The Top Ten

1
Come 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!
this was the song which introduced me to duran duran in the early 90s. I was about 13 years old. still love listening to it now! one of my faves.
Drums, Melody, Lyrics... Haunting & Just Amazing!
Period...

2Ordinary World
Extraordinary song from an ultra extraordinary band... this song is too much good for this ordinary worl... Everyone is my world, I don't cry for yesterday, cause there is an extraordinary band called duran duran
The lyrics in this song are very inspiring. I sometimes listen to it every day cause it helps me get through the hard times.
It has the sweet lyrics and killing melody... that's a perfect combination.
[Newest]This single was a great song to introduce Duran Duran to people after the 80s!

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?
[Newest]The best for all time

4The 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
It's a song that remains in your head forever once you've listened to it.
[Newest]This song's melody could fit to a horror movie, it's also great.

5Girls 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.
[Newest]See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight

6Rio
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!
[Newest]Lots of ideas in this video and doesn't take itself too seriously; like it.

7The 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.
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.
Love the lyrics; nearest Duran Duran come to poetry.

8A 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.
This song was the only reason that A View to a Kill wasn't considered the worst Bond Movies ever
Love it Love it Love it, I went to the Eiffel Tower last year and was remembering the video.

9Save 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.
My fave Duran Duran song. Beautiful song.
[Newest]Love it; now you're talking!

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!
There are more worthy tunes to be in the top 10
1st time I've heard it; its good but, prefer Planet Earth.

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.

12Notorious
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.

13Finest Hour
This song is one of my favourites that they have ever done.

14Careless 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.

15All You Need Is Now
Classic Duran. They remembered the sound
That made them famous.

16Khanada

17To the Shore

18Friends of Mine
Timeless quality. Nicks finest work

19Night Boat

20Planet 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!
