Today in Duran History – Chart Success

On this date in 1985, the American Top 40 charts featured A View to a Kill at number 11 and Power Station’s Get It On at number 9.  Clearly, at this time, everything that they did was successful.  For John and Andy, they had two massive hits on their hands.  As we know, A View to a Kill peaked at number one and was on the Hot 100 singles chart for 17 weeks.  Get It On, on the other hand, peaked at this number 9 position and was on the charts for 15 weeks.

In order to celebrate these two hits, let’s watch a couple of clips of them!
