sinead o'connor - nothing compares 2 u
this video is one of my favourite videos of all time. it's so simple, and in this simplicity it somehow finds power to deeply affect the viewer; and this is what makes it brilliant.
some people say that a cover is never better than an original, but i think sinead trumps prince on this one. the audio alone can bring me to tears, but when you add the visual you can be sure that by the time she starts blubbing, i am crying along with her.
it's such a gift to feel so strongly for someone; i'm looking forward to feeling that again one day.
