You cannot dismiss the idea that Prince’s older music was a big deal way back in the 80s, and still is today. “When Doves Cry” was the first single from Prince’s 1984 album, Purple Rain, and was the top selling single of that year.
Here’s Prince at his finest.
This always has been, and always will be, my favorite song by Prince.
All of you should be familiar with this song. It’s like… an unwritten law. I hope that one day I can beat him at a game of basketball.
