    The Lyrics Sank In...

    My  favourite Duran Duran songs are "ordinary day" and "Come Undone". I still play it over and over, never gets old! And there is a reason why "comeUndone" is also a very important song for me. I met my husband while I was listening to it online, he was doing the same. We...

    Its The Music Not The Guys

    as a kid sure I thought they were so cute and hot and sexy but now its just the music i like. the band has matured and gone through the whole ups and downs of music business crap and survived. I like the wedding album, notorious and the early years stuff. I like the song "do...

    Wild Boys!

    I was a teen-ager in the late 80s and I was a huge, huge fan of Duran Duran!! I had their posters hanging from the walls in my room, their photos on the table: I was in love with the drummer Roger Taylor! :) But they were handsome guys really, apart from the excess...

    True Duranie...

    I've been a Duranie since I was 13, Simon was plastered all over my bedroom walls and I glued myself to MTV and Friday Night Videos to catch a 3-4 minute glimpse of them in action.  As a kid it was all about teenage hormone lust, borderline obsessive...it was scary. I loved...

    Yeah

    I know it's the thing now to look down on Duran Duran, and other similar bands from the 80s.I don't care.  I still like 'em.   Life would have been so boring without them and without the 80s.  The only thing I dislike are the current batch of adverts.... "Get their greatest...

    Love 'em

    As a teenager, I wasn't a huge fan of them, but really liked some of their songs.  When I met my husband, he told me that he was a huge fan of them, so I got introduced to a lot of their more obscure tunes.  He sees them every time they're in town, so I began to see...

    I am a late bloomer in the Duranie department. I had an older sister who loved them in the early 80's and was a member of their club, had all the current records and had posters all on her walls from Teen Beat and BOP magazines. When the Thank You album came out, that is when...

    I've listened to D2 since they first came to American radio in 1982. I have remained a loyal fan through it all, even when I was the last straight man in my state to still like them. They are incredibly talented musicians and Nick Rhodes has always been an idol of mine in my own...

    One Of My Favorite Groups....

    I saw them at the Patriot Center several years ago and they were as good live as they sounded in the album. Some of my favorite songs are Planet Earth, Girls on Film, Hungry Like the Wolf and Sunrise. Love you Duran Duran.
