I've been listening to a ton of XM Radio's "First Wave" station. Just the flavor of the month. This song comes on, and I realize I had totally forgotten the same guy that has pretty much scored every popular film since 1989 made a few pretty catchy alt rock tunes.
Came across this in my FB feed this week. Old school flow ala Latifah and done oh so well:
Prince's estate released the first-ever "official" recording of Nothing Compares 2 U today
Fine I'll be the one to post it.
Some good threads to read afterward:
Saw Depeche Mode in Tulsa last night. (The best recording of this I could find was from San Antonio 2 days earlier but the performance is identical).
This song was new to me, seemed a bit underwhelming at first but about half-way it started building in intensity to the point where you can just FEEL the entire crowd pulsating with the beat whether they want to or not and it was fucking amazing.
All around incredible show. If you ever get the chance to see them do it. Still a few shows left in North America this tour and plenty if you're in Europe. Check it out http://www.depechemode.com/tour
Oh shit kids
New album soon AND they're touring with the Smashing Pumpkins! August 5th for fans in Detroit.
