Purple Rain (Prince, Morris Day, 1984)

So, I have NOTHING deep or introspective to post. I just have to say, I really like this cheesy movie. It came on VH1 last week. I had to DVR it. Prince is singing, The Beautiful Ones, right now. Love that song! Yeah, I know, Prince is a bit "different." But, he's a brilliant artist with an uncanny knack for turning the oddest phrases into art. Just think about it: Purple Rain, Raspberry Beret, When Doves Cry....I mean honestly, who else could turn those odd concepts into art?

PS. Did you know he wrote, I Would Die 4 U, about Jesus? Ah ha...even Prince recognizes Jesus' sacrifice. That makes Prince all the more cool in my book!
