Prince & the Revolution – “Purple Rain” – (1984)

Prince was at his best on this album (which was the soundtrack to Prince’s movie Purple Rain). The movie was kind of his 8 Mile. The vocals are really being belted out over the power ballad guitar. Musically and vocally, this is Prince’s most interesting song. It’s become one of Prince’s signature songs and whenever I hear it I think of Prince on a motorcycle of Prince sitting very strangely in a bathtub. I don’t know why.
