Great Remake (Melisa's) but not quite on Prince's original to me, for some reason it sounds different/though excellent from the original?????
I equate her version to the Simply Red's remake of "If You Don't Know Me", great, very good but not better than the original.
I say Lutha's remakes: "Going In Circles", "I Who Have Nothing" (w Martha Wash), "If This World Were Mine" (w Cheryl), "Superstar", and "Think I'm Going Outta Of My Head", are BETTER than the originals?
Same with Chaka's "I Feel For You",
GAP Band's, "Goin In Circles" (equal to the original)
But the best Remake is Al Green's "How Can You Mend,..." of the Bee Gee's original.
Aretha's "Respect" is up there too.
so is George Michael's, "I Can't Make You Love Me".
