The 11 Best Songs By Duran Duran of the 00s

In music, it's not about being the best, it's surviving the longest.  Duran Duran was a seminal 80s group.  They had a string of hits...but very few people would consider them one of the best of the decade.  In fact, I would doubt they would even crack the top 25...maybe not even the top 50.  But entering into their 4th decade as a band, they've outlived most of their synth-pop peers.  Because of this, they've been pushed higher on the alternative pedestal.  Now, 30 years into their career, they've just put out their best album since the 80s.  It's at this point in a band's career, that every thing comes full circle and they just go back to doing what they do best.  Now, bet you can't wait for the new Whitesnake album next week.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Duran Duran of the 00s:

  1. Reach Up For The Sunrise (Astronaut)
  2. Playing With Uranium (Pop Trash)

  4. Still Breathing (Astronaut)
