Sinéad O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2U

Many people don't know that "Nothing Compares to You" was written for his mother, Sinead. How absurd is that? "Nothing Compares 2 U" was written by Prince exclusively for his guitarist Wendy Melvoin's twin sister, Susanna.

A new group called "Family" was created on this topic. In the summer of 1984, a few weeks after the release of Purple Rain, Prince visited Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman's Twin Cities apartment in downtown St. Pablo, Minneapolis. At the time, they were the guitarist and keyboardist for The Revolution. Both lesbians lived with Wendy's twin sister, Susan (19), who dreamed of being a singer.

Prince promised to hear demos from "little" Melvoin, who worked as a receptionist at Geffen Records. Prince listened attentively to Susana's demo of Aretha Franklin's "Until You Come Back to Me" in the kitchen of her small apartment. It was something he had heard before from Quincy Jones, his first mentor. Quincy Jones was good friends with Melvoin's father, Michael Melvoin, a great jazz pianist, arranger and director. After the audition, Prince looked at Susanna and said, "Do you want to be part of the family?" saying. Susana couldn't sleep all night.

Wendy believed that her twin sister had a wonderful and passionate influence on the prince. The prince continued to harass her for the next few weeks. He has already split from Apollonia Cotero, who was "hit" by Van Halen singer David Lee Roth. The prince fell in love with the young Susanna. But he had to think of something to get over it. And he created a group called "Family." Susanna said years later that she chose the name because the prince was like family. Wendy and Lisa, Susan and Prince himself. There are four of ours. family.
