"Thieves In The Temple" is a song by Prince from the 1990 soundtrack album, Graffiti Bridge. Added at the last minute, it was the last song recorded for the album in January 1990 and became a top-10 hit in the US. It was the only bright point of the rather lackluster album and movie.

"Thieves In The Temple" has a unique sound, starting quietly with echoed keyboards and vocals before the main section of the song booms in with a pulsating synth bass, syncopated drum machines, Middle Eastern melodies and opera-like layered vocals. Prince even provides harmonica, his first time since Raspberry Beret. The vocals are emotional and accuse the subject of rejecting Prince and lying to him. The "temple" in the title recalls the ever-present spirituality in many of Prince's songs. The 12" remix contain extended lyrics that continue the theme before diverging into more dance oriented material. It has been suggested that drum machine programming be merged into this article or section. ...
