Speaking Of Duran Duran

By Anonymous

Duran Duran - Ordinary World SingleOrdinary World” is the 23rd single by Duran Duran, and the first single from The Wedding Album. It was released in December 1992 in the United States and January 1993 in the United Kingdom, reaching the top ten in both countries.

By the early 90s, Duran Duran’s once-Beatlesque popularity had faded. Their album Liberty had proved a commercial failure, its two singles failing to make a significant showing on British or American charts. It wasn’t until Capitol leaked “Ordinary World” to a radio station in Florida in the autumn of 1992 that it looked like Duran Duran mania might yet hit again. The single proved so popular that Capitol had to push the US release date up, ultimately releasing it in December. In the UK, the original January release date stood. The song can be credited as introducing Duran Duran to a new generation of fans.

Peak chart positions: #3 in the US and held at #6 in the UK.
