“The Chauffeur” is a Duran Duran song from their second album Rio. The song was written by Simon Le Bon as poetry, several years before Rio was even begun. Two different versions of the song were originally recorded by Duran Duran, and the song has been covered by three mainstream artists. Two music videos of the song have been made at different times, by different directors. Unusually for the band, the song’s title does not appear anywhere in the song’s lyrics, but the refrain from the song has been used by Duran Duran as the title of both a tour video and a book.

Song lines: ♪ And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind the front of your dress all shadowy lined ... And the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart ... Sing blue silver
