The soundtrack to Prince's loosely autobiographical rock-u-drama, Purple Rain, is a delicious fusion of musical genres, from the rock-tinged anthem "Let's Go Crazy" to the gospel-rooted title track. Moving seamlessly from the mindless pop of "Take Me with You," an endearing duet with the film's costar, Apollonia Kotero, to the sparse funk of the bass line-less "When Doves Cry," Purple Rain catapulted the androgynous Minneapolis native and his multi racial funk-rock band, the Revolution, into pop superstardom. The record, which sold nearly 1.5 million copies its first week in stores and garnered "His Royal Badness" two Grammies and an Academy Award for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special, forever changed the sound and fashion sensibility of modern pop and R&B. With this flawless nine-song record, Prince proved once and for all that baby, he's a star. Deanna L. Martin
