"Interlude One" is an instrumental by Duran Duran, released on the album Big Thing by Capitol-EMI on 18 October 1988.

About the instrumentalEdit

This is the first of two short interludes that break up the Big Thing album, although "Interlude One" was previously over a minute long during recording sessions.

If the interlude is slowed down, not only does the sound change dramatically, but Simon Le Bon can be heard singing in the background. What he is singing or why the song was sped up remains unknown.
