Today in Duran History – Last Chance on the Stairway

On today’s date in 1981, Duran Duran wrote Last Chance on the Stairway.

This isn’t a song that I personally have seen many times live (if ever??), although the band did incorporate the song into the ElectroSet that they performed during the Red Carpet Massacre tour.  I envy those of you who had the opportunity to see that ElectroSet as I did not have the chance. At the time, I was at home, very sick, and “incubating”.

In any case, let’s watch a video, shall we? I found a few different clips of the ElectroSet, and this one – while not necessarily the most clear visually, struck me because Simon’s voice sounds fantastic.
