Here’s the music set to one of my favorite shows “House”
Let’s see… add a falsetto vocal track, glaring guitar riffs, women moaning and groaning, 80’s synth strings, samples ripped from various Prince tracks, and yup what you end up with is a Prince track.

This album also produced such hits as, “Eanie Meany, & “Computer Song”.
