I can remember having a sixth grade "date night" to to see Purple Rain. The movie was o.k. but the soundtrack was great. And now Spin is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Best Movie (and Soundtrack) Ever Purple Rain with Purplish Rain, a song-by-song tribute to Prince's classic soundtrack album.
Of Montreal cover "Computer Blue"
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings cover "Take Me With U",
Greg Dulli's Twilight Singers take on"When Doves Cry" with an assist from actual Purple Rain star Apollonia.
The whole thing will go up for free download on Spin's website tomorrow (June 23).
