Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

1 Aug

My Prince cassette


Purple is this 5-foot-2 bad ass.

Purple is his hallmark color.

Purple are the leather pants he rocked in the movie.

Purple Rain was the movie I was forbidden to watch in my youth.

Purple Rain won him an Academy Award and he’s not even an actor.

Purple Rain was too rated R for my Latino parents, so I got the album instead.

Purple Rain introduced me to When Doves Cry and Let’s Go Crazy.

Purple Rain was one of my favorite cassette tapes … yeah that’s right I said cassette tape. I’m old school.

Purple is Prince … and yeah he can pull off purple … he’s Prince.

    Loved the 80’s – Prince was and still is one of my favourites. How about Raspberry Beret ?

    Hi again 😀 I just got the album out and it IS ‘Purple Rain’ – A song that has always made me laugh is “Darling Nikki” 😉 I love “Take me with you” and “The Beautiful Ones” – very moving. Glad to have found another Prince fan!! 🙂

    Only Prince can pull off something this awesome. Purple and awesome. Yes, I remember the Purple Rain mania way back then. It’s always fun to go back in the past I realize the great stuff we had then.
