Palomino Pleasure Ride is an unreleased song, presumably from 1985. The track was mentioned in a note Prince wrote to actress Jackie Swanson, who also appeared in the Raspberry Beret video. His note reads:

Dear Jackie,

Are u well today? I hope so. I am in Minnesota rehearsing 4 a World tour. I made a song about u and I sing it before every Tuesday’s rehearsal. It’s a cute little ditty entitled “Palamino Pleasure Ride”.
Please send me pictures of u, I miss your smile. I am very happy now and I hope u are 2.
Love God.


It is however unclear if any song with that title was ever recorded in the studio.

  • In his note Prince writes the title as Palamino, which is assumed to be a slip of the pen of 'Palomino', the breed of horse that is pale cream to gold in color with a flaxen or white mane and tail. The song’s title is therefore very likely Palomino Pleasure Ride
