    Hate to be "that guy" but Hungry Like the Wolf is just one of the best pop songs ever.

    They aren't GOAT but they are much better than most pop bands. Wild Boys is dope and I have a soft spot for Save a Prayer.

    That video would be better if they just let Hungry Like the Wolf play

    There's a fair number of metalheads, myself included who have a soft spot for Duran Duran in general. They really do have quite a few songs I dig.

    Also, John Taylor may not be Steve Harris, but he's actually a damn good bass player.

    There is no doubt that DD knows what they are doing in terms of music. They are solid...I even like View to a Kill.

    GOAT Bond song?

    I just looked through a list of Bond theme songs and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. Not a lot of really awesome songs, but a lot of unobjectionable, enjoyable, ones.

    My two faves are prolly A View to a Kill and Skyfall.
