1982 Album Features "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Save A Prayer"!

Originally released in 1982, Rio was the second studio album by Duran Duran. The album peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the US in March 1983 and remained on the chart for 129 weeks.

By the end of 1980, Duran Duran had become popular within the burgeoning new romantic circuit in England and had secured a record contract with EMI. "Planet Earth," the band's first single, quickly rose to number 12 upon its spring 1981 release. Immediately, Duran Duran became the leaders of the new romantic movement, becoming media sensations in the British music and mainstream press. The group's popularity increased through its cutting-edge music videos, especially the bizarre, racy clip for "Girls on Film." Although the BBC banned the Godley & Creme-directed video, the single became the group's first Top Ten hit, setting the stage for the fall release of its eponymous debut album. Duran Duran reached number three upon its release and stayed in the charts for 118 weeks.

The band quickly followed the album with Rio in the spring of 1982. Rio entered at number two on the UK Albums Chart, and its singles -- "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Save a Prayer" -- became Top Ten hits.

"The original Duran Duran's high point, and just as likely the band's as a whole, its fusion of style and substance ensures that even two decades after its release it remains as listenable and danceable as ever...From start to finish, a great album that has outlasted its era." -Ned Raggett,
