crooked_fingers.jpg“When You Were Mine” is one of my favourite Prince songs. It’s one of those tunes that you can dance to, but which has sad lyrics. I love that dichotomy, even if it does mean I tend to end up shaking my thang while bawling my stupid eyes out. Bouncers rarely allow me to explain.
When Crooked Fingers covered the track, they stripped the track back to some plucked banjo, a wounded voice and not much else. If you have a heart, it will probably be a big melted goo of bloody muscle lying in your stomach by the time you’ve listened to this. In a good way!
