When I was in middle school, there was a band that all the girls were talking about. They were (dare I say) bigger than One Direction. Unlike One Direction, they even played their own instruments. The band?
This was the picture I knew best. I even had it on the cover of the folder I used at school every day. My crush was on the one in the middle (Simon LeBon):
Admittedly, the band does have a VERY 80s look. Especially here.
Duran Duran was among the most successful bands of the decade, ushering in what was termed, "The second British invasion." (The Beatles, of course, being the first.) They were compared to The Beatles at the time, but One Direction has been, as well. Let's just agree...there will never be another Beatles.
Still, Duran Duran had some major hits. Girls loved them. Guys liked their music. Then they split up and we were left with hair bands for the rest of the decade.
Thanks a lot, Duran Duran.
But they just signed a contract with Warner Music, so they're still going after all these years. Unfortunately, they peaked somewhere around this video:
Did you have a music crush growing up?
