Duran Duran top 5 songs
1. Ordinary world
The track appears on the band’s self-titled 1993 album, better known as “The Wedding Album”. The single is about the death of Simon Le Bon’s friend David Miles in 1986.
2. Hungry like the wolf
Released in 1982, the song was the band’s breakthrough hit in the US.
It was covered by many groups like Cranial Screwtop, Reel Big Fish, Hole and 5 Seconds of Summer.
The clip, shot in the Sri Lanka city of Galle, was loosely based on the movie Apocalypse Now with the rest of the band searching for Simon Le Bon in an exotic locale.

“Come undone” is the second single from the album “The Wedding Album”. Frontman Simon Le Bon called this “a song for anyone who is falling in love for the first time, ’cause when you come, you come undone.”
4. Save a prayer
Recorded in early 1982 at AIR Studios, London, the track is a stunning pop ballad taken from the band’s second album “Rio”.
It went to No 2 in the UK and Ireland, and No 1 in France.
The music video was filmed by Australian director Russell Mulcahy among the jungles, beaches, and temples of Sri Lanka.
5. A view to a kill
Written by Duran Duran and John Barry, the track was the theme song to the 1985 James Bond movie of the same name starring Roger Moore and Grace Jones.
It was recorded at Maison Rouge Studio and CTS Studio in London with a 60-piece orchestra.
