I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got by Sinead O'Connor

I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got by Sinead O'Connor

Favorite song on the album ... of course, it's "Nothing Compares 2 U" and no one sings it like Sinead. Beautiful vocals that stand the test of time. Before Sinead O'Connor became conservative America's most reviled musician when she ripped up a picture of the Pope on TV and refused to perform live at a New Jersey venue following "The Star Spangled Banner," she vocally supported the IRA at home in Ireland and generally roused the rabble. Indeed, she's one female pop star who's truly earned her army boots. Though her once meteoric musical career has suffered due to her outspokenness, the powerful voice and presence found on her second album is beyond reproach. Best known as the source of O'Connor's breakthrough cover of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U," this is a moving, intensely passionate work full of dark beauty and longing, constructed with a fierce independence and a taste for the unique. This undeniably pop album (albeit with modern-rock and folk elements) has more than held up through the years.

  • To be honest, I had almost forgotten about Beirut. I'm not really sure how because this was one of my favorite albums of '06 and he is completely amazing. Indie folk, pop lovers will all appreciate this one.

Then I realized when this album came out in '92 I was 14 and too young to appreciate it. As I got older, the R.E.M. that was blaring in my ears were songs like Losing My Religion (which I still don't like). Now that I'm older I can revisit this album and truly appreciate it for songs like: Sweetness Follows Star Me Kitten Try Not to Breathe I do like Everybody Hurts but unfortunately its beaten over our heads, ears, and eyes. Thank MTV. Great album all around.

Ok, so in the 70's, a music teacher in the Langley School district decided to have a group of his young students cover some contemporary songs. He recorded these sessions and what you have is pure magic! The kids cover of Desperado will melt your heart! I didn't think David Bowie's Space Oddity could get any weirder until I heard it sung by a group of 7 years olds. This is definitely worth listening to. Go to iTunes and listen to Desperado to get a sampling of this oddity.
