Update: Is This the Best Song From the Movie ‘Purple Rain?’

I know, this is heresy coming from a major Prince fan (circa 1982-1990), but I watched the video today, and it is tough to argue against it.

Unfortunately, His Royal Badness is a real prick about online content, so I’ll embed the credits to “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” but you can see the original video here.

While I work on my resume’, go ahead and debate this.  I’d love to be talked down, here.  I will say that if you include the Sheila E. remix of “I would Die 4 U,” there’s no contest, but that wasn’t in the movie.

Update: Now that I think about it, Prince was kinda the villain in that movie.
