One group we haven't heard from, though I'm certain they would love to perform an elaborate rendition of "Darling Nikki" could they afford studio time, or, you know, comprehend and speak a human language: the entirety of the animal kingdom.
Why might they be mega-fans, you ask? Prince was a devoted vegan, a fact that did not go unnoticed by PETA, the national animal rights organization. That group celebrated its 20th anniversary in 1999 with a pretty damn good gift -- a song about veganism, written, recorded and donated by Prince himself. To mark what would have been the musician's 58th birthday next week, PETA has released a free stream of the track, "Animal Kingdom," on its website.
Here's a YouTube version featuring a lovely montage of animals, in case that's more your thing.
