Duran Duran have to be one of the greatest bands of the 80s. They are also one of the most unintentionally hilarious bands of the 1980s. It’s hard for me not to giggle whilst writing this frankly. The seriousness with which they commit themselves to their music is amusing; these are guys who wrote the song Save A Prayer, a blow for blow detailing of the most boring romance ever.
The reason this song makes me laugh is thanks to one couplet in the second verse; “You wanted to dance/so I asked you to dance/but fear is in your soul.” Sorry, I’ll be right back, I’m crying with overdramatic laughter. Oh Simon Le Bon, how can anyone not love you?
