Say the Word was the fifth and final single released by the Duran Duran offshoot band, Arcadia. Recorded for the soundtrack of Playing for Keeps, it was released as a single in the US by Atlantic Records.

Music video[edit]

The video was an amalgam of previous Arcadia videos, interspersed with scenes from the film.

B-sides, bonus tracks and remixes[edit]

The single's B-side comprised an instrumental version.

The extended mixes on the promo 12" were remixed by Shep Pettibone.

  1. "Say the Word" (Theme from "Playing for Keeps") (LP version) - (4:29)
  2. "Say the Word" (Instrumental Mix) - (4:31)
  • The original version on the "Playing for Keeps" soundtrack has a length of 5:07, the labelling of the A-side on the single release as the "LP version" is a misprint.[1]

7": Atlantic. / PROMO (with blue label) / 7-89370 (US)[edit]

  1. "Say The Word" (Theme from "Playing for Keeps") (LP version) - (4:29)
  2. "Say The Word" (Theme from "Playing for Keeps") (LP version) - (4:29)
  • The original version on the "Playing for Keeps" soundtrack has a length of 5:07, the labelling of the A-side on the single release as the "LP version" is a misprint.[1]

  1. "Say the Word" (Theme from "Playing for Keeps") (LP version) (4:29)
  2. "Say the Word" (Theme from "Playing for Keeps") (Instrumental Mix) (4:29)
  • This Canadian "promo only release" contains a misspressing with an incorrect song, which is instrumental, that has a time of 3:31.
  • According to Nick Rhodes, who listened to the unknown song in January 2009, this track is not Arcadia and it seems as if a pressing plant error caused an unknown artist to be substituted instead of the instrumental Arcadia track, which does actually exist and appears in its correct form on the US 7-inch release.

  1. "Say the Word" (Theme from "Playing for Keeps") (Extended Remix) - (6:39)

Personnel[edit]

Arcadia are[edit]

Various session musicians perform the other instruments, including bass (likely Mark Egan), guitar, and possibly drums, as it is unclear whether Roger Taylor had already left the band prior to the song's recording.
