You Remind Me Of Me is an unreleased instrumental track by Grand Central, a band consisting of Prince, André Anderson, Charles 'Chazz' Smith, Linda Anderson and William Doughty. The song, composed by André Anderson, was initially put to reel-to-reel tape in late 1974 at the Cookhouse Studios, Minneapolis, Minnesota with Pepé Willie overseeing.

The 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. These four songs are the first to be recorded by Prince in a studio. He would later return to the Cookhouse Studios to record songs for Pepé Willie’s 94 East project the following year.

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.'"

It is not known if You Remind Me Of Me was later considered for inclusion on any project. Other sessions with Grand Central (now Grand Central Corporation with Morris Day on drums replacing Charles 'Chazz' Smith) and André Anderson took place in early 1976 at ASI Studio, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
