Backwards Woman is a composition created for the film Purple Rain, tracked on 8 February 1984, on the same day as percussion overdubs on The Glamorous Life, at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, California. Apart from the actual songs it is the only composition from the score that is written by Prince and not Michel Colombier who did the rest of the score.

It is the music used under the scene where Apollonia first visits The Kid's home and presses play on a cassette deck which has a tape with this music playing. The song was copyrighted at ASCAP together with the rest of the score.

Although about a minute and a half of it is featured in the movie, it did not get any official release as such and the song is therefor considered unreleased.
