On this date in 1997, Duran Duran’s song, Out of my Mind, peaked at number 21 in the UK. This song, of course, was on the Medazzaland album, but it was also released as a single on the soundtrack for the movie, The Saint. In terms of Duran singles, it was their 28th single. The single featured two b-sides: Sinner or Saint (written specifically for the movie) and Silva Halo.
So, what do you think about this song’s chart position? While it peaked at number 21 in the UK, it got to number 14 in Italy, according to Duran’s wikipedia page. It did not chart in the States. The other single from Medazzaland, Electric Barbarella, peaked at number 52 in the States and number 23 in the UK. Thus, Out of my Mind did better than Electric Barbarella in the UK. Fascinating. Reaction?
Do you own the single?
