Here's to all the Girls on Film and Wild Boys!

Many thanks to Amanda at HerCanberra for publishing the story of my Duran Duran adventure last week, you can read all about it here, http://www.hercanberra.com.au/index.php/2012/04/03/duran-dreaming/

In honour of the boys from Birmingham, I’ve written a list of my top 10 favourite songs, and a list of the top 10 reasons why it’s better to see them in your 40s rather than your teens. 

And of course there are pictures courtesy of my camera-phone, enjoy!

Top 10 Duran Duran songs

  1. New Moon on Monday
  2. Hungry Like the Wolf
  3. Ordinary World
  4. Come Undone
  5. Save a Prayer
  6. Wild Boys
  7. Electric Barbarella
  8. Careless Memory
  9. The Chauffer
  10. New Religion

10 reasons why seeing Duran Duran at 40 is better than at 13, because you:

  1. Get to skive off work
  2. Can pay the ticket price without having to ask for extra pocket money or do chores
  3. Wear the fabulous dress you bought in Rotterdam a couple of months ago
  4. Have cleavage rather than puppy-fat
  5. Have a credit card to buy merch
  6. Use your professional experience to work out to the last cent how much it cost to print a program that is an irregular size, has metallic colours, embossed details and spot printing, and know it is a bargain at $40
  7. Are still comfortable being too cheap to buy one and ask the person next to you to let you read theirs.
  8. Be able to blog about the whole adventure
  9. Drink top shelf cocktails after the show
  10. Don’t need your mum’s permission!
