“When Doves Cry” was Prince’s first American number one single, topping the charts for five weeks!It was the top-selling single of the year!
This song was a very quintessential title in the film Purple Rain, and was intended to match a theme directly related to scene in the film!
When Doves Cry became an instant classic with emotion and a story driven theme! The 80’s sure were different than today, I bet we can all agree on that! Whether cinema, music or anything artistic, times sure have changed!
