Duran Duran - Save A Prayer (after disco rough edit)

SAP was always one of the Durans best songs, but this mix is new-to-me, and I prefer it. The rhythm just comes out better in this version: it's more driving but also much less obtrusive. The original's cowbell(?) percussion doubling up then giving way to the snare all drew attention to itself in a way that was a little cloying or even pretentious given what it was. So... thanks!

Thanks for the comments, lads. Plague: I had to go back and check the original to know what percussion sounds you were referring to... I think the "cowbell" you mentioned is actually a pretentious rim-shot on the snare drum.

Glad you enjoyed this mix.

For the best article ever written about ther Durans search the "Cosmic Hearse" site for his article on the band. Funniest thing I have ever read published on the internet.
