that's right! it begins today!
while every other blog in the known blogiverse comments on the world cup, i'm going to begin the 9 day exposure of Prince's magnum opus: Purple Rain
released in 1984, PR was designed by Prince as an album of mega-hits to pump his movie Purple Rain. What he may not have planned on was the lasting effects PR, both album and film, would have on music, movies, fashion, etc.
The first track, Let's Go Crazy, flows from organ solo to hard rock opera, with the central theme to generally enjoy life. It hit #1 on the Billboard charts in 1984, but those k-razy k-oreans didn't seem to be fans, as it was banned in south korea on its release.
Mre importantly, Erotic City was the B-side on the single (the second single from the album), which just may be my favorite Prince song ever, thanks in part to a heaping dose of George Clinton-atude!! Dig?
