At Sunday night’s American Music Awards, Duran Duran played their new single “Falling Down,” followed by a song selected by fans. Apparently, the three tracks we had to choose from were “Notorious,” “(Reach up for the) Sunrise,” and “Hungry Like the Wolf” (which won). We know Tony Hawk, who introduced the band, wanted them to play “A View to a Kill”
and clearly never visited mycokerewards.com to vote either. What were you hoping to hear? I was wishing for “I Don’t Want Your Love.” I’ve watched the video below—of the band performing it earlier this month during their Broadway run—at least 25 times. Partly because I love seeing Nick Rhodes smile, partly because that electro set was hot.
I also would have accepted “All She Wants Is.” Or, any song that allows Simon Le Bon and John Taylor to share the same microphone. Again, hot.
