Nothing Compares 2 U is the sixth track on The Family's first and only album The Family. Prince wrote seven of the eight songs on the album, but Nothing Compares 2 U is the only track for which Prince takes official credit.

    I love Prince's music usually, and I really wanted to hear his version of his song because I love the one Sinead did, but this doesn't sound like Prince It does sound like a sad Rudolph (the red-nosed)

    I don't know what version this is that came up thanks to YouTube, but I'm not a fan. Doesn't sound like Prince at all and I'm just not feeling it.

    For anyone saying this is a wonderful cover, Prince actually wrote this song. Sinead's version is the cover. I believe that the studio version of this song is on Prince's 1st album, titled "Prince" (early 80s). Check it out! By the way, I love both versions - both artists are amazing and bring their own genius to the song.

    My favourite version is the one he played solo live with Eric Leeds on sax. It's brilliant...I also love the duet he did with Rosie G, never gets old.

    Sinead's version is so superior, I can't believe people think Prince's is better. W.T.F. [2]

    I haven't heard the live version with Rosie. I've only heard a Prince studio version which is much, much better than Sinead's version.
