Eye-catching album art
Artwork: Cover of Sinead O’Connor‘s 10th album
called I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss, released in 2014
The record was originally to be called The Vishnu Room, after the song of the same name on the LP, but was changed, along with its original cover design, shortly before release in support of the Ban Bossy campaign. It was a self-censorship action launched in 2014 by LeanIn.org. The campaign criticizes the use of the word “bossy” to describe assertive girls and women, proposing that the word is stigmatizing and may discourage girls and women from seeking positions of leadership.

SARAH WALK is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter with
a crystal voice balancing between chanteuses Angel Olsen and
Sharon Van Etten.
She recently shared an amazing version of global hit Nothing
Compares 2 U written and recorded by the late great Prince
and made world-famous by Sinead O’Connor back in 1990.
Walk: “I didn’t want to get too inside the other versions that
already existed because I wanted to make sure I approached
it my own way.”
Her version is wholly affecting with an ongoing magnetic piano
touch, a heavy-hearted orchestration, and her goosebumps
voice. Mesmeric rendition!

Today 30 years ago, on 20 March 1990, the wonderful, outspoken, controversial and emotive Irish singer SINEAD O’CONNOR released her second, breakthrough LP ‘I DO
NOT WANT WHAT I HAVEN’T GOT’. Together with her splendid 1994 album Universal Mother the best work she ever accomplished. A highly emotional record filled with heart and soul-touching beauties. and of course, her affecting biggest hit single ever, her cover of Prince of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ which also turned the longplayer into a mega-seller.
Rolling Stone wrote: “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got is less about O’Connor’s ambitions than the cost of those ambitions, and in almost every regard, it is an even better record than her first. The album seems the work of a transformed woman — someone who has put aside much of the anger and confusion that fueled her earlier songs and has found a hard-earned measure of spiritual happiness.” Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

It’s almost three years (17 May 2017) since troubled singer/songwriter and towering voice CHRIS CONNELL decided, due to severe depression problems, to leave this world. A really sad loss. He fronted grunge icons Soundgarden, founded Temple Of The Dog and made a lasting impression as a solo artist.
While surfing on the internet yesterday I came across his spine-tingling, acoustic version
of Prince‘s brilliant love ballad ‘NOTHING COMPARES 2 U’, made famous, worldwide, by Sinead O’Connor. His utterly gripping vox and the weeping cello bring you to tears. Get goosebumps right here…
Performed for SiriusXM – a radio company headquartered in New York City
