Save a Prayer is the sixth single by Duran Duran, released on 9 August 1982.
The soft, seductive ballad was the third single from the band's second album Rio. It became Duran Duran's biggest hit to date (at the time) in the UK Singles Chart, reaching #2, held out of the top spot by Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger".
It was not originally issued as a single in the United States, although the video was very popular on MTV. However, a live version from the Arena album was released in January 1985 and reached #16 on the Billboard Hot 100. .
