LISTENING IN: Hungry for Duran Duran

If you live in the GTA and you’re of a certain vintage, it’s quite possible that your Facebook exploded this week with photos of soggy friends getting poured on at Monday’s Duran Duran concert in Toronto (at the outdoor Budweiser Stage).

But I know that for fans – being married to one – weather proves little deterrent to turning out to see the British band, which dominated the charts in the ‘80s with hits like “Girls on Film,” “Rio” and “The Reflex.”

Their biggest hit undoubtedly was “Hungry Like the Wolf,” which won a Grammy for best video in 1984.

(Fun fact: The band was named after the mad scientist Dr. Durand Durand in the 1968 Jane Fonda film “Barbarella.”)

Today, the core four players – Simon, Nick, Roger, and John (the one my wife was in love with at the time)¬ – are still at it (minus Andy Taylor), having recorded a new album, “Future Past,” this year and now touring to support it.

But if you missed the Ontario Place event, and don’t have the new album, consider this a timely – and dry – alternative.

Lyrics

Dark in the city, night is a wire
Steam in the subway, earth is afire
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

Woman, you want me, give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I’m on the hunt, I’m after you
Smell like I sound, I’m lost in a crowd
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt, I’m after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Stalked through the forest, too close to hide
I’ll be upon you by the moonlight side
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

High blood drumming on your skin, it’s so tight
You feel my heat, I’m just a moment behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I’m on the hunt, I’m after you
Scent and a sound, I’m lost and I’m found
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line, it’s discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine, I’m after you
Mouth is alive, all running inside
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
I’m on the hunt down, I’m after you
I smell like I sound, I’m lost and I’m found
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line, it’s discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt, I’m after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
I’m on the hunt, I’m after you
Scent and a sound, I’m lost and I’m found
And I’m hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line, it’s discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine, I’m after you
Mouth is alive, all running inside
