A solo piano version of “Nothing Compares 2 U“, by NYC area based pianist/recording artist, Susan Tahmoosh. This single is inspired by two late, great, iconic artists: Sinéad O’Connor, who recorded the song in 1990, & Prince Roger’s Nelson, who wrote & recorded a demo for this song in 1984. (Cover song clearance & licensing obtained via Easy Song Licensing.)
Laid-back & soothing, “Nothing Compares 2 U” is a sentimental instrumental nod to 90’s nostalgia. Within the first hypnotic measures, Susan Tahmoosh gently lulls you into a relaxed yet reminiscent state, in this classical pop cover of the 90’s most well-known breakup ballad.
With it’s delicate solo & vulnerably expressive melody, this song creates a gentle duality of listening desires: enjoy the song as soft background music, or sing along (on repeat) about all the flowers in the backyard.
