Duran Duran History: Rock Over London

Today’s Duran Duran history takes us back to 1987, to the era of Notorious, when Rock Over London featured Skin Trade.  Rock Over London was a vinyl radio show that broadcasted in the U.S.  Other artists featured on this particular episode included Wang Chung, Roger Waters, Heaven 17 and World Party.

Skin Trade peaked at number 39 on the Hot 100 chart in the U.S.  Shall we watch the video?

Today in Duran History – Notorious on Rock Over London

On this date in 1986, Rock Over London featured Notorious.  The single had been released worldwide on October 20th of the same year.  Despite the shock over the loss of Andy and Roger and the shock over the stylistic change of this album, this single still did well, chart wise.  It reached number 7 in the UK and peaked at number 2 in the US.  We also recently reviewed the song here.

Anyone in the mood to see the video now?  I am!
