1. Purple Rain

I think you have probably worked out what is my number one is, but just in case, at the top for me is the outstanding Purple Rain. In fact it is one of my all time favourite songs. I can sing this song word-perfect and I think most of you can too (especially after a few shandies- amirite?). It also won the Oscar for best original song score in 1985. It’s another one of his more emotive tracks and there is something about it that makes me feel emotional no matter what mood I am in. That there, is talent. I’ll leave you with these lyrics from Purple Rain:

“If you know what I’m singing about up here
C’mon raise your hand
Purple rain, Purple rain”

(You’re singing it now, aren’t you?)

Album: Purple Rain

Year: 1984

Chart Position: 6

The one that almost made the list: his version of Nothing Compares 2 U
