Not to be confused with Rhapsody of Fire (formerly known as Rhapsody), an Italian symphonic power metal band.

Rhapsody was an Australian female duo of Kymberlie Harrison and Cathy Ford. They had a minor hit (No. 95 on the ARIA singles chart) in the early 1990s called "Cowboy Lover" on BMG Records.

After the promoter and record label owner Gene Pierson's success with the soap opera actor Melissa Tkautz, who had a No. 1 hit in 1991 as Melissa, he came up with the concept for Rhapsody, styling the two models and creating the song that gave them success.

"Cowboy Lover" was originally a slow reggae song, but was remixed into a dance track by Filthy Lucre, famous for their dance remix of Yothu Yindi's "Treaty".

Prior to Rhapsody, Kymberlie Harrison was a producer for Melissa's hits "Read My Lips" and "(Sexy) Is The Word".

At the height of their popularity the duo posed in Playboy magazine, making the cover of the August 1993 edition.
