View to a Kill, by Duran Duran (video) – and an open thread

A friend and I were discussing Duran Duran today. He wasn’t terribly familiar with their music, I really like them. I’ve always felt their music was underappreciated.

He sent me the View to a Kill video, though I’d probably choose Rio or any of a number others from that album.


There but for the grace of God, go I.

And let’s not even talk about the clothes and the hair! Let’s just say I’m lucky I went to study in Paris in 1983-84, instead of London, or I suspect there would have been some interesting fashion choices involving the color of my hair, among other things :)

    Not as cool as 9Goats Black Out.
    But it will do.

    Nick Rhodes…the man of many hair colors and styles. Love that he is an individual and isn’t afraid to wear what he likes. He’s a master of fashion!

    Such delicately feathered hair. Are you sure that isn’t really a photo of Stevie Nicks?

    I like the hair well enough and the finery too. But those humongous phones . . . !

  • I once had hair like that… and for a very brief time reveled in the joy and excessive ruffles and lace of the “New Romantics / Blitz Kids” fashion fad…
