be able to stay up... and just to be safe(r) I didn't put Prince in the keywords or title... same as Uki has done here with his vid. Let's see how long they last. I can't believe that Youtube would pay someone to sit & watch every video just to make sure it doesn't secretly contain a Prince song. Although... Prince might be crazy enough to hire someone to do that...

I changed the password. Having it displayed out in the public probably isn't a good idea. If you want the password, send me a PM.

Working on my parody now.

Considering that I actually like some of Prince's songs, this is especially galling.

--Cashew

Hey, maybe you could post your parody, we could all learn it, post a cover of it, and then you can sue youtube to have them removed! if you win, then you can buy a new uke for everyone who posted the covers... ;)

Of course more likely is that we'll all get our covers of your parody taken off youtube and you would be banned... :(

Well.... I made a cover, which i will post titled "A Noncomparative study of a diametrically opposed person." when I was away for the 4th.
:)

and, for Adelle, my parody (which did suck, honestly)

Its been several hours and quite a few days
Since Prince took his songs away
I sleep all night and YouTube all day
isin't that the normal way?

Since they've been gone, We'll do whatever we want,
We can post what we choose.
I can post songs without sound on but
Nothing compares to fair use redo's!

Nothing compares, Nothing compares to Redo's!

It hasnt been lonely without you here.
I've met many new friends
Nothing can stop us from galling, tell me
Princy, Where did we go wrong?

I could put my arms around every Youtuber I see
They only remind me to dislike you!

I went to the internet and guess what they told me, guess what they told me
Prince what you do makes you a fool
You're such a foool because,
Nothing compares, nothing compares to you, you fool!

All the albums that i bought in the 80's
All got put very far away!
I know to you listening will be hard,
but I'm willing to say it one more time
In case you didnt get it the first time!

Nothing compares, Nothing compares to you you fool!
By the way, Sinead did it better. Power to the people! Rock on! (insert rock hand here.):rock:
