Purple Rain

I've always wanted to do a lesson or two on Prince, but up until now it's been next to impossible since Prince - backed up by a team of hard-assed lawyers - was always super-protective of his music, and refused to allow any unauthorised videos up on YouTube. It's sad that this situation only seems to be changing after his death, with a large number of Prince-related videos springing up over recent weeks. So I thought I'd go ahead and join them with this look at one of his most famous songs. Fingers-crossed this video will be allowed to remain live.
