What's your favorite Duran Duran song?
My favorite songs by Duran Duran, just of the top of my head, since I have just recently listened to them are two covers "White Lines" and "I Want to take you higher" and an original of theirs "GIrls on Film.:https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ah4f62bYAcwhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/Dwv_d-BW6rEhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/KCjMZMxNr-0
Love love love girls on film
Well, who does not love that one line "Smile, you just made a million!" I wish I could make a million of my smile...
THAT WAS MY FAVORITE FAVORITE MUSICAL GROUP IN THE 80`S. I HAD MY ROOM PLASTERED WITH BILLBOARDS OF THEM. I USE TO BUYALL T HE MAGAZINES WHERE THEY WERE FEATURED, RECORD ALL THEIR VIDEOS ON VHS IF POSSIBLE. ANYTHING RELATED TO THEM I HAD TO HAVE IT. SO I DONT HAVE A FAV SONG. maybe the reflex could be my fav song
Holy smokes! And finally someone chooses Reflex lol
I’ve heard of the artists but never listened to their songs. Maybe I shall.
Yes try Come Undone and Ordinary World
I'm a long-time Duran Duran fan, and as such, it's hard for me to choose that one song that I would call my favorite of them.
However, when I look back at how I got into Duran Duran in first place, it's easy to say that my favorite song by them is RIO.
Why? Well, my ex-girlfriends name was, not other than RIO! I met her at student exchange program and was in relationship with her for about 4 months. We had to break up as she was leaving my country as student exchange program was over.
It was good 4 months indeed.
Can you still listen to that song without thinking of her
Got too many. The one we were singing in the hood was "Rio".
Any "Tears for Fears" fans out there? We were shinging "Shout" all summer long back in the 80s.
Yes i love Tears for Fears! And Softcell!
I do too, but 80's modern rock/new wave/synth pop is what I listen to more than anything else. Having said that, I've been a DJ for 35 years and I have 25,000 hit songs on my phone, so chances are if you like a song, I have it. From Frank Sinatra, early Rock & Roll, Motown, Classic Rock, R&B, Funk, Disco, Rock, Metal, Alternative, and even really early Rap, to today's stuff (though in my opinion music completely died about 2015, and there's been almost nothing since then I care to listen to).
There's not a lot that's danceable out these days, and what does exist usually has too slow of a beat, and almost everything released has 27 layers of reverb - except songs that have 54 layers of reverb - and it sounds like one big smear. All of the fun, danceable pop songs just evaporated.
I'll get older teens requesting a song, and I'll play it, and it mostly clears the dance floor, so I know it's not just me. But I put on some Michael Jackson or some 70s Funk and or some mid-2000s stuff like Nelly and the dance floor is packed.
Initially Hungry Like the Wolf was my favorite but as I listened to their music more the "wow" factor of that song wore off a bit and today my favorite is a tie between "Rio" and "Save a Prayer".
You dont like Come Undone 🥺
I quite like Wild Boys.https://www.youtube.com/embed/M43wsiNBwmo
I started to list that one
Duran Duran - Hungry Like the Wolf (Official Music Video) 💞https://www.youtube.com/embed/oJL-lCzEXgI
Hungry like the wolf was good. Rio is a banger. Not really a fan of duran duran overall tho.
Dang you missin out ;-)
I’m only familiar with Hungry like the wolf. Not so familiar with the others.
Aww try Come Undone :)
You liked it?
I'll be an ultra-pleb and say Hungry Like the Wolf. But Rio gets special mention for being part of the namesake of my dog.
Haha you gotta sing the song to him
Hungry Like A Wolf.
It, and Rio, are the only songs I recognize!
Play Come Undone. Its in a lot of movies
And now Ordinary World haha
I recognized that one as well. It's odd that you're 26. Well, I wish I'd have had the chance to know you when I was 34. Instead, at that age I was wasting my time with another young woman your same age. That ended in a mess- two marriage proposals and my being turned down twice.
In any case. I'm NOT hitting on you. It only shows how timing is everything.
Yea my grandparents played a lot of 40s-70s around me and my mom played a lot of 80s+. So i get to enjoy every genre :)
Rio, Hungry Like the Wolf, New Moon on Monday, Save a Prayer.
If it was Friday, i’d be up all night dancing and singing these
I've always loved that one because of some commercial that played later when i was a kid. I used to dance around to it haha
Lmao i def consider them gay but i love their music 🤣
Ordinary World is one of the greatest songs of all time. Red also did a really good cover of that song.
Yes that one and Come Undone. Red? Simply Red?
@DizzyDesii Yeah; that's the name of a band.
My mom loves them. But i prefer Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes singing “If You Dont Know Me By Now. I love he screams in pain
That is a great one!
Looove it! I have their cd
I never really listened to them but I do remember every song you listed. My rock music radio station didn't play Duran duran
Oh i see
I have never been a fan of Duran Duran, but I have no reason why.
Some massive hits and a Bond song
True! They had my least fave bond song but i still love them
The Reflex , Girls on Film , and A View to a Kill , used to hear them on the radio often in the 80s
Love Girls on Film
Tbh I don't know any but I chose girls on film cuz I like the title 🙈
Lol i like the song haha. Check out tjteir song Come Undone above
Damn that's old school. Like before you were even born.
A lot of the artists i like are 40s-80s music. But i love music today as well
I can't even remember the name of the songs they had.
Look at the five videos i posted
The one in the middle
I enjoy the classics like "Rio" and " hungry like a wolf".
Yes i love those too
They had a LOT of good ones, but my favorite is New Moon On Monday ->.https://www.youtube.com/embed/cKDwbiQNWpk
'Save A Prayer' (1982) is my favorite DD ;) song.
Hungry like the wolf.
Most Helpful Opinions
Rio, no question. John Taylor's baseline is fantastic and it's just a great song overall.
The whole band is extremely talented and quite unique - Nick Rhodes, for example, is widely influential as a keyboard player, with anyone interested in synths paying attention to what he's done. Simon can't always sing in tune, but he makes it work and he's a great writer.
I liked their mostly forgotten club hit I Don't Want Your Love a lot, and everything from the first 3 albums. Save A Prayer had some great Nick Rhodes synths. New Moon On Monday was a big favorite of the girls when it came out, being very romantic.
Just a great band and I was fortunate to see them twice.
Ill have to checkout Dont Want Your Love
And this is one I played for a while at DJ gigs, from 2004's Astronaut:
These weren't nearly as impactful as their early stuff or the Wedding Album, but I still like them and they're good songs for dancing.
Oh yea not crazy about it
I like the second but not the dont want your love
"I like the second but not the dont want your love"
I get it. It was very fresh and different when it came out - and didn't seem very "Duran Duran" - and it hasn't aged well, but you'd like it more if you'd heard it at the time. Since you didn't (couldn't!), I completely get that it doesn't work for you. But Sunrise is a bit more universal, and sounds a bit more Duran Duran, so even though it wasn't a huge hit, it's more accessible.
I love a lot of their 80s hits but their 90s songs gives an r&b rock vibe that i just love
