"When Doves Cry" is one of Prince's most iconic songs and music videos. It was a worldwide hit, and his first American number one single. Enjoy!
The song appeared on Prince's album “Parade” and was a worldwide hit. NME puts “Kiss” at number 4 on their Greatest Songs of All Time list.
Prince narrates a one-night stand with a beautiful but promiscuous woman (the "Little Red Corvette" of the title). He uses several other automobile metaphors in the song.
Prince said this about his song: "...Stay happy, stay focused, and you can beat the de-elevator [the "down" elevator as a metaphor for Satan]." It may be hard to understand the lyrics in this performance, but they're worth checking out. Find extended lyrics here
