Musical Monday: The Chauffeur & Duran Duran


"The Chauffeur" is a song off Duran Duran's second album, "Rio." As far as I know, it never climbed any charts, but it is nonetheless a song that's reportedly near and dear to Simon LeBon's heart. It's also a song with a weird video. It's a moody bit of black-and-white film work that has just enough boobage and sexuality to earn itself an R-rating (if such things were applied to music videos).



Yes, Ian Emes directed an extremely interesting and engaging music video. But what does it mean? Your guess is as good as mine. Feel free to offer some in the comments section to this most!

    1. For whatever reason, I mostly picked up their singles and 'Greatest Hits' collections... with the exception of "Arcadia" (which wasn't really Duran Duran, even if it sounded just like them...)
