Okay, I admit I've never heard this song before (or if I did back in the day, I don't remember it now), so this was a great introduction to a cool song and video. Yeah, I know... my pop culture experiences are sorely lacking. Speaks to the power of Duran Duran that they completely overrode my classical music upbringing (and parental objections) to dominate like nothing before or since!

I watched the video on youtube too, after I read your write up. Made me smile! That one shot could so be out of Rio! I do love Russell Mulcahy. But wow... the 80's. Leg warmers... the hair...

One of the things I love about the video is how in-your-face 1980s it is. The one-piece swimsuits and the big hair and the leg warmers... Awesome. Glad you got a chance to hear the song at last -- as I say in my review, it's one of my all-time favorites.

I didn't remember Bruno had sort of the 'lead dancer' role in the video. Was nice to look at that again. Great summary!

I really only know Bruno from this video, but he certainly makes an impression in it. Fun performance.
