Pink cashmere

This is my go to song. Every night when i get off work. That guitar shreds my being. Any one else?
Will be listening to the Purple One till the day I die. Will dance till I no longer can..

Brilliant, beautiful song. The guitar/strings combo is breathtaking. The touching imagery and lyrics are perfect.

This song is far to good not to be included on an album.

You could make a multi-volume boxset of Prince songs with that designation.

Although I'm more a "fan" of the Mayte era and the songs he dedicated to her.. I really think this is one of his best love songs of his entire career.. perfect vocals melodie and the guitar.. one of my favs

This is a song he wrote for Anna Garcia on her 18th birthday. She later went by Anna Fantastic.

This is such an amazing song!! This would be a career-defining song for almost any other artist! (it is to bad that it never got its own release or a video).

He played a phenomenal piano version at a soundcheck I had the privilege to see. If anything his vocals were better than the studio version - just gorgeous cloud9

It was released as a single around the time of The Hits cd, but it wasn't a big hit. I do remember hearing it on the radio. He also played it live on the short European tour in 1995.

definitely in my top 5 favorite songs...sadly, only a few live performances; sadder still that so few of those few were recorded.

if anybody knows of a definitive live version, i'd be much obliged if you'd hint at a date or title of the performance.

I named my daughter after this song. It's wonderful and for some reason, when he sings it live it's better. Something about the vocals live that makes it greater!!! There are some live performances of it. I just don't remember where.

It was released as a single in the US to promote the Hits albums. It was a modest hit on the R&B charts (#14) but bombedd on the Top 100 charts (#50). Chart issues probably related to Prince backlash at the time and the song is too unique for radio.

This is the song I use to demonstrated to people who don't know Prince him playing all the instruments, doing all the vocals, the arraingements, writing and producing. If you listen to it closely there is so much going on and one person doing it all. I hear something different everytime..Brilliant!

..Hello, who is it?
Yes, this is a prettyman, Princey!

She just posted a picture on her instagram last week of the actual pink cashmere coat he gave her. It has fantastic down one sleeve.

While it's truly baffling that this song never made an album, I will say it certainly supports Prince's statement that he didn't always offer his best work to record labels.
.
It certainly was a cream-of-the-crop choice to be a non-album track added as a bonus cut on The Hits / The B-sides. At the time, I was reluctant to buy that set. Pink Cashmere made it worth $40 to me.
