I cannot believe that I’m posting this blog so very late. The day just got away from me. I slept late, needing to catch up on sleep, then spent about 2 hours on the phone with my sister and niece. They are coming to visit in a couple of weeks so that my niece can look at a nearby college. Then, I had to run to a political meeting that lasted almost 4 hours! Anyway, I apologize.
Last weekend, we paused on the Ultimate Box Set polls in order to cover the shows at Agua Caliente. Now, that life is returning to boring, old normal, it is time to get back to it. The idea behind this series of blogs is simple. The fans are to vote on songs that they wish would be included on a Duran Duran Ultimate Box Set, if the band was to do something like this. So far, the fans have chosen the 7 singles to be included on it. Then, we picked 7 songs from the first three albums, then 7 songs off the next three album and lastly 7 more songs from the next four albums. This week, I am asking fans to choose 7 songs from the 4 most recent albums. These albums are the ones written and recorded after the reunion and include Astronaut, Red Carpet Massacre, All You Need Is Now and Paper Gods. Next week, then, we will take the winners of these album tracks and limit them to just 7 songs overall. It should be a close and challenging vote. Heck, I suspect this week will be tough.
Without any further ado, please vote on the 7 album tracks that you would like to see included on a Duran Duran Ultimate Box Set.
