Something Funky (This House Comes), also known as Something Funky This House Comes and Something This House Funky Comes, is an unreleased song initially recorded in late August 1990, at Warner Pioneer Studios, Tokyo, Japan (during the same set of sessions as Strollin’, Willing And Able, Money Don’t Matter 2 Night and 5 Women). The track was worked on further on 11 September 1990 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same session as Fancy Dancer, Horny Pony, Jughead and The Flow) within hours of returning to the USA from the Nude Tour in Japan.

The track contains a rapped introduction by Tony M. of each member of the band. This pat was updated in the fall of 1990 as Tommy Barbarella wasn’t in the band yet at the time of original tracking.

Something Funky (This House Comes) was included as the eleventh track on the December 1990, configuration of Diamonds And Pearls, but was removed for later configurations, and remains unreleased.
