Prince performs at Day 2 of the Coachella Music And Arts Festival on April 26, 2008 at Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California.

Including plenty of his hits, plus covers ranging of Radiohead, Santana, the B-52s, Sarah McLachlan, the Beatles and more.

In the wake of Prince's unexpected death on Thursday, many are looking back and fondly remembering some of the musical genius' most iconic performances.

One more recent show that has come up frequently is his 2008 headlining set at Coachella -- a rare festival appearance for His Purpleness. 

The Indio-rocking set will surely go down as one of Coachella's greatest moments, with Prince showing off a selection of his own personal recording catalog and songs he wrote for others (the Time and Sheila E. among them), as well as a wide array of covers that ranged from Santana to the B-52s, Sarah McLachlan, the Beatles and more.

The set also included his cover of Radiohead's "Creep," which he recently gave his rare permission to live online. (See the full set list below.)

Now that entire set has been uploaded to Soundcloud and acts as a true testament to Prince's transcendent passion and power as a performer. Listen to it here in two parts. Behold:
