CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
NOTHING COMPARES 2 U
“…It’s been 7 hours
& 15 days
since you took your love away...”
Prince penned "Nothing Compares 2 U". It was recorded by the group The Family in 1985. A remake by Sinead O'Connor became the hit version, topping charts in America, the UK, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand in 1990. Her cover was also included on the Irish performer's 'I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got' album.
The song involves a couple that has broken up. Sung from the perspective of the abandoned half of the pair, the lyrics deal with the void left by the partner that has moved on. The protagonist tries all manner of distractions and methods to start over, but cannot stop missing the one that got away.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
