Duran Duran, 2015, Paper Gods


I know it’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted and I planned to write a post explaining why but that will need to be done at a later time.  Tonight, Duran Duran kick off their Paper Gods Tour and although I won’t be in New York to witness it, I figure it would be a good idea to publish my wish list for some of my favorite (some lesser known) songs that I wish would be added to the set list.

I know people want to hear the hits but I, for one, would be happy to see any of the following added on this tour:


American Science

Anyone Out There


Before The Rain

Careless Memories

Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile)

Faster Than Light

Friends of Mine

Hold Back The Rain (my favorite)

(I’m Looking For) Cracks in the Pavement

I Don’t Want Your Love

I Take The Dice

Is There Something I Should Know?


Last Chance on the Stairway

Late Bar

Like An Angel

Lonely In Your Nightmare

Love Voodoo

Meet El Presidente

My Own Way

New Moon on Monday

New Religion


Night Boat

None of The Above

Notorious (another favorite)

Of Crime and Passion

Runway Runaway

Secret Oktober


The Seventh Stranger

Shadows On Your Side

Skin Trade

Sound of Thunder

(Reach Up For The) Sunrise

Taste The Summer

Too Bad, You’re So Beautiful

Too Much Information

Union of the Snake

The Valley (yes, I liked RCM)

Vertigo (Do The Demolition)

What Happens Tomorrow


I know there are staples that I didn’t include but I’ve heard them more than a few times.  It would be awesome to get an entire show of “B-sides” (for lack of a better word) – one can dream, right?

Wishing all my Duranie friends who are going to see the band before I do, a most fabulous time!


What song do you think I should have included (I’m certain I’ve forgotten more than one)?
