The Movie: Purple Rain (1984)
What Is It?: All the egomania, tackiness, misogyny, and idiocy of Albert Magnoli’s movie melts away every time that Purple Motherfucker (as Miles Davis called him) takes the stage to sweat along with some great track from the greatest soundtrack ever made. Whittle away the drama and you’ve got one hell of a sequence of amazing music videos.
Why Today?: Today is Purple Day.
