Couldn't remember Nothing Compares 2 U. Oops.

Nothing Compares 2 U was originally done by Prince and the Family. While it may be best known as O'Connor's song most famous song, it's a cover.

That was probably just a demo? Sinead's version cannot be said to be a cover, as Prince wrote it specifically for her.
level 80
Mar 3, 2017
Wrong. Original release by Prince and the Family was in 1985 although it was never released as a single. OConnors version was released in 1990. Hard to write a song for someone you had never met. In fact after she released the album and made it big, the first time Prince met her, he asked why she cursed so much in public and she told him to "eff off", according to her.
