D80sV #42: Duran Duran - Planet Earth

Daily 80's Video #42: Wow, never actually seen this video. "Planet Earth" was one of Duran Duran's earliest hits, making the video's release date around 1980-81. This has always been one of my favorite Duran Duran songs, with Simon Lebon's voice, Nick Rhodes synth play, and another one of John Taylor's driving bass lines. Enjoy the band's attempt at a futuristic-new-age motif, Simon Lebon's Belinda Carlisle-esque dancing, the somewhat strange earth facts spliced within the video, Andy Taylor's bleach blond moppish haircut, and Roger Taylor's drumming. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
