MP3 of the Day

On this day in 1980, Simon Le Bon auditioned to be the singer of Duran Duran. He showed up to the audition wearing pink leopard skin pants. Simon and the other members had a discussion about their favorite bands, and they played an early version of “Girls on Film” for him. They found that one of his poems, “Sound of Thunder” fit almost perfectly on top of an instrumental they had on tape, and they agree to let him be in the band for the summer. Today we have a live recording of Rio by Duran Duran performed in NYC in 1982.
