2 GOOD NOT 2 B TRUE: Okay, so everyone knows that Prince wrote "Nothing Compares 2 U", made famous by Sinead O'Connor, "Sugar Walls" for Sheena Easton, and countless songs for The Time and Sheila E., and that Cyndi Lauper's "When You Were Mine" was a cover of a Prince song from Dirty Mind.

And I vaguely remembered, and confirmed today, that he wrote the Bangles' "Manic Monday" -- which, when you think about it, sounds like it could've easily been on Around the World in a Day or Parade.

But am I the last person in the world to find out that he co-wrote Stevie Nicks' "Stand Back"? Yeesh, that's an odd one.
