"Sunrise" is a song by English musical group Simply Red. It was released in March 2003 as the first single from the album Home. It peaked at number-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.[1]

Content[edit]

The song contains samples of Hall & Oates's 1981 smash hit "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" and incorporates some of the same lyrics.

Video[edit]

The main success of "Sunrise" was due in part to the sensual video being shot on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. It was filmed in February 2003 at a house designed by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
