Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough is a 1979 song written by Michael Jackson, which first appeared on his album Off The Wall and was released as a single shortly before the album’s release.

A live version of the song performed by Prince and 3rdEyeGirl with Liv Warfield, recorded on 1 June 2014 (2nd show) at Le Zénith, Paris, France, was first aired by the Minnesota public radio station 89.3 The Current on 6 November 2015. The song was part of a 21-minute stream of this show given in Paris.

The whole stream was dubbed Crazy 2 Cool. The video version of Crazy 2 Cool was made avalaible on Tidal the following month (and again in 2021 on YouTube as CRAZY2COOL).

Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough was a regularly played by Prince and his various bands since 2005. Like many other songs by Michael Jackson and/or The Jacksons/The Jackson 5 he has covered live (including Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) and I Want You Back), Prince did not sung the lyrics, and barely the chorus. The lead vocals were sung by either Támar Davis or Shelby J., Elisa Dease and Liv Warfield. The performance included in Crazy 2 Cool is played in a medley with Cool and sung by Liv Warfield who guested with Prince and 3rdEyeGirl during the 2014 Paris shows. The Cool/Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough medley was a regular feature of the 2011-2012 tours.

A full live performance of the song recorded on 25 February 2006 at Orpheum Theatre, Minneapolis, MN, USA was included on the 3121 Radio show compiled by Prince and DJ Rashida in early 2006 and aired posthumously by Sirius XM in May 2020. This 2006 version is sung by Támar Davis, with Prince on guitar and background vocals.

No studio version by Prince is believed to exist.
