One of the great songs of world pop of the last decades, in the unknown original version of the purple man touched by the ray of God.
Prince recorded this track in 1984 but instead of using it he sent it to Paul Peterson of the band The Family, which included it in his debut album, which was released on Prince's own label. Without much glory, it went unnoticed, until years later the song would be resurrected by Sinead O'Connor. Prince played the song sometimes in concerts, but to date his recording had never been heard publicly. Warner Bros released a few days ago this "Nothing Compares 2 U" video, written, performed, produced and arranged by Prince in the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse. Fine dynamite For broken hearts and ecstatic hearts. Purple clouds and electrifying romance.
Interestingly, Prince did not like the version of Sinead O'Connor and although he produced many royalties, he, who was a genuine artist, said (they say) that it was not money. Actually, he didn't like to cover his music.
