  • 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.
  • Nobody compares to the Purple one !
  • I love Prince version of this song!!!! [2]
  • 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.
  • and yet that sounds like the definition of Rosie Gaines on this
  • 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.
  • I have always played this version that I sometimes forget Sinead O'Connor even recorded it. Prince & Rosie Gaines are unbeatable on their version. It's so soulful.
