The Glamorous Life" was intended for the 1984 album Apollonia 6, but Prince redistributed it (along with "Manic Monday," which went to The Bangles), as he lost interest in Apollonia 6. The group was originally Vanity 6, fronted by the Prince protégé Vanity (Denise Matthews). When she pulled out of the Purple Rain film, Prince replaced her with Patricia Kotero, whom he dubbed "Apollonia" and made the new face of the group. This song peaked in the US in October 1984, giving Sheila E. a solid hit when she joined Prince on the Purple Rain tour a month later. Phil Collins cited this as an influence on the Genesis hit "Invisible Touch," which is about girl who holds a mysterious power over a man. This was used in the 1984 movie Protocol and also in the 1985 first-season episode of Miami Vice, "The Home Invaders. In 2006, it was used in the "Lose the Boss?" episode of Ugly Betty.
