Call my name, and I'll be there. Dr. Duran Duran escapes the punishment of the Matmos at the height of British pop group Duran Duran's 1980s popularity. Mistaking the cries of teenage girls at crowded concerts for devotees screaming his name, the Doctor makes his way to Earth so he can lead his faithful masses. Once he discovers the kids don't want an evil Doctor, he goes about trying to destroy the source of the real desires a concert taking place at the Oakland (Calif.) Colesium.Written by
This is by far the most innovative video collections. This came out in 1985 and has a look and production values as good as anything that is out there now. Duran Duran have never gotten the credit they deserve as pioneers of the video genre. Most of the credit is handed to Michael Jackson and Madonna who I am afraid had never made anything in the 80s as well as "Is there something I should know?", which to me is one of the most perfect music videos. Arena is a collection of live performances by the band bonded together with a tongue and cheek plotline including the band's namesake, the evil sex fiend Dr. Duran of Barbarella fame. It's all in fun and was especially pleasing to a 15 year old fan. I give it a 10 with deep affection.
