Boom, Boom (Can't U Feel The Beat Of My Heart) is a song by Jill Jones streamed as a video only in the 'Cyberclips' room of the NPG Music Club beginning 12 May 2006 (on the same day as the Fury video). No audio version of the track has been released.

The song was initially song recorded in Summer 1982 at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (along with several other tracks that would re-appear over the next several years). Somewhere in 1986 Prince revamped, recording Jill Jones vocals on it for possibly use on the Jill Jones album. It was placed on a November ’86 configuration of that album as fifth track following Rough and segueing into My Man, but (with Rough) was left off the final configuration.

In the summer of 1989 the track was revamped completely with new instrumentation and Jill Jones re-cutting her vocals at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, for possible use on the proposed second album by Jill Jones (along with My Baby Knows, from the same sessions, and Flesh And Blood and possibly Am I Without U?). The video clip produced for the song at this point, indicates that it may have been intended as the first single from the album. The project was abandoned as Prince and Jill Jones disagreed on the direction of the album, with Jill Jones wanting to sing more mature songs than Prince was providing.
