Nothing Compares 2U
Ok - let's get the elephant in the room out of the way before we crack on.
Whereas the late great Prince was obviously a musical genius he was pretty rubbish at writing and spelling properly.
Anyone under 40 can probably see nothing wrong with the title of this post but using text abbreviations instead of proper words for both writing and texting is just plain wrong.
His version of the song is the live version with Rosie Gaines from the Ultimate Prince compilation.
I'm sure that his Royal Purpleness would acknowledge that it shades into insignificance when compared to the other two versions featured.
The King just about shades it if only for the use of proper spelling.
