Prince covering Bonnie Raitt. I have no idea what is going on in the actual video. This was the only version I could find.

There's really nothing odd at all about this cover; it's 100% faithful to the original.  The unusual part is who's involved: members of The Killers, Spoon, Mellowdrone, and the Flaming Lips, and... Weird Al Yankovic.

I think this is my favorite experimental Chris Cornell cover.
