A few days ago, I tweeted and posted another survey question in which people had to respond by using Duran Duran lyrics. Like the last time, I was super impressed with how clever people were in their responses. The question was: What Duran Duran lyric best describes what you like to do for fun? As soon as I posted the question, I knew that some people might find themselves in the gutter a bit, which was immediately seen when someone responded with, “Bedroom Toys.” All I could do is laugh! Of course, there were a lot of other responses that I want to share here.
To no one’s surprise, many of the responses focused on going on vacation with many of the lyrics focusing on warm or tropical locations like “Nine am, the beach, tequila mayhem”, “Across the sky a jet trail following, the wish that I was on that plane, on my way to some far destination, undiscovered never mentioned, sipping on the high of expectation,” and “she dances on the sand.”
Some responses focused on things that can be done in cities like: “Ride the underground!” or “Maybe I can catch a ride…” Another one could be “Just a perfect day. Feed animals in the zoo and later, a movie too and then home.” One that might also fit into city life would be “looking for cracks in the pavement.”
Sexual in Nature
The person who chose “Bedroom Toys” was not the only one who focused on a lyric that might be considered a bit sexual. Some examples include: “Come Undone,” “Some people call it a one night stand but we can call it paradise…” or “the reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark.”
I was surprised that there weren’t more lyrics chosen that focused on partying. One of the first ones I came across was “Fire dance through the night.” Of course, I suppose that could also be about a bonfire or something like that. One classic lyric that was given was “there’s an all night party is room 7609,” which I appreciated. I also liked “La la la late bar…”
Someone mentioned that she enjoys “waiting for the sound of thunder.” I liked that one as I too like to listen to storms. Another one that I thought was cool was, “Sway in the moon. The way you did when you were younger.” “Chasing after rainbows” could also be weather related.
A few people were able to find a lyric that describes a hobby. One instance of this was “Got your picture,” which could be in reference to photography. Another one that was close was, “Heads turning as the lights flashing out are so bright, and walk right out to the four line track, there’s a camera rolling on her back, on her back.” The lyric, “Sing blue silver,” came up more than once. Apparently, Duranies like to sing! 😉 Dancing seemed to something people like with the line, “Steppin’ out, step-in’ out, step-in’ out, and jumpin’ up” Similarly, “the music between us” was also stated more than once. On a different note, TV and art were mentioned with, “I sold the Renoir and the TV set. Don’t wanna be around when this gets out!”
Some lyrics could fit into multiple categories so that I am not sure where to put them. An example of this is “Reach Up for the Sunrise.” Are people reaching for the sunrise because they are sitting at a beach watching a beautiful day being born or are they reaching for the sunrise because they have been up partying all night? Another one that could fit in more than one would be “I saunter out and down a path sometimes.” Is it going for a walk? Hiking? Visiting a new place? What about “Pressure Off?” Would that go under vacations? Partying?
Of course, there were some that didn’t seem to fit anywhere including: “Wild boys never lose it, wild boys never close your eyes, wild boys always shine,” “Once I thought I was in control, but that was just another trick of fate playing with my life…” and “Searching for the undeniable truth that a man is just a fool.” What about “hungry like the wolf?” I’m not sure. What about “Dress in flimsy clothing, use your lipstick line, to cover fear and loathing with a pink disguise.” Again, I didn’t know the best category to put that lyric in. Probably my favorite was, “Oh my God, what’s this??” Too funny!
Rhonda picked a lyric that would definitely fit into the party category and probably the one I would also choose, which was “We’re gonna live this night, yeah. Live it like it’s our last night. ‘Cause nobody care if there’s no tomorrow.” For us, there is nothing better than touring. While I’m sure that I’m having a great time on vacation with my family as we go through history and art museums, play games and more, there is still nothing quite like being on tour. Something to look forward to for next month!
What lyric did you choose or would you choose, if you didn’t share yet?
