Not to be confused with Rhapsody of Fire (formerly known as Rhapsody), an Italian symphonic power metal band.
Rhapsody were 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 his success with soap opera actor Melissa, who had a No. 1 hit in 1991, promoter and record label owner Gene Pierson 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 Australian artist Melissa Tkautz's hits "Read My Lips" and "(Sexy) Is The Word".
At the height of their popularity the duo also posed in Playboy magazine, making the cover of the August 1993 edition.
