And God Created Woman is the 15th track (14th song) on Prince's 14th album SymbolSmallerBlue.png, the second album to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in early December 1991, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced Sexy M.F., Love 2 The 9's, The Morning Papers, The Sacrifice Of Victor and Arrogance). It was included as the 21st track (13th song) on a March 1992, configuration of the SymbolSmallerBlue.png album, and the 21st track (14th song) on a late-Summer 1992, configuration, before many of the album's segues were removed for release.

The song's lyrics refer heavily to the Biblical account of God's creation of Eve, the first woman, in Genesis 2:21-23 (3rdEyeBlue.png is also based on the Biblical story of Adam and Eve).

  • SymbolSmallerBlue.png album
  • The title of this song is also the title of the 1956 Roger Vadim film And God Created Woman (original French title Et Dieu... créa la femme), which launched the career of Vadim's then-wife Brigitte Bardot. Vadim is also the director of the film Barbarella (1968), from which Prince took great inspiration. He sampled from it in Space, mentions it in a segue on the SymbolSmallerBlue.png album and used clips from it in the Gett Off home video. Last but not least keyboard player Tommy Barbarella (né Elm) is believed to be named after the film.
