"Pink Cashmere"

"Pink Cashmere" is a song by Prince,[1] written for his then-girlfriend, Anna Fantastic (Anna Garcia), for her 18th birthday. The song references the actual gift he presented to her, a coat made of pink cashmere with a black mink collar and cuff, the name Anna Fantastic embroidered on the sleeve, and "89" on the back. The coat was valued at $15,000, being custom made by his personal staff designer. The song is emulated by Beck in "Debra".

In the U.S., the B-side was the 1978 track, "Soft and Wet", while Germany backed the song with the William Orbit remix of "The Future", originally issued as a single in 1990. In addition, Germany issued a 12" single and CD single for "Pink Cashmere". Both had the 1988 song "Glam Slam" as a B-side, and both contained two mixes of "Pink Cashmere", a vocal version and a guitar version. The 12" had "The Future" remix, but the CD replaced it with the 1985 song "Paisley Park".
