Nothing Compares 2 U

I could put my arms around every girl I see/ But they'd only remind me of you

Michael Howe (l’arxivista que treballa el llegat de Prince) ha trobat una versió inèdita del 1984 d’una de les cançons més reconegudes del cantant de Minnesota (7 de juny del 1958 – 21 d’abril del 2016), Nothing Compares 2 U. El músic la va crear el 1980 per Susannah Melvoin, i va ser popularitzada per Sinead O’Connor una dècada més tard. Ara, 34 anys després, l’escoltem acompanyada d’un vídeo que conté imatges, també inèdites, d’un assaig de l’estiu del 1984 a Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse (el mateix magatzem on es va gravar la cançó), on veiem Prince & The Revolution practicant una coreografia. 


It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

It’s been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong

I could put my arms around every girl I see
But they’d only remind me of you
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me?
Guess what he told me?
He said girl you better try to have fun 
No matter what you do, but he’s a fool

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

All the flowers that you planted mama in the back yard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
But I’m willing to give it another try

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
