DURAN DURAN - THE WILD BOYS

WILD BOYS



Wild Boys was one of those songs that always made me feel creeped out. It was the primal yells and the bongs & dongs in the intro that set the feeling. Then the lyrics started. As a young boy at the time it was easy to picture myself as a lost boy. I must have just watched the Mad Max movie, b/c I always picture these Lost Boys as dirty, rag wearing, hermit like kids who live in the desert and drive modified dune buggies that kick up huge dust clouds behind them.


Apparently though, the wild boys of Duran Duran made the teen girls of the day feel the exact opposite. The story is told through the humour of memes:


I think a lot of people blame Duran Duran for the world's problems...not me.



I'd say, "Blondie" or Boy George.








Cute button babe.



Is this a requirement that some ladies look for on online dating sites?



You go girl! (80s girl!)



Oh Moms.





Mine is more like 70.5%



All big hair moments remind me of Duran Duran too!

TEARS FOR FEARS BEST SONG DEBATE

HEAD OVER HEELS FOR HEAD OVER HEELS










Tears for Fears ruled the airwaves of the mid 80s. Their iconic hits like SHOUT (Shout, Shout, Let it all out) and EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD are still in heavy rotation on the 'oldies' / 'classic rock' / '80s' radio stations.
But, to me, their best song was HEAD OVER HEELS. Funny, this song was from the same album, same time frame, did just as well on the charts as their other hits (#3 on the Billboard Top 100), but, somehow it seems to have been forgotten? 
I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is one of the best songs of the decade and the most overlooked song of the time. What do you think?


I do think these guys take a great photo, but, that is a debate for another day.


More like the look of fears in their tears
