Sinead O’Connor | Nothing Compares 2 U

Raye’s Outdoors Mix

Much has been said about Miley Cyrus and her ‘homage’ to this music video in her song ‘Wrecking Ball’. Personally there’s something much more striking about the original music video for this song: the stark black background with Sinead looking translucent with her shaved head and the cold soft tones. It’s funny because my mum would go on about how Sinead and Demi Moore are the only two ladies who managed to pull off the shaved head look.

And imagine my surprise when I later found out this is actually a Prince song! Though like many covers, this version has totally eclipsed the original and what she’ll be forever known for.
