Today in Princestory...

Prince released "Purple Rain" as a single thirty-eight years ago today.

I still have all my purple vinyl from those singles (the pics aren't mine, though).

It felt more logical to release that instrumental version in the film, and just do a fade on it before all the weird drum fills later on. (eg: a single edit).

The vocal... I can't get past, "BLOOP! AHH OHHH HA...AAAHAA HAHA HAAAH AH AH AHA AH"

Sorry not sorry, the vocal version is cringeworthy. But I love the simple chords on it.
