Music Monday – Pure Beauty from the Vaults

try to have fun no matter what you do . . . love is everything . . . and go see those musicians you love while you have the chance

Exquisite. This video of Prince in rehearsal brought me to tears. And his version of Nothing Compares 2 U, oh my God . . .

Nothing Compares 2 U
It’s been seven hours and thirteen 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 boy 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
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Songwriters: Prince Rogers Nelson

  1. Hi Holly — thanks for visiting my site, I like your blog too. I live in New Jersey and last summer I heard that SINEAD O’ CONNOR was living at a motel in New Jersey — it was a big story in the news – It turned out that the motel she was living in was only a few blocks away from my house — that really surprised me!

    1. Hi! Thanks for visiting my site as well!

      I remember reading that Sinead was living in a motel in New Jersey just recently. I wonder if you saw Sinead and didn’t realize it. She is so talented.

      I’m originally from a rural area of New Jersey! It’s been a while since I’ve been back east – about 8 years.
