DOWNLOAD Prince – Purple Rain Mp3.

Purple Rain was a landmark that solidified Prince’s standing as the preeminent pop genius of his generation; more than three decades on, it still retains all of its power.

Prince’s sixth studio offering, 1984’s Music From The Motion Picture Purple Rain, is Springsteen’s Nebraska laced with the violence of James Brown’s deepest grooves and liberally dusted with white dove feathers, dried rose petals, and scented candle wax.

The album manages to deftly thread the needle between a dazzling array of genres: disaffected synth pop, tongue-wagging hair metal, dark R&B, and pleading soul.

The result is something that isn’t a successful combination of genres as much as an effortless, almost incidental transcendence of the very idea of genre itself. It doesn’t matter what it’s called.

Take a listen below.

 

 

Lyrics to Prince – Purple Rain

[Verse 1]
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

[Chorus]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain

[Verse 2]
I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It’s such a shame our friendship had to end

[Chorus]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain

[Verse 3]
Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changing
It’s time we all reach out for something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can’t seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it and let me guide you to the purple rain


[Chorus]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain, wooo!
If you know what I’m singing about up here
Come on raise your hand
Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
I only want to see you in the purple rain
