Throwback Thursday Video: ‘Purple Rain’ By Prince

Whether you loved it or hated it, everybody remembers the Prince film “Purple Rain.”

The movie, which was sort of, but not really, a biographical look at Prince’s life, was a pretty big hit back in 1984.

It was made for around $7 million bucks and grossed well over $35 million.

Just as famous as the song was the movie’s title track of the same name.

The song peaked at #2 on the Billboard charts and probably would have went to #1 if it hadn’t been for Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” which had a tight hold on the top spot around that time.

Crazy thing is, the song actually re-entered the charts after Prince’s death last year!
