Why do they only have the short version? The original "purple rain" was an epic, 8 minute long composition. Given that the track is downloaded and not played on a radio or something, I would expect that they would have the full length, but they don't. What a disappointment?!

I don't know what genius came up with the idea, but previously there was only a shortened version of Purple Rain (just over 4:00 minutes) available here on Amazon. It has been a while since i had heard the song, so i downloaded that version a few months back without knowing it was the shortened version. For a while, at least regarding the legal sites i checked, the short version was the only version available.

Well that was then, this is the now. I just downloaded and listened to this version available now. This is the full length 8:42 minute version every fan is looking for. At the end, the whoo-hoooing is there, the violin playing, the audience whistling, it's all there. Yes!

The mp3 sound is clear and has good stereo sound. Maybe it's not cd (or vinyl) quality, but it's still sounds decent to me.

If you don't have the full length version already - get it here!

Prince can do no wrong. I found myself catapulted back to the 80s when this tune came on. I could remember sitting in front of my friends television set as we quietly watched a the movie, the soundtrack is based on. Giggling, eyes covered sometimes wide in sheer shock, but feeling good. This song leaves me with an abundance of good silly dreams.

Purple Rain- I wanted this in my play list and I have known this song for years, but it downloaded just fine with no problems at all. I have the hard copies already. Was sad to hear he passed away, such a gentle natured guy. So we wanted to download this in memory of him. Purple Rain is one of his best in my opinion and perfect for those who don't prefer a more rock sound. This is really nice. I like to leave a review for anything I purchase on amazon, so I did not want to leave this out even though it was just a download for my music.

...of the 80s and Belgium. One of my troops was a big Prince fan and he played this album when we were in the office. I already had a couple of Prince's greatest hits albums, but this song wouldn't play because of a bad spot on the CD; so I downloaded it from Amazon to replace it on my computer.

The song, The Movie are the best! One of the stars has gone. And there will be Purple Rain now that Prince Rodgers Nelson has left us. But he left us with wonderful music to listen to and a #! movie to watch if you're fortunate and blessed enough to have your personal copy. Jehovah watch over you.

This will always be my favorite song by Prince and the Revolution. It's not just the lyrics. The music is fantastic! He plays that guitar like he never has again. I wonder if he was apologizing to a girlfriend or sweetheart. Regardless, it was his best performance ever!!!
