Why this song? It's not that musically interesting


Or good

I've always suspected Nick Rhodes was a talentless hack. Evidence: confirmed.

I've always enjoyed Duran Duran's bass work. Not bad, not bad at all. And, really, folks, it's a fun pop tune, and it really does have that "we recorded it quickly so there's not overthinking" vibe to it.

Makes me wonder: why don't artists release "karaoke" versions of their songs as well when they release their albums? Or stuff like these encouraging people to do remixes?

It's an iconic pop song from the 80s. Think of it as a field trip to the music museum.

It has happened.

They made all the samples and tracks available individually so fans could make their own remixes.

Hold Back the Rain was the best track on the album

Perhaps, but the video for Rio was, quite possibly the best (or at least most 80's) video of the 80's.

The liner notes go: ""We're sick of remixing this fu(ker - so here are the bits, do it yourself!""

i read this book about a mom that tried to kill her kids. one of the kids lived but was injured and was slumped over on the floor board of the car and she said that as she thought she was dying this song was playing on the car radio.

every time i hear it i think of that

Ah, thanks. I knew it was Shamen but I was having trouble finding the right cover.

Most of the artists in Billboard Top 100 put their isolated tracks (vocals, at least) on YouTube and Beatportfor remix and megamixes.
 
2013-12-21 09:31:13 PM
I personally really liked them under the name Arcadia. So Red the Rose.

That isolated vocal track is something 99% of today's pop stars couldn't do with five month's work and autotune.

Ah yes, Diane Downs.  She had 3 kids at the time and shot all 3.  One died, one was paralyzed and the oldest suffered a stroke during recovery but finally at the age of 8 was able to testify against her mother.  And why did this POS kill/attempted to kill them?  Because her married boyfriend said he didn't want to be a daddy.  But yes she had this song playing when she did it.  During the trial the song was played and she was drumming to it.

Fark, I loved Duran Duran.  Going to their shows got me lucky so many times.  I also loved their music.  Old, I am.

Did you read John Taylor's book? What a fun trip down the 80s.

I love the whole "Rio" record. And their self-titled debut, too. Duran Duran is one of a number of '80s bands who are underrated because their actual musical output is eclipsed by their MTV-era image.

And you know who else? A Flock of Seagulls.
 
2013-12-22 03:35:42 AM
I like to play them all together
 
2013-12-22 06:13:23 AM
I'm a life-long metal fan, but Rio is 100% classic. Back to front, the album is amazing. And John Taylor is a badass on the bass.

To be pedantic about it, that wasn't "them," but rather a side project of LeBon, Rhoades, and whichever Taylor didn't spin off with John to form The Power Station.

Catch Andy Taylor's book as well 'Wild Boy':  It's actually quite good.  Andy doesn't hold back on his own failings/drug use/what it cost him, or his personal opinions of what the other band members are really like.  (Most unsurprising, Roger, while a talented musician, just is not a fan of being the object of fandom, John enjoyed the ever-loving shiat outta the lifestyle, but wised up soon enough to save his own life and actually began to take music seriously, and Nick Rhodes is an insufferable douche then, and now, and a raging control freak.  Simon is far more a family man than one might have thought.)

Came away with that book with a helluva lot more respect for Andy as a person, and a musician.  He doesn't sugar coat any of his screw ups, and owns that shiat straight up!
