Hungry Like The Wolf

Here's the adventurous music video for Duran Duran's big 1983 hit "Hungry Like The Wolf."  

This was a breakthrough hit for Duran Duran, a band which exploded onto popularity in America as part of the Second British Invasion, and which would go on to score a large number of more hits during the '80s.

This week has been devoted to the Second British Invasion of music groups which exploded onto the American music scene in 1983. My previous posts on the subject are below. I encourage checking them out:

  1. I used to (and still) dig "Girls on Film". The video was quite provocative to say the least!!

  2. Just found your blog. I've added it to my blog roll, would appreciate it if you would return the favor! Thanks

  3. Darrin-- I remember the "Girls on Film" video, I seem to remember it had some sumo-inspired action. Provocative indeed!

    Jason G-- Did it. Youre on my list. Thanks for listing my blog.

  4. I actually never saw the video until the early 90s which is when I first got into Duran Duran. I never understood why my classmates were going ga-ga over them until then. Love the 2nd British Invasion theme - it's such great music.

  5. LaraAnn-- Thanks! This was when I really started getting into music. It just happened that MTV was taking off, and all these great groups were popular. A great time for great music.
