“Can you make it rain harder?”

by Greg Robertson on April 21st, 2016

Anyone who knows me, or follows me on Twitter knows I’m a huge Prince fan.

So here’s a story.

Considered by everyone as the best Super Bowl performance of all time, I remember living in South Florida at the time and watching this, the rain was just pouring. The story goes (and they tell it in the link to the video below) is that when they told Prince that it began to rain he asked, “Can you make it rain harder?”

I never not get chills every time I hear that song. But by the time he came to finale, singing Purple Rain, at the Super Bowl, like today, nothing but tears.
