I have had about 5 different ideas about what to blog about today. A couple of those ideas are good ones that I might address this weekend or next, but I couldn’t approach those today. They are too much, too serious. Another idea focused on how crappy January has been and how I’m so glad that January is finally coming to an end but no one wants to hear me complain. Thus, I had to come up with a completely different idea. I realized one big thing tonight after finding out that my dental “insurance” sucks beyond belief, which is that I could go on and on and complain, fret about my lack of future touring money or I could fight. Now, I can’t fight my bills (at least not directly) but I can and should fight other aspects of my life. In order to do that, I need some motivation, some inspiration. Then, it dawned on me. Music can do that. It can provide some motivation and some inspiration. Maybe, others also need some feisty Duran in their lives on this final day of January. Therefore, I decided to pick out some great Duran clips to watch to do just that–to get us to fight, to get us motivated, to get us feeling feisty. Here are the clips that I came up with:
Wild Boys seemed fitting. While I love the way they have been doing this song, this intro is still dang cool.
What else says feisty to me? How about when Duran discusses the world? I like how they do it. A couple of good examples.
Too Much Information
Finest Hour. I definitely understand the feeling of taking back and fighting for what I believe. I’m right there, right now.
What about how they deal with the less-than-fun aspects to their careers? Here is Notorious and their response to their critics in the media (at least that is what I have always heard that this song was about).
So, fellow Duranies, what am I forgetting? What songs should I have included? Any interviews that you want to post that fits the bill? I know that I still need more to keep my new focus going.
