I’m familiar with the title track (today’s SOTD), ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’ and ‘Save a Prayer’ but that’s it. The videos for those songs earned heavy rotation in MTV’s early days, helping propel the band to stateside success.
I loved ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’ but by appreciation of the British New Wave band pretty much started and ended there.
Duran Duran is one of the most successful and best-loved bands on this list, and one of the artists I wish I’d been more into at the time. I find myself really enjoying their songs now when I happen upon them and I wonder how it is they slipped past my radar back in the early to mid-80s. I suppose I can blame that on my sister, Amy, through whom I was exposed to most music back then (funny how it works the other way now).
