Duran Duran - 848586 - Arena Era
Yes, yes, the Arena movie was sorta dumb, but it had potential. Had they slowed down the process and really worked it, they could've made a great film. Sort of take the WB video and expand it without the cheese. I loved the concept, the costumes, the dancing and the music. It's the story that really sorta sucked.
This is shortly after I first fell in love with the band. I had the folders for school, the stickers, the buttons, the patches, the bandana around the knee. I had a poster of the image I used for the CD picture sleeve above. I wish I had it now. I'd hang it in my bedroom again, but I don't think my wife would let me.
Anyway, I'll post the live album later, with the bonus tracks deleted tracks and all the crowd noise.
I've got the official songs, the official remixes, the fan mixes, the unofficial mixes... and all that.
