Yet another- #1 hit that was from a movie soundtrack. This was from the James Bond movie of the same name. Duran Duran’s second and final #1 hit. If I were to name a Top 10 for Duran Duran I don’t think either one of their #1’s make the list- their other #1 was ‘The Reflex’ from 1984. My favorite Duran Duran song would be ‘[Reach Up For The ]Sunrise’ which only made it to #89 on the singles chart. Some trivia to tell your friends- ‘A View To A Kill’- Duran Duran the only Bond movie theme single- to ever reach #1 in the Billboard Hot 100.
