D.M.S.R. is the fifth track on Prince's fifth album 1999, and, in late 1982, was included as a b-side on the UK 12" release of 1999, the album's first single. In 1983, D.M.S.R. was also released as a the album's third single on 12" vinyl in the UK only. In 1984, an edit of the track was included as the eighth track on the movie soundtrack Risky Business and was included in the movie starring Tom Cruise. In late 1998, the full-length version was included on the re-issue of the 1999 single.
Initial tracking for D.M.S.R. took place at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA on 20 April, 1982, during the same set of sessions which produced Free, Something In The Water (Does Not Compute), Delirious, Automatic and How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore.
When CD technology was created and albums were released on CD, D.M.S.R. was left off the initial releases of 1999 as the time limit on CDs was 74 minutes at the time. As CD capacities increased, however, the track was added to the tracklist again.
