Album: Astronaut (2004)
Charted: 5 89
  • This anthem is about renewal and hope. It was the first single Duran Duran released with all 5 original members since "A View To A Kill" in 1985. The band was enjoying a resurgence, as they were coming off a very successful tour and received lifetime achievement awards from MTV and Q magazine. >>

  • A remix was featured on the soundtrack of the TV show Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. The show was very popular at the time and inclusion on the album was great promotion for Duran Duran, who were known for their sense of fashion.
