About the Song
"Purple Rain" is a power ballad by Prince and the The Revolution. It was the title track from the 1984 album of the same name, which in turn was the soundtrack album for the 1984 film of the same name, and was released as the third single from that album. The song is an emotional combination of rock and roll, pop and gospel music. It reached #2 in the U.S., and is widely considered as one of Prince's signature songs. The song was recorded live at the Minneapolis club First Avenue in 1983. The performance was the live debut of Wendy Melvoin, and also netted the final three songs of the Purple Rain album, although the songs would undergo studio overdubs later. "Purple Rain"'s original lyrics contained an extra verse about money, which was edited out, as it diluted the emotional impact of the song. "Purple Rain" opens with a lone guitar quickly followed by live drumming and a prominent organ,.    Download this sheet!
