Duran Duran's Save a Prayer & U2's Salome

I was listening to Salome (Zooromancer mix) today and realized that right about the time Bono says 'alright now', the tune that starts playing is almost exactly the same as Duran Duran's Save A Prayer. Ripped off?

The high pitched keyboard thing? It sounds like a similar effect but the tune is much faster.

Listening to Save A Prayer right now. It's slower I admit but sounds exactly like the end of the Zooromancer mix.

We need a couple of those polygraph things so we can compare the wiggly lines. .

i was out, fancy that!

okay, this has been tackled before by dd.com's webmistress, katy (not me, unfortunately, lol):
Hi Katy-This is a question for Nick or anyone in the band.
On U2's 'The Best Of...' double disc set there's a song called 'Salome (Zooromancer Remix)' and at the end of the song, the keyboard part is taken directly from 'Save A Prayer'.* I know members of DURAN DURAN and U2 are friends and I'm wondering if DURAN DURAN has heard it and what they think of it?* Oh, and PLEASE come to Cincinnati on your tour, I love your music! Thanks JT Irby

HI JT. THE BAND DID KNOW - AND WERE QUITE FLATTERED! WHILE IT ISN'T 100% 'SAVE A PRAYER" (ACCORDING TO NICK), IT IS VERY VERY CLOSE. BONO TOLD THE BAND IT WAS U2'S TRIBUTE TO DURAN DURAN!

"U2's Tribute To Duran Duran"?

I think my brain just exploded!!!

But thinking of it, "Salome" DOES sound a bit Duranesque...
