Radio 63, side B, track 6: “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by Sinead O’Connor

Sinead O'Connor - The Emperor's New ClothesOh, Sinead O’Connor, I’m always happy that I decided to embark on this little journey back in time to my radio-taping days, but sometimes I’m REALLY happy I did so.  This song is a perfect example.  Before I started this blog and transferred all my tapes to the internets, the only song I remembered of yours was “Nothing Compares 2 U”.  Which would have been just fine, because that song is awesome and I’ll always love it forever.  But had I not created this blog, I would have forgotten about “Mandinka” and I would have forgotten about this song and I would have forgotten that I absolutely love your music.  Even though these are probably the only three songs I’ve ever actually really heard by you.  But that’s just fine.  I’m not sure I completely know what this song is about.  It sounds like it’s about love and pregnancy and hypocrisy, which sounds like the kinds of things you would sing about.   But the only real important thing here is that for five minutes, I was just sitting here smiling and tapping my foot to your awesomeness, which is all I can ever ask for from any song.

  1. Now you made me pick up ny “I do not want what I haven´t got” album, from which this track is taken. It includes lotsa good songs, and is (if u ask me) Sinead O’Connors best album.
    Recomented tracks: Nothing Compares 2 U, I Am Stretched on Your Grave, Feels so Different – no – Check out the whole album its great!
