be careful what you wish for. i can easily recite the third word of the second verse of the fifth track of their eighth album.

summer of 96. vh1 was doing this thing they used to do where they'd play all their videos (by everyone) from a-z for 4th of july weekend. i was out of town so i set my vcr to tape something else on there. i guessed the time so i just had it tape all evening.

i was watching the tape to see what else they played. when they got to duran duran i was like "hey, i remember this song!" for every single one. later that month i went on vacation (again, i was a jetsetter, lol) and ended up buying decade, as well as the first two albums. i think it was a matter of two months before i'd bought everything.

then the waiting...their new album was supposed to have been out within months. it got delayed for a year.

and only because it's bugging me now...
if you count arena:
eighth album: thank you
fifth track: lay lady lay
magic word: lay

if you don't:
eighth album: medazzaland
fifth track: who do you think you are
magic word: on

Wow, you discovered them after I did. Ordinary World was my introduction to Duran Duran, as funny as that sounds cos The Wedding Album was so much different from anything upto that point. Of course, you say you knew many of the songs before. I got Decade (for $1.99 in fact and it still plays great) and that's how I heard many of those old songs except of course the obvious ones like HLTW or Rio which I'd known before. But yeah, the videos for Ordinary World and Come Undone ( ) were what caught my attention. Also, I that word, Medazzaland.

well i mean yeah i knew their stuff before that because of the radio and such, but yeah i didn't start buying their stuff until 96. i've been a lifelong fan really. one of my earliest memories was watching the reflex video on friday night videos.

they have not released a proper greatest hits album imo. decade is flawed because they released stuff afterwards which is okay. but they left out new moon on monday! (the story is simon got sick of the song by then so he cheated fans by not putting it on there.) then greatest, which by then there were so many hits to choose from, they had to use edits of songs. save a prayer's missing a verse and a half!

ahh yes, medazzaland. i remember waiting for that album. this was before the internet was commonplace and even then news didn't always spread quickly. i could use my dad's computer at work on the weekends (my mom worked there as well and she'd go in on saturdays for the overtime, there was nothing to do at home so i went too) and he had the internet!! i remember reading about how it kept getting pushed back. the album title kept changing (i remember reading the story about how it got called medazzaland before it was even called medazzaland).

then john left the band. i forgave him though. but then i had his solo shit to buy, which ironically still came out before medazzaland. so anyway, i couldn't always check the internet so my mom and i would be calling record stores to see if they knew when it would be coming out. i wish i'd recorded those phone calls, most people didn't know what i was talking about!

i remember one guy in particular. he had a bit of a jamaican accent and he called it "medassaland" and it was just the way he said it...i just pictured his eyes bugging out as he said it
