Purple Rain

Music by Prince

Originally Performed by Prince

"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 Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for two weeks. It is certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It is considered to be one of Prince's signature songs. Following Prince's death in 2016, "Purple Rain" rose to number one on the US and UK iTunes Charts, allowing "Purple Rain" to re-enter the Billboard Hot 100 reaching number four. It also re-entered the UK Singles Chart at number 6, making it two places higher than its original peak of number 8. Originally peaking at number 12 in France, "Purple Rain" reached number one on April 30, 2016.

"Purple Rain" is ranked number 144 on the Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and is also included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.[7] During the Super Bowl XLI halftime show in 2007, in which Prince was the featured performer, "Purple Rain" was the last song of his set; the event became especially notable because actual rain started to fall during the performance as the stage and Dolphin Stadium was lit with purple lights,[8] and the show continues to top lists of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time. Prince performed the song as the opening of a medley of his hits with Beyoncé at the 2004 Grammy Awards. "Purple Rain" was the final song Prince performed live following his performance of it during his final concert in Atlanta, Georgia on April 14, 2016

BaSix : Embodiment : 00  1 CD

BaSix : Embodiment

For their second release baSix has the great idea of getting some of a cappella's finest talents to help them so they engaged the House Jack's Deke Sharon and Britt Quinten of M-Pact to produce the album. A mixture of some fine original songs along with pop classics such as Prince's "Purple Rain" and the Beatles "Come Together" makes for a top-notch contemporary a cappella album worthy of all fans collections. All songs are in English and the production quality is superb thanks to noted a cappella sound engineer Bill Hare.

Songlist: Come Together, Right Now, Fallen, Dining Out, Purple Rain, Living And Loving It, Sweet Misery, My Heart Won't Work Like It Used To, If You Were My Woman, The Right Way, Part Of Me As One , Right Now
