Duran Duran - Red Carpet Massacre "Skin Divers" ft. Timbaland

By DMS


I'm really glad this track leaked. Falling Down was a much more amazing piece than Nite Runner. I wouldn't have a problem with Nite Runner if it sounded like Duran Duran ft. Timbaland and not the other way around.

This track also features Timbo but it's a lot better.

What do you think?

    I have to question just how much you REALLY know about Duran Duran. Nite Runner sounds way more authentic to me than Skin Divers (and when I say "authentic," I am referring to true 80's music).

    You probably can't even remember the 80's.

    *All 80's Baby really means is that you were too young to remember the decade*

    Hi,

    For one I never said I was an 80s baby or that I know everything there is to know about Duran Duran.

    Nite Runner is complete garbage, plain and simple. It's rubbish, I heard fax machines that were more entertaining.

    I don't remember the 80s as I wasn't even alive for most of it, but I've spent most of my teenage life embracing classic music.

    I hope that you do not desire a job in music. You would fail at it. That song is a hit.

    Of course the song is a hit, but for all the wrong reasons.

    Duran Duran has the talent to be number 1 in any country of the world. I'm not saying Justin Timberlake isn't equally as talented, but he's nowhere near the level creatively that Duran Duran is.

    More than half of FutureSex was produced by Timbaland, there's a reason why and it's not just because they're good friends. They have a chemistry that Justin doesn't have with anyone else.

    Sadly Duran Duran and timberlake/land don't have the same chem and it shows.

    Nite Runner is going to probably be number 1 just because it features Timberlake, not because it's a good song because it isn't. At least not compared to either artist's other work.

    Falling Down ft. Timbaland however is an amazing track and it shows that you don't need bells, whistles, and drums to make a good song, despite what Timbeland thinks.

    Duran Duran did not need Timbaland and Timberlake to sound good. I don't know if I am as excited about this album as everyone else is.

    It's a shame really, Prince didn't need either of the T's to create new sounds for his music. Simon is an awesome singer, but it doesn't show on Nite Runner at all. I think Sony pressured them into using the T's to make them more $$$.

    Get Andy back on, do the music you've always done so well together, and tell Sony to kiss your butts. Get a record label that believes in your talent, instead of only seeing the $$ in their eyes. Duran Duran is so much better than that.

    Bla bla bla, whine whine whine, boo hoo ga ga goo goo. All you all do is whine and bitch and moan. So, a group can't expand, can't grow musically, can't move forward.... So, their sound has changed, THAT HAPPENS, holy fucking shit, idiots.

    Way to bring up and old topic, at the end of the day I really enjoyed RCM.

    But I still hate Nite Runner.

Something to say?
