sometimes it snows in april

Included on both their eighth studio album and the soundtrack to the self-made film Under the Cherry Moon, the song by Prince in collaboration with Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman (The Revolution) is a recounting of the death of the character Christopher Tracy (played by Prince) and their desire to be reunited in Heaven and was recorded on this day in 1985. Often performed as an encore during concerts, the song received renewed circulation upon the artist’s death in 2016, falling on the same day, thirty-one years later.
