On this date in 2000, Last Day on Earth was released as a single in Japan. As far as I know, it was only released as a single there and marked only the second single off the Pop Trash album with Someone Else Not Me being the first. I wonder why they decided to release this song only in Japan. Anyone know? As for the song itself, it is a track off Pop Trash that I do enjoy and really seems to fit the Duran philosophy of living in the moment since this song asks what you would do if this was the last day left. It is all about the idea of seizing the moment and living one’s life fully each and everyday. The same philosophy was more recently heard in the song, All You Need Is Now.
Like All You Need Is Now, it is a song that often opened up the band’s shows on the Pop Trash tour. Here is a live clip of it here:
This particular clip was recorded at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.
What does everyone think of this song? What do you think of this live performance?
