Am I Not Your Girl?

Am I Not Your Girl? (1992)

Am I Not Your Girl? is the third album by Irish singer Sinéad O'Connor and the follow-up to the hugely successful I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got. It is a collection of covers of mostly jazz standards, which Sinéad describes as "the songs I grew up listening to [and] that made me want to be a singer". The album title comes from the song "Success Has Made a Failure of Our Home".

Sinead: I was longing for hymns and religious songs that weren't so boring and that also didn't perpetuate this kind of false idea of God, which I felt Catholicism did at the time. So I was always interested in the idea of rescuing God from religion and the idea of singing as prayer. Rasta music is the only kind of music that I think really gets that across. You feel the spirit of God alive in that music.

 

(on comparing her later and earlier albums) Sinéad: When you're young, you don't really know quite what you're aiming at. You're very impulsive and acting on impulse, which is very important and valuable. But you're kind of swimming in a blind sea. When you get older, you have more of a sense of direction.

 

Sinéad has a close relationship with several members of fellow Irish band U2.

 

After Sinéad's appearance on Saturday Night Life, Madonna copied Sinéad's performance by ripping up a photograph of Joey Buttafuoco.
