Hi! Everyone & welcome back to my music blog.
RIP SINEAD O CONNOR- It's 1990 & as a child I remember hearing the song & seeing the iconic video for: 'Nothing Compares to You'. It was No.1 in the UK charts. The song & video stood out to me. I like her performance in the video for that song. Another 2 songs that I really liked is when she sang the vocals for the trance song: 'Tears from the Moon (Tiesto in Search of Sunrise Remix)-CONJURE ONE & 'Troy (Push Remix)'. She released 10 albums over the years. Her most successful album; 'I do not want what I haven't got' in 1990.
Sinead was not afraid to speak out. I don't think it's easy to speak out. I admire her for that.
