Bracketology: Duran Duran singles, Finals

Things got much tougher in the semifinal round, but here's what I came up with:
  • Semifinal #1:  "New Moon on Monday" is a great song, but to be honest, not much from Seven and the Ragged Tiger comes close to any of the songs on the Rio, the best album of 1982.
  • Semifinal #2:  These songs are similar in that they don't flow smoothly from section to section still they're catchy as hell.  But when the guitar chords kick in under the glorious chorus of "The Reflex" it suddenly doesn't matter that we don't know what the hell LeBon is singing about. Bonus points for Nile Rodgers remix and John Taylor's underrated funky bass lines.

Check back tomorrow to crown the champion.
