Sinéad O'Connor

Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor (born 8 December 1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s. O'Connor achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a new arrangement of Prince's song "Nothing Compares 2 U."

Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures. These include her ordination as a priest, despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background, and strongly expressing views on organised religion, women's rights, war, and child abuse. In addition to her ten solo albums, her work includes many singles, songs for films, collaborations with many other artists, and appearances at charity fundraising concerts. In 2017, O'Connor changed her name to Magda Davitt. After converting to Islam in 2018, she changed it to Shuhada' Sadaqat. However, she continued to record and perform under her birth name.

Song lyrics[edit]

All songs written by Sinéad O'Connor

I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got (1990)[edit]

  • Maybe it sounds mean
    But I really don't think so
    You asked for the truth
    And I told you
    Through their own words
    They will be exposed
    • The Emperor's New Clothes
  • I'm walking through the desert
    And I am not frightened although it's hot
    I have all that I requested
    And I do not want what I haven't got
    • I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got

Don't Cry For Me Argentina (single) (1992)[edit]

  • I have an invitation for you.
    Is there a celebration?
    No, I'm not inviting you to a celebration.
    I'm inviting you to a war...
    I'll lead you, if you have sheep, give them away
    If you have a family, leave them
    • Ave Maria
