Duran Duran - Notorious (1986)

Live in Hyde Park (London Olympics 2012)

Please note that you can select the original video in the playlist on the main Duran Duran page.

Released on 20th October 1986, Notorious was the first single release and the title track from the album, and reached #7 in the UK. It was Duran Duran's fourteenth single overall and it reached the Top 5 in many countries, including the U.S. where it reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

By the time the single was released, both Roger and Andy Taylor had left the band, although Andy Taylor had already contributed to some of the tracks on the album. Producer Nile Rodgers (who plays guitar on the Notorious single) gave a funky edge to the streamlined band, with a lot of focus on bass and brass, which displeased some fans who believed that the band were losing their way.
