Around The World In A Day is the first track on Prince's seventh album Around The World In A Day, the second to be credited to Prince and the Revolution.

The track was first written and recorded by David Coleman (Lisa Coleman's brother) in early June 1984, when given two days of studio time at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California as a birthday gift from Prince. When Prince heard the resulting track, he loved it and wanted to include it on his next album. He re-recorded the track and made some musical and lyrical changes.

Basic tracks for Prince's version were recorded on 16 August 1984 at Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

This is the only Prince-related track to give writing credit to David Coleman.
