Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ turns 40 — and we celebrate with the ultimate soundtrack playlist
“When Doves Cry” to, of course, the epic title track, “Purple Rain.”And that was all a month before the release of the hit movie, which will be back in select theaters on July 3.It’s not only my favorite soundtrack of all time, but one of my top-five albums of all time. Period.And in honor of Purple Rain’s 40th anniversary, let’s throw it back to some of my other all-time favorite soundtracks:Let’s kick it off with the smash “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, which had everybody twirling under that disco ball back in 1977.John Travolta may have been the star of the movie, but the Bees Gees were the stars of the soundtrack.Whenever “Stayin’ Alive” comes on — trust — disco is no longer dead.And it still makes you wanna bust into your best Tony Manero strut.Just like the Bee Gees were the masterminds behind the “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, Babyface was the man behind all the female feels on the 1995 “Waiting to Exhale” soundtrack …Face wrote and produced for a stellar cast of soul sisters … from Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige to Chaka Khan and Patti LaBelle to Toni Braxton and Brandy.I mean, it was a who’s who!And of course, there was Whitney Houston, who also starred in the film.
