Written by Shatterdaymorn. Nothing Compares 2 U. Play track. Love this track. Nothing Compares 2 U is a song written in mid-1981 by Prince for The Family. In 1990, Irish singer Sinéad O'Connor re-recorded the track and included it on her second album I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, bringing the song to worldwide prominence. The subject of the song is actress Susannah Melvoin. The song's music video was a hit on MTV. O'Connor released her first album three years earlier. It got a lot of play on college radio, earning her a small, but devoted fan base. This song thrust her into the spotlight, and the attention had some deleterious effects on the singer. Nothing Compares 2 U earned her a Grammy for Best Alternative Performance, but she refused to appear on the awards show in protest of materialism in the music industry. Director John Maybury shot a lot of footage around Paris for the video, but ended up using just a simple tight shot of O'Connor singing. Sinéad O'Connor announced in March 2015 that she will not be performing this song anymore. In 1990, Sinead OConnor was at No. 1 on the UK singles chart with Nothing Compares 2 U. Her version of the Prince-penned song was also a No. 1 hit in 18 other countries. A month later the Irish singers second album, I Do Not Want What I Havent Got, was in pole position on the UK charts as well as 13 other countries including six weeks at No. 1 in the US - going on to become the third best-selling single of 1990. For a moment there, Sinead could do no wrong. Every time you turned on MTV, there she was, staring into your living room, the big close-up of her face with a tear rolling down it. Recording Sinéad OConnors breakthrough hit was easy in some ways, but difficult in others - for example, all compression was forbidden. That project went really well, so when Nellee started working with Sinéad O'Connor on 'Nothing Compares 2 U', he asked me to join them and again do the arranging and programming. The engineer was a female named Arabella Rodriguez, who had also recorded and mixed Soul II Soul. At first, we did pre-production at Nellee's house, where I did most of my work using an Atari with Notator software and an Akai S1100 sampler. Nothing Compares 2 Sinéad. By Sarah Larson. March 19, 2015. Save this story for later. Prince wrote Nothing Compares 2 U in 1984, for his side-project band the Family. OConnor released her cover in 1990, on her album I Do Not Want What I Havent Got, and the single was many peoples first introduction to OConnor and her work, often via its mesmerizing video. Watching OConnor sing to the camera, in closeup, her close-cropped hair and pale face stark against a black background, could remind you of Jeanne Falconetti in Carl Theodor Dreyers The Passion of Joan of Arc -the youth, the beautiful face and the close-cropped hair, the pain, the purity of emotion.
