An absolutely great album with a little something for everyone on it.
If you haven't, I suggest you do it today.

Sorry, for never listen the album. Saw the movie a couple of times. All was amazing.The acting and singing. The whole of it. It's a "classic".

He was just the "final flash" at the danish Roskilde festival and what i heard people say and saw at YouTube, he still got "it".

By surprise "Purple Rain" is no longer "muted" the moment it's being uploaded, as it used to be. Or not yet LOL

Oh! Love it! I have the CD. The movie was great, though. The angst! That was the best part. Prince has that kind of weird, kinky way about him that I find really attractive in a base way, even though I think I could probably fit him in one of my larger pockets.

Thanks for the reminder!

Oh the things I endured in the 80's for the music I loved.
They loved Billy Idol-

I loved Prince.
There..I said it..
I put up with teasing to no end...
They'd whisper "PINK CLOUDS" just to tick me off.
Over the years Prince has definitely showed that he is eccentric, and guilty of non- conformity.
I don't his own right the man is a musical genius.
I'll sing Darling Nikki till the day I DIE...

Not a song on that entire soundtrack that I don't know by heart.
Like this one...


and yes..I even wore purple a lot of the time...*blushes

Is it Purple?

Didn't they release a limited edition Purple album?

Nah, it's the black vinyl version. The purple one goes for close to $150. Got mine at a local flea market for $10, if memory serves.

Prince is a musical genius. Too bad he is too nutty to put it to good use.

I was always more of a Morris Day and the Time guy, but Purple Rain was an amazing album. Takes me back to my childhood.

Prince was cool til he came out that time wearing the pants with the butt cheeks cut out, ever since then I have had my doubts.

Here is my favorite Prince song ever

Here he is doing Creep by Radiohead at Coachella 08, pretty cool cover
