Still Would Stand All Time is the 15th track on Prince's twelfth album Graffiti Bridge. The song also features in the movie Graffiti Bridge.

Basic tracking took place on 6 October 1988 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during two days off from the Lovesexy Tour, between shows in Toronto, ON, Canada and Hampton, VA, USA, on the same day as Elephants & Flowers).

The original version featured Prince on background vocals, but vocal overdubs by The Steeles were added at some point in 1989 or early 1990. The original version was initially included on a configuration of the Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic album, dated 27 October 1988, and was included as the eighth track on the late 1988 - early 1989 configuration.

At one point in early 1989 it was considered for the Batman album, but was replaced by Scandalous. It was not included on a late 1989 configuration of Graffiti Bridge, but replaced The Grand Progression as the 15th track on a 1990 configuration of the album, where it remained for release.

Prince had begun performing the song live before its initial recording, even teaching the band the song on the spot during the 19 August 1988 (a.m.): Paard van Troje, the Hague, the Netherlands one-off concert.
