Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ Celebrates Three Decades Of Sexiness
By Nadia Noir
1984’s Purple Rain may have been Prince’s sixth studio album (he was prolific even back then!). While rock from the Midwest was all sort of American pride sounding, Prince brought the sexy to Minneapolis and may be the only person who has every done that. The spare album was short and sweet at only 45 minutes but included songs like “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Darling Nikki,” and, of course, “Purple Rain.”
Prince won’t let us watch any of his old videos via the interwebs, so here’s a new one of him performing “Let’s Go Crazy” in Manchester recently. Enjoy and don’t forget to make it rain tonight after you and the Mrs. brush your teeth.
