    Purple Rain The Beautiful Ones & Purple Rain ,The Beautiful Ones, When Doves Cry & Computer Blue
    ATWIAD The Ladder ,Paisley Park & Raspberry Beret

I'm so sorry but I had to choose a couple (for my proper choices for some of them... shame on me...
JaneyPoos used to be it... then they changed what it was. Now what I am isn't it and what is it is strange and frightening to me...
