Odd Reasoning with my vote in this matchup.

I don't really care for either of these artists (not my personal taste in
styles I guess), but we're voting for SONGS rather than artists here.
I always loved the song NOTHING COMPARES TO YOU. Really cool
"AMBIENCE" to it.... BUT, I could never listen to it much because of
O'Connor's voice or Attitude.

Devo had a "cult" following of fans and WHIP IT became their signature
number for both the song and the video. Myself, I never cared for either.

I voted for Whip It Here.
O'Connor (for me) made a song not worth listening to even though the
song itself was good. I'm basically tossing a coin and it came up HEADS.

I really wish another artist had done NOTHING COMPARES TO YOU.
Sarah McGlacian, Jewel, or group like Celtic Woman.....someone with a much more
beautiful voice that would have made this song more appealing to me.

FWIW "Nothing Compares 2 U" was written by Prince (as you can tell by the cute abbreviations), so maybe if his version had hit the charts ?

Anyway, this is also a tossup for me as I actually like both songs, for very different reasons. Hate to have to exclude one or the other, but the nerd in me must go with Devo

Wow currently 9-0 for Devo. Had I known I would have given Sinead a courtesy vote

I learned something new today !

That would explain the "Ambience" I mentioned in my post earlier and
probably the reason I liked the song itself, but never could warm up to it
because of the artist that released it. ... Even though I'm not a "BIG" fan
of Price either, the guy wrote some kick ass songs that I really liked.
The guy had a way with Lyrics and Music. I wish he had recorded and released
this song rather than O'Connor. It's a song I'd love to have liked more than
I did.

Prince performing it live with Mary J. Blige:

and live with Rosie Gaines (I prefer this version):

I still find Sinead's version to be very haunting, in a good way. I'd listen to that over these Prince performances.

I'm a pretty serious Devo fan, but I'm voting for Nothing Compares 2 U because I think it is one of the best songs/performances/videos of my lifetime. Sinead's version is perfect and far better than any of Prince's versions. Although, if you ever get a chance to hear the original done by Prince's side project The Family, you are in for a treat. It's really cool and weird.

Anyway, seems like people were just rubbed the wrong way by Sinead. Too bad, because both the video for this song (and the authentic tear down her cheek during the last verse) and her performance on the recording were heavy and inspired during a time when pop music was generally lifeless. Well worth my vote.

Agreed. I think her voice is perfectly fine for the song and that the arrangement on her version is tons better than Prince's or even The Family's. Took some doing but I finally found that one:

Went with Nothing Compares 2U.

While Whip it is vary catchy. Nothing Compares is a better song. And I have always kind of liked it.
