“New Moon On Monday” – Duran Duran
You know, when you take a look at Duran Duran’s list of singles, it’s pretty solid. It was easy to hate on them, because they wore makeup and dressed fancy and made use of synthesizers as much as guitars. But you have to admit, they had a terrific run of songs from 1982-1986 (In the US) with a nice mini-comeback in 1993.
I’ve said before, to some other lovers of 80s music, that this might be the most underrated of DD songs. You don’t think of it as quickly as you do “Hungry Like The Wolf” or “Rio.” It wasn’t as big of a hit as “The Reflex.” But I think it’s just as good as any of those songs.
