Please tell me you at least knew that Prince wrote "Nothing Compares 2 U" (I suppose the crap spelling gives it away).

... and "I Feel For You" (Chaka Khan), and "When You Were Mine" (Cyndi Lauper).

although maybe I'm just exposing myself as a child of the 80s, and it's only common knowlege to us old fogeys.
I knew he wrote Nothing Compares 2U but not the other ones.

So excited to see this thread I almost crapped my pants... again.

I'm a major Susanna fan. I even have her unreleased album from 1993-4.

About "Manic Monday", it was written by Prince in 1984 and intended for Appollonia's first album, but Prince kept pulling the best songs off of it to give to other artists (so, when it came out, it tanked). In the case of The Bangles, he was on a flight to Europe (I think) in 1985 when he happened to be sharing a row with Susanna Hoffs. Charmed by her (who wouldn't be?), he offered her group a song, which was "Manic Monday".

Susanna Hoffs has incredibly good taste and is a fine, fine singer. She doesn't go into the upper register of volume very well, but her mid-voice and talk-voice are incredible.

Her duets albums with Matthew Sweet are fantastic -- the first is 1960s' covers, the new one is 1970s' covers.

The Bangles are working on a new album now with Matthew Sweet. Should be great!

Never a big fan of the music, did like Something That You Said, perfect pop song, but Sussanah Hoffs is definately one of the most beautiful women on planet Earth!!!!!

could you possibly replace the singer with a male vocalist?
