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
It has the sweet lyrics and killing melody... that's a perfect combination.
The lyrics in this song are very inspiring. I sometimes listen to it every day cause it helps me get through the hard times.

3The 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 the Best by far, musically speaking No comercial trash as many others

4Hungry 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
So, who else remembers the film "Big Fat Liar" where Paul Giamatti is dancing to this song before having a swim in the dreaded blue water? For better or worse, that is what usually comes to mind when I think of this song. This became one of the signature songs of the 80's and many would consider it their favourite DD track. It was also the band's breakthrough hit in the United States. Drummer Roger Taylor has stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties" and it is hard to disagree.

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.

6Rio
I wonder what happened to rio is she still on that boat. Or is she dancing on the sand. how much do they mant me to write. Sometimes less is more guys. GAWDH!
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!

7The Reflex
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.
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 this song period.

8Save A Prayer
My fave Duran Duran song. Beautiful song.
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.
Amazing song. One of the best.

9A 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.
Ok, so I am not denying that part of the reason why this track is so high on my list is because AVTAK is my favourite James Bond film ever. But the more important reason is that I truly dig this song more than most of their others. I never get tired of this track after listening to it for over a hundred times, I'm sure. Love the colourful lyrics as well. What is a lovers' rosy stain?
One of my favorite bond films and theme songs

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.

19New 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!

20Is There Something I Should Know?
Still contemplating doing a lip-sync music video to this song. I got a definite spot for this one. Favourite music video of the band for my taste. The opening is the most addictive bit. With those heavy drums. "Please, Please tell me now! " DUN DUN!

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!

33Skin Trade
The funkiest. The most addictive. The greatest Double D song for me. Released in 1987, it was the second single from Duran Duran's Notorious album. Have never heard a good argument as to why it can't be considered the best. And not to mention, that SAX!

56Mediterranea
Such brilliance must not be shunned unto the darkness, emancipate the greatness!
Mediterranea shows the sentimental and incredibly immersive side of Duran Duran. It's blissfully unique descriptive and a perfect melodic mix of guitar chords, fine vocals and an assortment of other musical apparatus make this one of Duran Duran's finest musical compositions. Immeasurable and Unquestionable quality here.
