Yuck!! September 1st :(
With a heavy heart and a somber mood I select a song for summer days gone by.. when beautiful blanketing warm weather escapes us into a ghostly chill complete with grey sky’s, breezy avenues, and once lush foliage nature literally dying around us. Deep-deep sigh complete with tears :(
“Save A Prayer” was one of the crowning singles released off Duran’s legendary Rio album back in ’82. A power ballad of sorts with it’s distinctive synthesizer parts and that anthem like guitar, it endures as a song of sympathy and reflection, even though some of it’s lyrical content may have a sinister slant.
Presented here is the “video mix” which is the longest version of the original studio cut in circulation. I can only imagine that all other versions of this song, be it the single as well as the actual album mix, were nothing more than edits from this mix. Therefore this will be regarded as the definitive in my book!
