It is Saturday! That means that it is time for the question of the week. If you have been following along, the theme of this current set of questions is the song that represents each tour. By the end of the set of questions, I am hoping that we have a song for each tour Duran Duran has ever done. When we started this set, I opted to go from most recent to least. Our results so far are:
Paper Gods Tour – Pressure Off
All You Need Is Now Tour – All You Need Is Now
Red Carpet Massacre – Nite Runner
Now, it is time to vote on a song that best represents the Astronaut Tour. When creating the poll, I looked the songs the band played in 2005 as they played most of the songs then. Now, before I share the poll, I want to warn you that the band played more than 40 different songs in 2005. Will it be hard to choose? Without a doubt. To ease your struggle, pick the song that grabs you first. Then, next week, I’ll do the same question, narrowing to just the songs that were chosen. This way if you change your mind, you have another opportunity to vote. On that note, happy voting!
Last week, I asked the question about which song represents the Red Carpet Massacre Tour. The results were interesting. According to the voters, the song that represents that tour was Seven Nations Army, a cover. Fascinating. So, my question for you readers is a simple one. Should we take this pick at face value or ask another question comparing the top two songs? Here is a video of Seven Nations Army:
According to setlist.fm, in 2008, this song was played one time. Now, I definitely don’t want to undercut democracy, but it seems strange to me since it was not played a lot and not many fans would have seen it. Therefore, I have decided just to do a run-off in order to make me feel better.
Here is the new poll. Please vote! ( Pretend like this matters when it really does not. Ha!)
