Y Should Eye Do That When Eye Can Do This? (later known as Y Should Eye.png Do That When Eye.png Can Do This?) was initially heard as a 1:32 excerpt streaming on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 1 June 2000, along with excerpts of Splash and Cybersingle. In June 2001, it was released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition # 5 as an mp3 download (credited to Prince, despite having been recorded and initially heard while Prince used the name SymbolSmallerBlue.png). In 2004, it was included (as Y Should Eye.png Do That When Eye.png Can Do This?) as the third track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded during sessions for Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, corroborated by The Hornheadz, who recorded horns for the track on 17 May 1999 (during the same session as horn overdubs for Hot Wit U, Man'O'War, I Ain't Gonna Run and R U Ready?).
