Duran Duran

Simon Le Bon could deliver a strong vocal, but often out of tune (I recall ‘Is There Something I Should Know?’). But hey this was 1982 and electronic production was now pop art. And what that meant was that you could generally fuse a look with musical substance. ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’ helped turn Duran Duran into the kings of pop music. A dancey, tight, guitar groove and the all-important series of pop hooks – it was so catchy that it didn’t matter that you looked like the Princess of Wales. That doesn’t forgive the pouting Simon. Have a good weekend.
