21What Happens Tomorrow

The original lineup with Nile Rodgers production. I highly rate this DD track from 2003.

23Night Boat

One of their darker ones, but definitely a gem. Miss hearing this one live.


This is so underrated, most beautiful song, and live it is even better. Probably my favourite ever Duran Duran song.

25Do You Believe In Shame?
26A Matter of Feeling
27Faster Than Light
28Hold Back the Rain

Best Duran Duran song ever. Bass line is splendid and sound is so rich.

Classic song from their prime album, Rio.

John Taylor and that killer bass line! Amazing song. And as a bass player myself, the best bass line I've probably heard. Thanks JT

29To the Shore
30Big Bang Generation
31The Man Who Stole a Leopard

For sure this song should be in the top ten, really exciting from the very first note and such a lovely story! Come on vote her up!

Unusual and thrilling thing, lyrics and story about the leopard girl are very romantic. One of the best Duran Duran song!

Great Song! I play it everyday because of the melody, the lyrics and the sentiment. Simon LeBon never disappoints with his lyrics. Ever since he showed up at the Rum Runner club and auditioned for the band with his book of poetry, Duran Duran has been in good hands!

Should be right up there with The Chauffeur

32Falling Down

The fact that this song doesn't make the top ten makes me sad. This song is a rare masterpiece, it tugs you somewhere deep in your heart. - kreefan11

This one of Duran Duran's best. Should be in the Top Ten.

RCM is actually quite good and this song particularly shines. Should have been a big hit, but as it goes, all radio stations are owned by a few large corporationss who dictate what is heard by the masses. Radio is mostly ageist and still view Duran as an 80's band when they have far transcended that label.

33Sound of Thunder

I actually love listening to this track more than any other on the debut album. It has replaced "anyone out there" as my favorite. It should have been released as a single in the US! It could have actually charted and recieved radio play.

They had so many great songs. This one should be up there.

34Girl Panic!

First... Check out the VIDEO! Awesome! Pure DD! The song will creep into your consciousness from the outset and you will find yourself humming this incessantly. If this came out in the 80's, it would have been a mega-hit. Go to YouTube and watch the video! Classic!

Had it come out thirty years ago, would have dominated the radio waves. Passionate vocals, true blue DD song, funny lyrics - gotta love Simon on this.

DD performs this song live very very well, a real treat and a great song!

35Lady Xanax
36Beautiful Colours

Even though this song was not finished its really really really good.

37Lonely In Your Nightmare

This song needs way more love, one of the greatest from an almost perfect album.

39Skin 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!

40Leave a Light On

Are you all kidding me? This like one of the best Songs ever!

Agreed - a fantastic song. Top 5?

Great song, I would put this around 8 or 9 on the list.
