Finding anything by Prince on YouTube is damn near impossible, thanks to the notoriously cranky star’s tight-fisted control over his digital presence. But he apparently went too far with a fan-recorded video of him performing Radiohead’s “Creep” at Coachella in 2008, as Thom Yorke himself demanded the clip be put back online after Prince had it taken down.
Prince played ball, even tweeting out the link, and the world is better for it. Interestingly, he rephrases the lyrics so they’re in the second person instead of the first — “you want me to notice when you’re not around” — which may be most Prince thing ever.
