"Rope" is an unreleased instrumental by Duran Duran, recorded during demo sessions for the album Notorious in 1986.

About the instrumental[]

Written by Duran Duran, the instrumental wasn't included on the final version of Notorious.

This is one of three tracks recorded at the beginning of the Notorious demo sessions that are named after Alfred Hitchcock thriller films. The other two are "Notorious" and "Vertigo".

The first day of the demo recordings began on 19 June 1986 at London's Westside Studios. Work also continued at several other London studios (Abbey Road, Maison Rouge, Skyline, and AIR Studios).

"Rope" was recorded using only bass, keyboards and a drum machine because neither Andy Taylor or Warren Cuccurullo had arrived at the beginning of these recording sessions.

The track is the original name given to the song "Hold Me", released on the Notorious album. There are various unofficial albums that include "Rope", such as the Westside Demos and Dance Into The Fire.
