Glad to see this jam getting love in Richmond. It’s been played a few times recently and has been well received……as it should! We just learned who it’s about too. Prince wrote “When Doves Cry” about his high school sweetheart, who was also still the love of his life at that time. She is an R&B singer that we all know, but what many of us didn’t know was that the two were together for years. It’s one-third of Vanity 6/ Appollonia 6…Susan Moonsie! She was the quiet persona of the trio and Prince actually created Vanity 6 around her when he put the group together. He allegedly wrote the song about their up and down relationship and it’s also alleged that Prince wrote the song, “Private Joy” about Susan Moonsie as well.
