Underneath the purple rain :: M5MO


My 5 Music Obsessions 
Dedicated to Prince

1. Purple Rain (live) :: Prince

“I only wanted to see you underneath
the purple rain.”


2. Nothing Compares 2 U :: Sinead O’Connor

“But nothing,
I said nothing
can take away these blues
‘Cause nothing compares,
nothing compares
to you.”


3. When U Were Mine :: Cyndi Lauper

“When you were mine,
you were kinda, sorta my best friend.”


4. Manic Monday :: The Bangles

“Six o’clock already?
I was just in the middle of a dream.”


5. Love Song :: Madonna

“Say what you mean,
mean what you say,
don’t go and throw our love away.”
