Duran Duran - Union Of The Snake (Extended Version)

Released on 17th October 1983, Union Of The Snake was the first song to be lifted from Duran Duran's third studio album Seven And The Ragged Tiger, which was released a month later. The track was recorded in the Caribbean and mixed (at the last minute!) in Sydney.

According to drummer Roger Taylor, the drum beat is based on David Bowie's Let's Dance - you can kind of hear the similarity, particularly at the start.

Union Of The Snake peaked at #3 in both the UK and the U.S.
