Make Believe is an unreleased track first recorded in mid-late March 1992 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as I’ll Do Anything, My Little Pill and a re-recording of Empty Room). The song was written specifically for the James L. Brooks movie I’ll Do Anything. Using the horn arrangements also used on Black M.F. In The House, the track was re-recorded in mid-April 1992 at Platinum Studios, Melbourne, Australia (while on the Diamonds And Pearls Tour, during the same set of sessions as Don’t Talk 2 Strangers, Poor Little Bastard, The Rest Of My Life, There Is Lonely, Be My Mirror, Wow and a re-recording of I’ll Do Anything).
The track was re-recorded both by actress Julie Kavner and by the ensemble cast for the movie, and was weaved into the movie at three different points during a rough cut of the movie. One of these versions (most likely the Julie Kavner version, although this is unconfirmed) was included as the second track on a planned I’ll Do Anything album. While Prince was not directly involved in this version, it is included in the listing here as his own version remains unreleased and was intended as a demo for the soundtrack version. When preview audience reactions to the music were overwhelmingly negative, all production numbers from the film were cut, and the album was abandoned. The song remains unreleased.
