"Jungle Love" is a song from The Time's third album, Ice Cream Castle.
"Jungle Love" is a funk-pop track relying mainly on bass, analog synthesizer and drum machines, although there are elements of new wave keyboards and a rock guitar solo, allowing the song to cross musical boundaries. The track was one of the first songs recorded for the album, being cut in late March 1983 during Prince's 1999 tour.
The track was also one of the first Time tracks to involve other members of the band in the creation of the song. Morris Day and Jesse Johnson both contributed to writing the song. Day provided sexual lead vocals and animalistic sound effects, and Johnson played guitar on the recording, while Prince played all the other instruments.
