Fuchsia Light is an unreleased track recorded on 15 April 1988 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track was recorded for possible use on Tony LeMansPaisley Park Records 1989 album Tony LeMans, and at some point between mid-1988 and early 1989, Tony LeMans recorded lead vocal overdubs, but the song was not included on the release; Prince is believed to have pulled the song after returning from the Lovesexy Tour upon discovering that LeMans was having an affair with Ingrid Chavez. Prince and Tony LeMans had also worked on a song in 1986, called C’est La Vie which also was not kept for the album.

The song’s theme of a colored light being used during the act of lovemaking was later used in Blue Light, but the tracks are otherwise unrelated. Prince also reused a phrase from the track, "monogamy and trust", in the b-side Sex, but this should not be considered a quote or reference to this song.
