A Duran Duran Plea

Dish is determined to walk down the aisle to Duran Duran's "Rio." But of course, it should be instrumental and slower. If anyone knows of such a version of "Rio," please comment and point me in the right direction!

After 26 years of full-on obsession, I deserve to have that music playing when I'm about to get married, n'est-ce pas? Picture it: a swanky NYC venue, lots of unsuspecting family and friends waiting for appropriate music until strains of a familiar, much more fun song as I walk down the aisle. TG and family might be mortified but I am only doing this once. This is the only issue that will make me a bridezilla.

I will reward the winning helper with a copy of my 50-page typed high school term paper on the band.

hi
i found it by chance.
first, congratulations.
i did not heard of a slow rio version, but since the song is written around the bass line (which is a sort of a walking base) you can make your own arrangment.
if you strip the song to its core ir is a jazzi frank sinatra style song.
so with the right band you can make it a suitable song.

hope this will be a start for a good life as married.

Thanks for your good wishes and this great idea, Ron! If only I were at all gifted at music I could do all this on a Mac, I'm sure.
