1Come Undone

I love every one of the songs on this list! All really good... I love duran duran all of them are adorable... I have to say the reflex should be on here in the top three... Definitely better than hungry like the wolf but not as good as come undone.. The reflex should at least be second it so good and hyped up I absolutely LOVE IT!

3Hungry Like The Wolf

This song made me a fan of duran duran. Simple guitar riff, synth and bass. But still it's the catchiest song of duran duran. And one of the best songs ever made.

Duran Duran is an artist and then there still alive. Hungry Like The Wolf lyrics she said. Hungry Like The Wolf goes Dark in the city, night as wire and then chorus

-Amazing, Duran Duran is so amazing and I can't believe that people don't listen to them or care for them any more and now they listen to rubbish like Ed Sheeran nowadays?

Is the best song, john is sexy😍

4A View to a Kill

A view to a kill one there greatest hits. There first number 1 song in the U.S.A. and 1st number 1 james bond theme song. One of there unique song ever.

Love it Love it Love it, I went to the Eiffel Tower last year and was remembering the video.

This song was the only reason that A View to a Kill wasn't considered the worst Bond Movies ever

5The Reflex

I can easily dance to this song, even though I'm a poor dancer. The music is funky and fresh. The lyrics are kinda stupid, but they match the sound of the song.

Love the lyrics nearest Duran Duran come to poetry.

The Reflex has the best combination of all the members. The best guitars of Andy, an Heave bass of jhon, the force of roger's drums, the unlimited imagination of nick and his fingers, and the wonderful combinations of the simon's voice. They will never cuoud superate this song.

Song that made me actually like Duran Duran...

6The Chauffeur

haunting and nostalgic! I like that it's not one of their big hits and only die-hards are really committed to it.

it's simply the best, but save a prayer comes very very close

This is one of the few songs in the world that I could listen to for a week straight and still love it, not saying I'm going to do it.
"And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart" The song is even a good poem by itself!

Great song I never tire of playing.

This is probably my all time fave of theirs. I think the reason why I love it so is because it was probably their first song and video that I saw and just instantly fell in love with that video. You can see their fun side, their glamorous side and hear all the musical layers wrapped up with that first giggle! I love watching them play it live, because you can see how much they love playing it. Even though I adore some of their lesser known songs like "Palomino" and their version of "Watching the Detectives", this song does it for me!

Rio and Duran Duran are Called Bands are 4 Players each person Who Sings the song Like Dirty Little Secret The All American Rejects are a Band (Movie Version

Great vocals, instruments, video... Best mainstream Duran Duran ever!

Lots of ideas in this video and doesn't take itself too seriously; like it.

8Save A Prayer

I feel like taking a nap every time I here that song. I wonder why people don't listen to duran duran anymore. People just listen to pop songs like shake it off. Well guess what pop stinks

On my "relax" playlist on itunes, this is amongst the most often played. Loved the keyboards especially at the end. Beautiful music video as well.

The melody that Nick Rhodes created, I bow down to you Sir! Memorable and will always put a smile on your face when you here that and this song

Love it now you're talking!

9Girls On Film

Listening to it right now! Brilliant tune and always reminds me of Ashes to Ashes!

And not because of the video either. Honest! Liked that close up shot of the oil though. Anyway, this one is very catchy. This track was stuck in my head for so long, it ain't funny. One of the most interesting songs of the 80s for me, in terms of production. A very unique sound indeed.

difficult to top this song.

Unusual sexy mysterious: second only to my obsession with Planet Earth, 34 years running...

10New Religion

I disagree... Great song... Not one that gets played a lot but that is a disservice to a great melody and synth riff. Listen to the drums... And Simon's almost hysterical singing... Pure DD!

Love this song... You really need a top 25 for Duran with so many great songs!

There are more worthy tunes to be in the top 10

The Contenders

11The Wild Boys

The Arena album is without a doubt one of their BEST albums

Duran duran's best song..

My brother is wild so he should here this song more often. Well lets talk about me I'm a duran duran freak. But my sister is definitely not.

How is it possible that this song is only eleven? Wild boys is one of the greatest song ever without doubt it deserves first place!

12Planet Earth

Debut single and one that immediately put them at odds with Spandau Ballet in the British Press for "best new romantic" band. They have only recently made up! At the time, they were always pitted against each other in number 1, Smash Hits and even NME and Melody Maker. This song has a killer hook and a great drum line. You can't sit still through this song and believe me it was a killer dance track in the clubs!

First song I ever heard of their's, back in Fall of '81 in Los Angeles. LOVED it instantly. Insanely intelligent lyrics - a thinker's song & deliciously musical.

An amazing first song! "This is Planet Earth, ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba" Love it

This song is good

I enjoyed this period where the guys wanted to be more funky and have a harder edge to their music. However, a lot of people who were loyal fans of the poppy, Duran Duran were not too thrilled with the the album "Notorious" and the its title track. I thought it was a tremendous album and a tremendous song.

I am adding this one to the list. This song rocks and is their best.

I loved this song when it came out in the 80's. It harkened a more mature sound both in this song and the album. Very rich layered synths and Simon at his best with the lyrics.

14Finest Hour

A finely-crafted and highly-underrated song, easily the best on the Astronaut album.

This song is one of my favourites that they have ever done.

15New Moon On Monday

WHAT?! How could this be #30?! It needs to be in the top ten, definitely

Admittedly, it took me a while to get into this one. A cool melody. And I don't care if the band hates the video, I like it a lot!

Definitely should be higher,

16Careless Memories

Their best, most overlooked single. Also one of the best live tracks ever.

When DD released their first album their music were an excellent mix of rock, new age and pop. They lost 50% of it on the second album and 50% more on the third one. Too bad.

17All You Need Is Now

Classic Duran. They remembered the sound
That made them famous.

18Anyone Out There

Should have been their second single in my opinion. 30 years down the line I still enjoy this track on the debut album the best!

19Friends of Mine

Timeless quality. Nicks finest work
