Notorious


Who’d have thought that Duran Duran would be so enduring? So many of their peers have faded into oblivion, and these guys are still making (good) albums. Yet, it’s actually not that much of a surprise. Besides being the very prettiest of the pretty boys, they also happened to be one of the best new wave bands, and that holds up long after the makeup smears have faded. Good music plus glamour equals memorable. You can dance to it and aspire to the imagery. I can’t pretend that this has a lot of depth or even that it makes any sense, but it rocks, head and shoulders above most everything else that washed ashore in 1986. Also, look for a very young Christy Turlington as one of the scantily clad dancing girls.
