It's been 25 (!!!) years since Prince dropped this album. The movie was no Academy Award winner (remember the scene when Prince runs to break up his parent's fight? It was, uhm, unfortunate) but the music and the clothes were amazing.
This soundtrack is truly one of the greatest albums ever. Almost ever track could be a stand alone single. Today you're lucky if you get two, which is why CD sales are down and iTunes sales are up.
I still remember the first time I heard "When Doves Cry" aka "The Song With No Base". Brilliant, freaking brilliant.
Prince has changed. He's not yet at the Michael Jackson level of bat shit crazy but getting there. He's one of the most talented musicians out there and it pains me that he's so weird now.
He refuses to let his music be on YouTube so all I can post is the album cover.
What is your favorite track off this album?
Have a great weekend.
