Serious
Duran Duran Lyrics


Oh, woman you make me feel, like I'm on fire
Oh, woman you make it real, it's the only way for me
So, if we sometimes fight, doesn't mean we got problems
Ain't always black and white, who cares anyway?
Ooh - doesn't have to be serious
Ooh - doesn't have to be serious
(serious)
Doesn't have to be serious
Doesn't have to be serious
Oh baby you get so wild, Mmm too much understanding
Oh baby you're such a child, put up with all the tears and cryin'
Don't worry if you're confused, we all tend to be sometimes
The whole world is getting used, its just the way it is...
Maybe right, Oh, but maybe wrong
Doesn't have to be serious, being hard isn't being strong
Doesn't have to be serious, fighting for love, fighting for pain
Ooh doesn't have to be serious, and if you win, oh what do you gain?
Doesn't have to be serious..
Ooh, doesn't have to be serious maybe right, Ooh, but maybe wrong
Ohh doesn't have to be serious, fighting for love, fighting for pain
Ooh doesn't have to be serious, and if you win, oh what do you gain?
Ooh doesn't have to be serious, maybe right, oh but maybe wrong
Doesn't have to be serious, being hard, isn't being strong
Doesn't have to be serious, fighting for love, fighting for pain
Ohh doesn't have to be serious and if you win...

Underrated? By whom?

Extremely underrated..... prob one of my favorite songs of theirs.. I know this album did horrible but it's a shame it didn't chart. Such a gem from this period other than stating the obvious which would be the wedding album containing ordinary world from them.

Undeniably one of their best songs but made no impact on the charts. From biggest band in the world to zero at the turn of the nineties and then back again in style with Ordinary World in 1993 after being written off. A band with talent to burn never given the credit deserved as musicians and song writers. The fact they kept going despite a fickle public shows the music mattered. Serious sounds tremendous even 24 years later just as I thought it always would in the hot summer of 1990.

@absoluteacw Loved S and the R T and still do, the instrumental Tiger Tiger is still a personal favourite, stuff NME.

@boredreiver I appreciate your comments. Their fan base back then are mainly females, teenagers and slightly older. It's natural. They had a huge amount of success as a teenybop band in a incredibly short space of time. I actually believe that NME were not envious of them. Perhaps they didn't quite sit with their politics. NME were seen as the paper for a certain type of musician and Duran didn't fit that to them. Duran represented the way music was based too much on appearance and I believe NME didn't agree with it and the way it was evolving. I remember reading that if Prime Minister Thatcher had of been in a band it would be their band! Duran forever on the covers of all the teenybop magazines of that time. When Seven and the Ragged Tiger was released it was a letdown to many people. Like they'd took their fans for granted. I think Duran admitted words to that effect. I've watched clips of them today and they appear decent guys and get on well. I personally believe that many who write of Duran today as this gargantuan band of the 1980s do not remember that era or just wallow in hazy fake nostalgia. They will have a fanbase and it appeals to those today. Well done for doing what they still enjoy.

@absoluteacw They aren't, they are a really good band. The problem others have with them is, at their peak, they were all really good-looking and had no problem with trading on their success. It's the kind of thing NME types hate, mainly because they're jealous. DD were also very smart in appealing to a female audience, women control most spending so they would always have some kind of income from their music. In addition, they can still release new stuff 40 years into their career which appeals to their fans. They really are one of the most unfairly criticised bands ever.
