Music: Duran Duran: Save a Prayer for Me

Save a Prayer for Me (1982)  Snippet from the lyrics:  "Don't say a prayer for me now, save it for the morning after."  Beautiful beach scenes of ocean, fisherman on poles lapped by small ocean waves, scenes that look like the Andes, outposts or ritual sites on mountain tops, a reclining Buddha and priests, and Duran Duran getting showered by elephants spouting their trunks, priests and temples and stupas, the band does a modest bow before a giant carved god or no-god, take your pick ... but Save a prayer for the morning after ... you can actually hear the words, even with my bad ears ...
