Duran Duran was the biggest band in the world from '82-'84. They were made for MTV and they took full advantage of it, leading the way of the second British invasion. I remember when "The Reflex" won Friday Night Video Fights for ten straight weeks. I never saw them at their peak, but I did get to see them at Concord, CA when "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone" brought them back to the mainstream. It was the most fun I've ever had at a concert. The energy was incredible, everyone was dancing and singing along with every last song. As for my favorites, they would be: 1) The Reflex, 2) Hold Back The Rain, 3) Too Much Information, 4) Hungry Like The Wolf, 5) A View To A Kill.
All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.
Bite your tongue. Duran Duran kills Wham! and anything George Michael ever put out
Going to have to respectfully disagree. George Michael has an incredible voice. It sounds the same in concert as it does in the studio. And once he got away from producers who wanted him on MTV, his music became much more introspective. "Listen Without Prejudice" was an incredible album. It may have been a commercial failure, but it was an artistic masterpiece.
Honest question...are there really five good Duran Duran songs to rank? Im not hating, I just don't know much about them and havent heard more than one or two of their songs.
Well, this thread is filled with honest answers, yes there are.
I've got a Misfits avatar, Black Flag tattoo, every Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath record and I really do dig the songs I mentioned. Their self titled debut record and Rio are legit. You should check them out.
