I Don’t Like “Purple Rain.”

  1. I completely agree with this post. I can’t say that I saw “Purple Rain” nor can I say that I’m a fan of the song. I think about “1999”, “I Would Die for You”, “Raspberry Beret”, “Little Red Corvette”, “Kiss”, “U Got the Look”. I really could go on, but I can’t say I would include “Purple Rain.” I really enjoyed reading this post. I laughed way more than I probably should have.

    1. There should never be a limit to laughter. I’m glad I could engender that feeling for you. As for me, I call it my “bathroom song,” meaning if I were at a show it would have been my perfect natural intermission song.

      1. Yes, definitely an intermission song. Or, maybe it could be the final song of the show, and I could leave early and head out to my car and beat the traffic. You know, since everyone seems to carry such deep feelings for that song.

      2. While they were all waving their lighters (or lighter apps on their iPhones) we would be in the car, beating traffic. I like the way your mind works, girl!

      3. Exactly! You already know how it would happen. They would be in there crying and screaming. While I would be like, “Excuse me. Pardon me.” As I am more concerned about beating traffic, and avoiding interaction with a bunch of Prince… I mean “Purple Rain” fans.

      4. That’s the real point, isn’t it? They’re “Purple Rain” fans. We’re true fans. And Prince would have understood if we took off early because we weren’t big fans of the song. I’m sure he didn’t like how every single one of his songs turned out. We’ll never know now anyway.

  2. “Love the one who is love, the one who gives us the power, the one who made everything” love your post but I do understand the drive of others who were at a minimum touched by at least one song. A catalogue is waiting for them to experience one of passion, pain, and love. So I’m excited for them and would love for you to read my post about attending the Purple One’s last performance.
    Cheers all!

    1. Touched by at least one song. I love that, and I agree that people can definitely be fans of one song. In this day and age even more so with the ability to download single songs so readily. Like I said, I don’t call that a negative, just a different stance. I happen to love vast swaths of that catalogue. And I always have. Thanks for the love. I’ll check out your blog.
