Saturday video break: Nothing Compares 2 U

Song #6 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Nothing Compares 2 U”, originally by The Family and covered by Sinead O’Connor. Here’s the original:

Say it with me now: I’ve never heard this version, or of this group, which the Popdose writer says “was a group formed from the ashes of The Time”, not that that helps me. It’s a bit on the cheesy side, but I was totally digging that sax player’s glasses. Here’s Sinead:

A huge hit for a mostly non-commercial artist. But more important than anything I can say about the song or her (far superior) version of it is that Sinead O’Connor was absolutely, positively, 100% right, and we really should have listened to her.
