Duran Duran recalls their chart-topping success, 'A View To A Kill'

22-Dec-2011 • Bond News

The 80s artists who have made a comeback in the 2000s are still best remembered for their successful number ones: "A View To A Kill" and "The Reflex".

In an interview with Billboard, front men Simon LeBon and Nick Rhodes explained the success:

"What really kicked 'The Reflex' into the stratosphere was the Nile Rodgers remix of it," singer LeBon says of the hit that topped the Hot 100 on June 23, 1984. "He did a really magnificent job of it."

"When you're a kid growing up in the U.K., James Bond becomes a part of your life, a glamourous part of your life." Rhodes says of the band's title theme to the Bond film "A View To A Kill," which hit the top on July 13, 1985. "It's the only James Bond theme to have ever been No. 1. . . I was completely shocked."
