Feel Better, Feel Good, Feel Wonderful (incorrectly listed on the album’s rear cover as Feel Good, Feel Better, Feel Wonderful) is the sixth track on Prince’s 33rd studio album Lotusflow3r. The song was initially previewed in an early form as a 1:25 fade-out edit in June 2006, on the NPG Music Club a week before the website closed permanently, in a new section known as "Fresh From The Studio", including an option for leaving comments/criticisms to help Prince to finish the track (the only time this section was used). The page included the note: "Fresh from the studio, take a listen 2 a taste of a new demo from Prince, Feel Better, Feel Good, Feel Wonderful, recorded this past week at Paisley Park. All instruments and vox by Prince. It’s still being worked on and we'd like 2 hear some feedback from U. What’s missing? What would U do 2 make it better?" The album version is a re-recording, or features drastic overdubs, but the structure of the first section of the song remains the same. In October 2009, a live version, recorded for a short radio gig in Paris, France, was released as an mp3 download on Lotusflow3r.com, known simply as Feel Better, Feel Good.

The early version of the song was recorded on 23 June, 2006 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same session as All This Love). The track was worked on further on 1 September, 2008 at Sunset Sound. Hollywood, California.
