A Treat for Purple Rain Fans: Vanity’s Version of “Sex Shooter”
When most people think of the song “Sex Shooter”, they think of Appolonia 6, the girl group who performed the song in the 1984 movie Purple Rain.
For those unfamiliar with the movie, Purple Rain stars rock star Prince as a troubled musician in the Minneapolis music scene.
Prior to filming the movie, Prince dated Vanity of Vanity 6, a girl group he also produced.
Yet, Vanity dropped out of the movie. But before she quit the movie, she recorded an earlier version of “Sex Shooter”, something I found out recently. Despite the song being just a demo version, I personally believe Vanity sung it better. Yet, I’ll let the reader be the judge.
