Oh definitely! I loved that album so much!! Well I still do obviously. John I Love You, Tiny Grief Song, Scorn Not His Simplicity, A Perfect Indian... so many great songs. And I love the concept album aspect of it!

Let's face it Fire on Babylon is quite possibly one of the most harrowing songs of all time. The lyrics kill me everytime.

And such an evocative and personal video. Again, quite difficult to watch if you understand what she's talking about.

I never knew Success has made a failure of our home was actually a Loretta Lynn cover.

Sooo... no love shown for the Gospel Oak? Fantastic record.

I still think Madonna tapped into Sin's version for her Evita and quite rightly so rather than going the Elaine Paige or *spits* Patti LuPone direction.

Beautiful, but after her incredible works of art, it seemed a bit less interesting.

- he said he didn't like me saying bad words in interviews. So I told him to fuck off."

"He got quite violent. I had to escape out of his house at 5 in the morning. He packed a bigger punch than mine.

Madonna once was asked who she would like to work with. [ This was before any collaborations. JustinT etc ]

To my surprise she said; Sinead. I cant find this interview, but I am sure I read/heard it correctly. as I am a fan of both Sinead and M

that's probably not it but she did mention her favorably here (after some deep digs a couple years earlier):

You seem quite interested in British acts.

She smiles “Well, most of the artists I really like are British. Like… Well, Bjork’s not British but that where she emerged.

She’s an original, completely unique, adorable. I can’t put my finger on what she’s got and that’s probably a good thing. She’s just one of a kind, incredible. I love PJ Harvey, too, I think her lyrics are brilliant. She’s real tortured and I’m drawn to people who are tortured. I’m a huge fan of hers and of Sinead’s. I’m a big fan of all tortured female artists.”

Not for that song but Nellee produced Nothing Compares...

But Acko is right that some sounds were in Debut.

thanks!

Yes I do remember she would like to work with sinead.

that must have been sometime round mid 90s. It would have been great cause sineads voice was still very good at the time. and I would be really interested what the 2 voices together would sound like. Both have angelic qualities but Sineads voice does no vibrato.

I have never even seen them together.

TMZ has the police scanner audio.

SINEAD O'CONNOR

SUICIDE WATCH ON CHICAGO BRIDGES

Cops are on the hunt for Sinead O'Connor after someone in her family told cops she's threatening to kill herself.

Chicago PD got a call from Irish authorities saying Sinead contacted her family an hour ago and said she was suicidal and planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.

We're told cops actually spotted someone who looked like she fit the profile but it wasn't Sinead.

TMZ obtained scanner audio from the PD giving officers the heads up. We're told there's not an active search ... but cops were told to be on the lookout.

Sinead's been struggling with depression lately -- just last month she was reported missing and her friends and family feared suicide -- she was later found at a Chicago hotel.
