Attack of the Killer Soundtrack #18 - Attack of Purple Rain
Since this year is the 30th anniversary (traditionally the "pearl anniversary") of Purple Rain, we thought we would do a special episode devoted to the monumental soundtrack. Well, it has become this huge project, and led to this first episode, where we discuss Prince - the man... the myth... the legend. And in the process, build a familiar yet slightly adjusted version of the Purple Rain soundtrack.
And as we drive to the mansion, we also mention… musical archaeology, Animaniacs, having a pool, backmasking, minor key moments, cranking out kids, analogies, lighter app, force-fed you LSD through your ears, stockings falling down legs, we’ve made fifty cents, Radiohead, cover bands, in the hotel lobby, knocking it out in a weekend, The Ballad of Dorothy Parker, dancing to 90’s R & B, hunting down musicians, lizard eyes, Nick Cannon, 1940’s slapstick porn, being litigious, peculiar, Morris Day & The Time, makes great omelets, chemtrais, the boiling kettle is ready, mansions are like tissues, the slave era, The Beatles, like a doll’s eyes, sultry, dig if you will take a left here, If I was your Girlfriend, keep it in the vault, listening to Darling Nikki with your dad, dog notes, dirty horns, a sad apartment, how many people do you know with mansions?, the plunger, making omelettes, getting embalmed, Warner Brothers, she’ll show you no mercy and The Illuminati.
“…he was hailed as this genius, this little short genius man… who could dance. Yeah, and that appealed to me.”
