According2g wishes Duran Duran’s lead singer Simon Le Bon a very happy birthday today, October 27. I’ve been a Duran Duran fan since the beginning of their career and I know today’s playlist is going to be packed with songs such as “Friends of Mine,” “Secret Oktober,” “Skin Trade,” and “Do You Believe in Shame?” I’m going to pretend that Duran Duran didn’t make a serious career error by working with Timbaland on this day. I am looking so forward to hearing their new album, which Mark Ronson is producing. You can get a taste of what the collaboration will sound like on the title track of Mark Ronson’s album “Record Collection,” which features guest vocals by the birthday boy. Happy birthday Simon!
