New Wave Month Song of the Day – Girls On Film – Duran Duran


Girls on Film is an early hit for Duran Duran, coming in as their third single in 1981.  The tune made its mark in England at the time, but didn’t become known here in the States until two years later, when the video for the song received heavy airplay on MTV.  The vid itself was somewhat racy for the times, with scantily clad women in various steamy scenes, and it caused quite a stir, being banned at first in the UK and then heavily edited for MTV.  Of course, the controversy kept both the song, and the group, in the limelight for a long time to come, and Duran Duran would soon explode onto the mainstream as a result.  Check out Girls On Film
