Broken (occasionally erroneously referred to as Broken, Lonely And Crying) is an unreleased song recorded in early 1981, at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, following the Dirty Mind Tour arena dates (during the same set of sessions as Commercial). The song uses a 1950s rockabilly style, and may have been intended for Prince's next album (which became Controversy) until the similarly-styled Jack U Off was recorded in Spring-Summer 1981. Prince performed the track a number of times on the Dirty Mind Tour club dates in Spring 1981. The track sounds like a spontaneous band number, but was in fact recorded by Prince on his own.
