Piano Solo in "I Would Die 4 U" & scene in Under The Cherry Moon

So I'm listening to the long 30-minute version of "I Would Die 4 U". As it rolls on, Prince (presumably) starts soloing on the piano. Then I hear something sorta familiar. At about the 14:15 mark, he starts doing something odd on the piano. The bass also changes a bit, too. It's a weird traveling bassline.

It strikes me that it sounds very much like some crazy background music in Under The Cherry Moon. I think it's the scene outside La Pavillion where Tricky spills the beans about Christopher wanting to marry Mary for her $50M inheritance. At about the 14:36 part comes the piano over that bassline and that is what struck me as familiar.

Anyone ever notice that?

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

The UTCM cue you are referring to is, in fact, an alternate instrumental recording of the track UTCM. It's possible the piano is similar but on a quick listen it didn't struck me.
