If this were the Waterboys version of Purple Rain I’d be all over it.

Much like the Jedi, it's time for the Prince "Purple Rain" tributes to end. Even Prince said so from beyond the grave.

Vote Cornflake Girl!

I'm not sure what the point of either of these covers is, though the Cornflake Girl cover is less of an insult.

I was kind of on board with the Purple Rain cover until she started getting into it and flailing her arms like a moron. Then basically looking like she was going to cry while singing. I voted for cornflake girl.
