Song Question

In the Omnibus documentary, there's a portion where they show a performance clip from the Nude Tour. The lyrics went something along the lines of:

"All my friends call me Prince,
but all the ladies call me the Legend Man"

or something to that effect.

Anybody know the name of that song? It sounds very familiar to "The ? of U," but I'm not sure.

It's an extended part of "The Question Of U" that he used to perform on that
tour. It's unclear whether it's actually a seperate song in it's own right,
but if it is it would probably be called "Electric Man". it's a bit like the
situation with the "Take this beat" part on the extended version of "I Wish
U Heaven".

As Boris says, if it does have a title, its Electric Man.

The truth is, its no more than a improv section. On the sound engineer listing of the Nude tour, its simply listed as The Question of U.

The same goes for the Parade hit and run tour, where it was never listed as a track, but simply as "Head", even though it ran for an average of 6 minutes past the end of Head itself.

yes Electric Man is a slow blues number performed on the Nude tour.
