Good Man is an unreleased song recorded in early July 1989, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as Whistlin' Kenny and Bed Of Roses). It was written by Levi Seacer, Jr. & Rosie Gaines and intended for use by Flash / MC Flash (both band names were used), and Billy Franze recorded lead vocal overdubs (replacing Prince's own) fairly soon after the initial recording, while Margie Cox added background vocals on 9 July 1989, also at Paisley Park Studios. It was included as the fifth track on the Flash album as the only track on the album to feature lead vocals by someone other than Margie Cox, but the album was ultimately abandoned.

The track is an upbeat stripped-down track featuring a more electronic sound than the rest of the album, with a drum machine, keyboard motifs and hard electric guitar.
