Product Description

Gospel, rock, funk…it’s all here on this soundtrack to the film loosely based on Prince’s life. He grabbed an Academy Award and two Grammies for these gems and you’ll know ’em all: Let’s Go Crazy; When Doves Cry; I Would Die 4 U; plus the title track and more!
Maybe this music by Prince & the Revolution will never quite sound as, well, revolutionary as it did in 1984 (and nothing else has ever sounded like the extraordinary cooing and fluttering of “When Doves Cry”), but it’s a pop landmark in Prince’s Artist-ic career. The hit movie was really just a big-screen showcase for Prince to perform these songs (some of them in tear-the-roof-off “live” versions set in a Minneapolis club). I don’t know why that warped sermonette introduces “Let’s Go Crazy” (one thing you’ve got to love about Prince: he’s always been weird), but somehow I’m glad it’s there. Other highlights include the sexual scorcher “Darling Nikki” (with its crazy backwards coda) and that anthemic title tune. Don’t you miss Wendy and Lisa, too? –Jim Emerson
