Prince's seminal Purple Rain album is 25 years old. For my 10th birthday, I received a boom box, a Purple Rain cassette, and a friend-filled trip to see the movie in the theater. I have a very deep love for Prince. I am buying this issue of Spin, which commemorates the fact that Purple Rain is now an antique with a (free) eponymous collection of covers, and have almost decided to throw myself a Purple Rain themed birthday party. The End.
