Since u been gone

Prince never did release a studio version of “Nothing Compares 2 U”; in 1985, The Family cut the song under Prince’s supervision — Prince, in fact, provided most of the instrumentation himself — and Sinead O’Connor got the hit in 1990. Prince occasionally would perform the song live, though, and his estate turned up a 1984 rehearsal tape, live audio synced with various bits of video, and released it this past week.

I miss this man. A lot.

    How the heck he do all that in those heels? Those gotta be five-inchers. I mean, I know the man was short but ye cats. (And even with them he’s shorter than half his band.)
