Camille is believed to be an unreleased song recorded in Summer 1987; a poem titled Camille was included in the initial script of the Graffiti Bridge movie, dated 22 September 1987 (to be recited by Cat, playing a character called "Vienna"), and it is included here as such, although it is not certain that the poem was recorded as a song. The poem references the character Camille used by Prince as a pseudonym on a variety of songs, sung with altered vocals (see the unreleased album Camille for details). The lyrics indicate that the song would have been performed by someone describing Camille, rather than by the character. The song was not included on the unreleased album Camille, which was completed the previous year, and remains unreleased, if indeed it was ever recorded.
