The Reflex - because I was in 9th grade, and first heard it at a club in Chicago while doing cocaine. I was let into the club without I.D. because I was with an "older" guy (probably only about 24, but he seemed so old at the time). I fell in love with Duran Duran that night - not knowing they had been huge for several years.

Ordinary World to me is different from all their other songs, I didn't realize it was even them when I first heard it.

I love every single song on their new album... they're so catchy.

Of all time, I probably love "The Man Who Stole A Leopard" the most.

"Seven and the Ragged Tiger" had the strongest singles run of any of their albums:

1. "Union of the Snake"

2. "New Moon on Monday"

3. "The Reflex"

I'm with you, R16 -- "Rio" is a fantastic pop song. It defined an era of music. It's perfect.

Re: Nick Rhodes - I know someone has chimed in more than once to claim that at one point Nick Rhodes was having a fling with a male rock star. I want to say it was someone from Motley Crue. Anyone else remember that bit of gossip?

[quote] I want to say it was someone from Motley Crue.

That would be a nasty combination.

I've read that Nick, despite his refined exterior, actually has a coarse sense of humor.

"New Religion" was never a single, but it was my favorite track off the "Rio" album:

R41 Just came back to add this song. It’s lush and gorgeous and the melody is beautiful. And any song that allows John to be featured is a winner.

Yes R3. That's my favorite, too. It's like a dream set to music.

Duran Duran had some fantastic extended versions of their songs. The night version of “Girls on Film” is my favourite.

I remember giving a very hot British daddy head while we were listening to Come Undone.

He lasted the length of the song, but it was a whole vibe. LOL

I really love "The Universe Alone" from the Paper Gods album (that entire album is amazing). Just a great track to end the album. Atmospheric and epic all at once. And the ending... just perfect.

I used to put this album on at bedtime when I was a kid. I was usually out before the end of the first song, American Science, which is still a favorite. Come to think of it, I don't know that I've ever properly listened to side 2 of this record.

R62 Nick was such a sexy little bitch. I love the back-up singers from this era, too. I remember them from the first DD concert I attended as a kid. They did a sexy strip tease behind a screen, during Skin Trade, and you could see their naked silhouettes being naughty as a backdrop during the song. Simon seems a bit off here - looking down a lot, not really into it, lacking charisma. Maybe it was an off day for him.

loved it all. Electric Barbarella deserves mention.
