NOTHING COMPARES TO YOU
This song has been called by VH1 as one of the Top 100 Songs of 90’s, for good reason. It’s one of the best made songs lyrically and musically. It’s music is haunting, almost pained, and you could feel the passion behind the lyrics. It talks of an experience we’re all familiar with–the painful memory of goodbye, the love that could have been perfect, and the tragedy of the one that got away.
Written by Prince for the band called The Family in the 1980's, the song only appeared on their self titled album, was not released as a single and received little recognition.
But in 1990, Irish singer Sinead Oconnor recorded her own version and become a worldwide hit. Another amazing rendition of the song comes from the band Stereophonics for the charity of War Child Music (2005).
