Song of the Day: Duran Duran - New Moon on Monday

Like INXS, Duran Duran is a band I liked growing up that I figured I'd hate when I tried them again as an adult...but ended up still enjoying.  Call it a guilty pleasure or what have you, but Duran Duran made some incredible singles in their day, and even without the benefit of the videos, the songs endure.

It takes about three seconds to realize this song is from the '80s, and admittedly, the verses of "New Moon on Monday" are pretty cheesy.  But the chorus more than redeems the song, with the double-tracked vocals and a great guitar line.  Good luck getting this out of your head.
