The disc closes with "Strays of the World". Like the opening track, "Interactive", "Strays of the World" was featured in Glam Slam Ulysses and was later planned to be on the Come album.

The generally positive track bears some resemblance to Queen 's " Bohemian Rhapsody " in combining rock with classical styles. The number was tailored for the Glam Slam Ulysses and appears operatic in parts. The song ends with a wild guitar solo and Prince whispering, "Come". The third disc opens with a live version of " Days of Wild ". Punchier than the unreleased studio recording, the funk song is extended by several minutes for instrumental jamming and audience participation.

The song is actually several rap verses against violence, and Prince bragaddociously referring to his musical style. The NPG Operator speaks at the end to introduce the next song — "Welcome to the dawn, you have just accessed The experimental track combines funk and jazz and tells the tale of a man who tells his ex, "If U break my heart one more time, it'll be the last heart U ever break".

A scream of "What am I gonna do? The title refers to the vagina, which apparently Prince can't stop thinking about. The choruses contain a consistent repeat of "poom poom poom The song is an outtake from Emancipation and is a funk number driven by a pulsating drum machine pattern recycled from the song "Big Fun" on NPG's "Exodus" album.

It begins with delicate piano, gradually adding more instruments. Unlike the previously performed version, this one ends with a searing, lengthy guitar solo. The rapped number makes several humorous references to "boning" meaning sex such as "freak U 2 the marrow" and "the Bone Ranger". Following the rap is "The Ride". The blues-fueled song originates from and has been played many times over the years. This recording was from a live performance in and gives Prince the chance to stretch out on a lengthy guitar solo.

At the song's conclusion, it leads immediately into "Get Loose", a mostly instrumental reworking of "Loose" from Come. The only prominent line is "Lemme see that body get loose! Next up is a remix of "P. Control", with the original opening The Gold Experience. The music is jazzy and playful with funky horns from Eric Leeds and Atlanta Bliss. The disc and the album end with "Goodbye", a ballad originally intended for Emancipation.

Sung in falsetto, the song is musically very reminiscent of the other Emancipation ballads. The arrangements are mainly based around the acoustic guitar, augmented with elaborate production effects, multi-layered vocals, and occasional percussion and percussive effects.
