Old School Fridays: Prince

Today's theme is Prince. I remember back in 1984 when Purple Rain had just come out. I wasn't that familiar with the Purple One at the point, not having his previous albums. But everywhere you turned there was Prince. And than when I heard the music....woah! I was a fan. I went out and bought Purple Rain, I still have it on vinyl. It's still one of my favorite songs by Prince. Unfortunately you can't find it, or any Prince on You Tube to upload so I'm just presenting the song here.

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participantsIf you want to join in on the fun,

Thank you for this song, when I hear the guitar it puts me in a good place. This is the coolest song, don't know what the hect he is talking about, but it's beautiful none-the-less.

Purple Rain turned me into a Stan. I saw the movie in the theater 10 times with my BFF when I was going into the 9th grade. Our friend worked at the movie theater and we couldn't get enough. Thanks for the memories. :-)

I saw Prince at the Capital Center 3 times. Capital Center is no longer there either.
