This entry details a video for the song Zannalee. The videos for 18 & Over, Zannalee and Empty Room (shot in late 1994, around the same time as the videos for The Same December and I Like It There) were completed by Prince (then SymbolSmallerBlue.png) and date-stamped on December 22nd 1994. At the time, all three tracks were unreleased: Zannalee was later released on Chaos And Disorder (in 1996), 18 & Over on Crystal Ball (in 1998) and a live version of Empty Room was included on C-Note (in 2004). The three videos were premiered on the The Ultimate Live Experience Tour in March 1995, when they were screened prior to the concerts along with video dips of The Same December, The NPG’s Get Wild and Mayte’s If EyeBlue.png ♥ U 2night. The three videos were also shown at The New Power Generation Stores in Minneapolis and London and at the Glam Slam nightclubs, but they were never released to any television stations. They were also not used in promotion of Chaos And Disorder or Crystal Ball. A single, loosely knit storyline takes place in the three videos, which run for over 10 minutes.

The story that began in 18 & Over continues in the Zannalee video (which features the original version of the song which was slightly revamped for Chaos And Disorder). In it, SymbolSmallerBlue.png is pictured touring Minneapolis with two girls who look like twins interspersed with scenes of The NPG (Michael B. and Sonny T. only) performing the song with him playing a black symbol guitar. SymbolSmallerBlue.png takes the two girls to his home to have dinner and, follwing the lyrics of the song, pours glasses of "cherry wine" for them, watch a movie (the 1986 erotic french film Betty Blue), and play pool. SymbolSmallerBlue.png is then seen following the girls upstairs, only to find them sleeping soundly in his bed. He enters his bathroom, where the Empty Room video starts.

Some footage from this video were included in the 95 Tour Wallpaper video.
