RE: Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf” Isolated Tracks | That Eric Alper

Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf” Isolated Tracks | That Eric Alper – great article!! One of my favorite songs of all time.

“Rio” is my favorite album.  Duran Duran is still around after all these years. No surprise.

Granted, Hungry Like The Wolf is a weird song if you listen to the lyrics. I get it, but it’s odd. HOWEVER, the musical arrangement is amazing. Hard to believe these guys were so young when they wrote it. Nick Rhodes is a masterful genius, and there’s no denying he was the savory underpinning of this great band. He was quite the orchestrator, literally. Oh, the flack I caught from my parents because they “looked like girls” – but who’s laughing now?

This revelation about the song I’d not heard before (article cited below):

“The lyrics were inspired by Little Red Riding Hood…”

U wot m8? I guess it makes sense now…?

Anyway, read the article and enjoy these isolated tracks that collectively make up a great song:
