Duran Duran is going strong in the 21st century with a new album, live performances, appearances and more.
While the new music is awesome, the band's songs and videos from the 1980s will always bring back wonderful memories for me and they never get old.
Here are a few of my favorite Duran Duran songs and videos from the 80s.
Duran Duran were amongst the earliest bands to work on their own remixes. Before the days of digital synthesizers and easy audio sampling they created multilayered arrangements of their singles, sometimes recording entirely different extended performances of the songs in the studio.
Duran Duran ended up being much more new wave than rock and roll, and much more cerebral in their song development than their contemporaries.
They were from a technical perspective solid music artists with a lead vocalist songwriter possessed of a flair for the dramatic and they dominated the MTV roost for many years.
The mid 1980's saw the band splinter into two distinct groups, Arcadia and Power Station, but neither of them experienced the outrageous success the original five-some did.
