There are a few standout voices that came out of the 90s and Chris Cornell’s is right at the top of the list. It’s a raw, emotional voice. It’s a voice that sounds like it has seen some shit. It’s also a voice that just took Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U” and did it justice. So much fucking justice.
Cornell added some of his thoughts about Prince to the song he uploaded on Youtube.
Prince’s music is the soundtrack to the soulful and beautiful universe he created, and we have all been privileged to be part of that amazing world.
I performed his song “Nothing Compares 2 U” for the first time a couple months ago. It has a timeless relevance for me and practically everyone I know.
Sadly, now his own lyrics in this song could not be more relevant than at this moment, and I sing them now in reverence as I pay tribute to this unequaled artist who has given all of our lives so much inspiration and made the world so much more interesting.
We will miss you Prince!!!
Going to end my day by listening to this song 1000 more times and then probably make a baby, because this cover is that fucking fantastic.
Good job, good effort, Chris.
