The cover of Duran Duran's classic Rio-era ballad entered the mainstream when Eagles of Death Metal joined the British pop-rock veterans last month for an unexpected performance on Britain’s TFI Friday. The song appeared on Eagles of Death Metal's most recent album, Zipper Down, which peaked at No. 59 on the Billboard 200 in October.
The American rockers were caught up in a massacre in Paris last week when their headline concert at music venue Le Bataclan was targeted by terrorists. Though the band members escaped without serious injury, 87 onlookers were killed including the group’s 36-year-old merchandise manager Nick Alexander.
Organizers of the online campaign “Save a Prayer for U.K. No. 1” say the initiative was a gesture of support for the band and for those affected in the Nov. 13 attacks, in which 129 were killed in a series of incidents across the French capital.
The full Official Singles Chart Top 100 will be published late Friday local time.
