You Remind Me Of Me is an unreleased track performed live and recorded in 1974 by Grand Central, a band consisting of Prince, André Anderson, Charles Smith, Linda Anderson and William Doughty, with Pepé Willie overseeing. The reel-to-reel recording-session was a result of winning a North Commons Park battle-of-the-band contest, where the prize was $75 and 8 hours recording time at the Cookhouse Studios. Other songs recorded in the session were Whenever, It’s Too Late and Love Unlimited’s instrumental Love’s Theme.

It is not known if the track was later considered for inclusion on any project, although it was not one of the six tracks recorded in the studio by the band in 1976.

Pepé Willie later discussed working with the group to improve their performance of the song. "The problem was that they weren’t singing together. So I made them put down their instruments and being that Prince was the most talented at that time as far as playing the guitar, I would have him play guitar chords and get... them all sing together. Because they would all be singing something different, like André would sing 'you remind me of me,' Morris would be going 'you remind me of she,' and William or Linda would be going 'you remind me of them.'"
