Prince wrote Manic Monday and Nothing Compares 2 U

I guess Prince writes a lot of songs, but I was still surprised to find out he wrote Nothing Compares 2 U, made famous by Sinead O’Connor, and also Manic Monday made famous by The Bangles.

The other surprise from this is that the woman from 4NonBlondes wrote Pink’s entire album.

My favorite of these all time is that Young MC wrote most of Tone Loc’s album, including Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina, but that’s probably just because I love Young MC.

    Um, Aaron? How do I ask this nicely…

    Just how old are you, anyway?

    When both songs came out – and I remember this in both cases – much was made of the fact that Hoffs and O’Connor were singing His Purple Badness’s songs.

    Then again, I’m 46.

  2. I think the bigger takeaway is, who thought Prince could be any cooler?

    I think this post needs to be expanded into a more comprehensive list of ‘that person wrote that?!’
