Purple rain, purple rain Purple rain, purple rain Purple rain, purple rain I only want to see you bathing in the purple rain. 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. Purple rain, purple rain Purple rain, purple rain Purple rain, purple rain I only want to see you walkin’ in the purple rain. The title track of his 1984 album and film, Purple Rain chronicles The Kid’s nostalgic yearning for a pure love. For Prince, the international success of Purple Rain was simply the culmination of many years of hard work, coupled with a strong sense of self-confidence. In 1985 he told Rolling Stone: I wish people would understand that I always thought I was bad.

Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and heavy metal with nine superbly crafted songs. Even its best-known songs don't tread conventional territory: the bass-less "When Doves Cry" is an eerie, spare neo-psychedelic masterpiece; "Let's Go Crazy" is a furious blend of metallic guitars, Stonesy riffs, and a hard funk backbeat; the anthemic title track is a majestic ballad filled with brilliant guitar flourishes.

Purple Rain" is a song by Prince and The Revolution. It is the title track from the 1984 album of the same name, which in turn is the soundtrack album for the 1984 film of the same name, and was released as the third single from that album. A power ballad, the song is a combination of rock, R&B, gospel, and orchestral music. Purple Rain" reached number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks and is considered to be one of Prince's signature songs.

Time magazine ranked it the 15th greatest album of all time in 1993, and it placed 18th on VH1's Greatest Rock and Roll Albums of All Time countdown. Rolling Stone ranked it the second-best album of the 1980s and 76th on their list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

Those sessions saw both Prince And The Revolution and The Time (Prince’s pop-funk side project, who he’d managed to get signed up to the Warner Bros label) working on the songs that would make it into the film, as well as attending acting and dance classes. During that time, Prince closely examined the relationships within the two bands, so that he could accurately portray the band rivalry depicted in the film. And with the album’s sales going through the roof (. million copies were sold in its first week and around 20 million have been shifted since), Purple Rain became the most-successful merging of music and film since The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night.
