Throwback: George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic-Erotic City
George Clinton and his combined Parliament-Funkadelic band covered Prince’s “Erotic City” for the PCU soundtrack. The movie was a forgettable comedy about college life but Clinton’s Prince cover was worth the cost of the soundtrack. The irony of the song is the fact that Prince wrote it after seeing Clinton perform at the Beverly Theater in Los Angeles in 1983, something he shared when he inducted Parliament-Funkadelic into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Clinton’s version was a straightforward cover with a few lyric changes, the distinct vocals of Belita Wood and an additional chorus.
