It's Friday, I'm Not In The Mood To Dance



Although over the past few years I haven't kept up with Prince's music that much I was really  saddened last night and like everybody else completely shocked when I heard the news travelling home. It is fact to say that there was nobody else quite like him and the music he produced in the 80s,  especially was utterly unique. Tragically I think that he was probably far from being a spent force and was capable of changing the direction of music again. Here are my favourite versions of one of his songs.

King Creosote - Nothing Compares To You

Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares To You

KC Rules OK. Great choice.

He was my favourite musician. Really sad about it.

The man was my Bowie. Or rather Bowie was somebody else's Prince. He's above and beyond most people for me. Fantastic singer, songwriter, musician. And the Sexy MF could dance too. Bastard.

Never heard that King Creosote version, absolutely tremendous. By the way, the Joyce Green rockabilly track was very enjoyable
