Eventually we all leave home, whether for college or apartments or the open road. But there is the distinct sensation of comfort (possibly even unbridled joy) when you find yourself at the doorstep of your childhood; a wonderful sense of nostalgia when you look upon the room you grew up in or upon the toys you once played with.
Or, in this case, the music of your youth can be brought back to mind.
Of course, that is a horse of a different color for all of us. For me, though, Duran Duran represents my formative years. I loved this band - and I still love this band. And this song is such a great reminder of who/what Duran Duran is, letting me know that some things do not change…
Directed by Jonas Akerlund, this video features Cindy, Naomi, Eva, Helena & Yasmin as Duran Duran & they all look fan-fucking-tabulous. I think all the supers have aged well, even the ones who have had a lot of work done still wear it well. There’s a fantastic editorial in the December issue of the Bazaar UK feature the women on the video set.
The video also features pretty slim young girls in lingerie making out in swanky hotel rooms, which is something else I love, but mostly this video just made me want to watch George Michael’s Freedom 90 & Too Funky videos, which are two of my favourite videos of all time! Plus, a super montage video without Linda makes me feel empty & sad.
