Chris Cornell’s Passionate Performance Of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’

“It’s been so lonely without you here”

Music fans around the world were shocked Thursday to learn of the death of singer-songwriter, Chris Cornell, 52. His body was found in a Detroit, Michigan, hotel room, and although no cause of death has been announced, it’s being investigated as an apparent suicide. Cornell is best known as the lead singer of Soundgarden, a band that combined the crunch of ’70s metal with early ’90s grunge. Later, he would find success with Audioslave, a supergroup featuring former members of Rage Against the Machine.


Cornell’s four-octave vocal range made him one of the most distinct and soulful singers of the past 30 years. He’s ninth on Rolling Stones list of the greatest lead singers of all time. Cornell was best known for his signature howl on Soundgarden hits such as “Black Hole Sun” and “Blow Up the Outside World,” but later in his career he performed stripped-down acoustic covers of songs that showcased his vulnerability. In 2006, he had a surprise hit with a swampy cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.”

In the video above, taken in 2015 at the SiriusXM studios, Cornell gives a passionate acoustic performance of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Prince originally wrote the song in the late ’80s for a side project known as the The Family. But in 1990, the song was a worldwide hit for Irish singer Sinead O'Connor.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
