I just scored my tickets to see Duran Duran in Washington, DC on October 16th and I feel like I’m about to leap out of my skin. I’ve admittedly been on a bit of a DD kick for the last year or so, mostly due to the new record, which I LOVE. I haven’t LOVED a DD record since “Rio”. Parts of “Seven and the Ragged Tiger” are great and I’ve liked something from every record since, but I adore the new one. Just ask my kids. It’s all we listen to in the car. So, yes, it would have been easy to pick “Hungry Like the Wolf” or one of my favorites like “Nightboat”, but I thought it best to celebrate the present.
