Goodbye is an unreleased track recorded on 31 December 1991, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Although the formal artist credit isn’t known, songs from this recording period were released under the name Prince and the New Power Generation, so that credit is used for this entry.

Goodbye is an eclectic song going through multiple tempos and styles. It features Tony M. rapping and singing the chorus (with Prince): “All fair in love and war and only love is worth dying for.” The song is completely unrelated to the later recorded Goodbye, that was originally titled (Excuse Me Is This) Goodbye.

The song was one of the Vault tracks recorded between 1990 and 1992 slated to appear on the planned Diamonds & Love expected to be released by The Prince Estate in the summer of 2022. That project, which consisted of material spanning both the Diamonds And Pearls and eras, was reduced to the Diamonds And Pearls era, excluding songs recorded after October 1991 (and this track as a result).
