"Mountains" is a 1986 song by Prince and The Revolution, from the album Parade, the soundtrack to the film Under the Cherry Moon.[1] It was written by The Revolution members Wendy & Lisa together with Prince. The extended 12" single version of the song runs ten minutes. It's the only track on the Parade album featuring the entire Revolution.

It reached #23 in the U.S. but only #45 in the UK, according to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles and Albums (19th Edition, 2006) The B-side was the instrumental "Alexa de Paris", one of the few tracks from this project featuring a guitar solo, and is one of a handful of instrumental tracks that Prince recorded in the 1980s. Both songs appear in the film Under the Cherry Moon, with the video for "Mountains" playing as the credits roll. The version shown on MTV to promote the single was in color as opposed to the film's black-and-white version.

Like many Prince songs, "Mountains" focuses on Christian motifs.
