I’ve always loved music. Classical, Rock, Pop, Jazz, BlueGrass, Zydeco, Reggae. I love the way it moves me, and makes me think.
My sister is the same way, and it’s a rare day when the stereo isn’t on in the house, or playing in our cars.
So it made sense that, over 30 years ago, my sister introduced me to her favorite band, which quickly became one of my favorites as well: Duran Duran.
At time, they were the most popular band in the world, but you would be ridiculed for liking them. But, as most of you know, I’ve never been that concerned about what other people think about what I think. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, after all, and no one has ever been able to scare me out of mine.
30 years after I first heard them, Duran Duran are still together, and still making records.
Yesterday, my sister introduced me to the title track of their new album, Paper Gods, being released on September 11.
If this song is any indication, we have a lot to look forward to!
I hope you enjoy it as much as my sister and I did.
