Coca-Cola is an unreleased track recorded in Autumn 1992, presumably at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (the track was filed at the Library of Congress on 22 October 1992). It is believed that the track was written as a theme for the Coca-Cola Company, and most likely in particular for their Coca-Cola soft drink (the Coca-Cola Company sponsored the Act II Tour in 1993). The track's lyrics indicate that it was recorded for a commercial (including "Life is exciting, oh yeah, but when you’ve got the real thing, it's better. Coca-Cola, go get some, it’s the real thing. Always Coca-Cola."), but the track is not known to have been used commercially, although the phrase "Always Coca-Cola" was used widely in marketing campaigns beginning in 1993; this phrase was likely given to Prince to use, however, rather than being originated by him.
