Happy Birthday to Me – it’s video day!

Today is a strange day for me. I’m blogging, and it is my birthday. Normally Amanda blogs on my birthday, alas, she is at work. I’m also at work. Work is exhausting.

So, here is what we’re going to do. We’re going to watch videos!! The parameters are that these are some of my favorite Duran Duran music videos, and they aren’t in any particular order.

Yes, I went there. I had to. It was the first Duran Duran video I ever saw, and believe it or not, it is still a favorite. 🙂  No eye-rolling here. (You’re welcome, Nick.)

Look at the thumbnail and tell me you don’t know why I picked it.

There probably isn’t another DD song or video that gives me more joy. I need joy.

It’s beautiful. That is all.

When I think of Duran Duran, this is the first video that pops into my head. I will forever see them in silk suits and tans…and when I picture Simon LeBon, this is the image I see.  I smile nearly every time.

It has occurred to me that I could have easily just put up a link to their first video album. Funny how those first videos have stuck with me forever as favorites.

Moving on…

I just love the black and white.

I will forever equate this video with the memory of Amanda and I being met with thunder, lightning and hail in the UK as we walked through the same cemetery they filmed in. I still chuckle when I think about it…forgive me as I squee and brag that I also got to see this room in person!

Gonna end this with Burning the Ground. As much as I still don’t know that I love this mishmash, I still like the video because it reminds me of everything they were…and everything they became.

I’m off to watch Live from London now (I wrote this yesterday)…which was released in the UK, Europe and Australia on THIS day (November 7th) in 2005.

Cheers!
