Thank You For Hearing Me by Sinead O’Connor

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, a musical meditation on thankfulness.

After O'Connor ripped up a photo of the pope during a performance on 'Saturday Night Live' in 1992, many people weren't especially thankful for the controversy-courting Irish singer. Madonna publicly criticized her. Joe Pesci said she needed a smack. And Frank Sinatra suggested he might "kick her ass." A nervous breakdown and a suicide attempt would follow. And in 1994, she released this song.
