I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

NOTHING COMPARES 2 U




"Nothing Compares 2 U" is a song written in the 1980s by Prince for The Family. In 1990, a cover version by Sinéad O'Connor became a number-one hit in many countries, charting in the U.S., UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, and Germany. The subject of the song is actress Susannah Melvoin.[1] Mainly shot in Paris, the video for "Nothing Compares 2 U" was directed by John Maybury. The clip consists almost solely of a closeup on O'Connor's face as she sings the song's lyrics. Toward the end of the video, two tears roll down her face, one per cheek. O'Connor stated on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s that it was caused by the lyric "All the flowers that you planted, Mama in the back yard/All died when you went away", because she had a very complex relationship with her late mother, who she claims abused her. The clip won Best Video at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards – the first video by a female artist to win in this category. Though we hear many songs, few stay with us…creating an impact. Whenever this song is being played, one CANNOT help but feel bonded to it somehow because makes us offer our whole selves to the feelings it brings to the surface. And when ones attention N’ energy are all focused in the moment, one gets to LIVE!
