The Chauffeur
Duran Duran Lyrics


Out on the tar plains, the glides are moving
All looking for a new place to drive
You sit beside me so newly charming
Sweating dewdrops glisten freshing your side

And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
Way down the lane away, living for another day
The aphids swarm up in the drifting haze
Swim seagull in the sky towards that hollow western isle
My envied lady holds you fast in her gaze

And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart

And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart

Sing blue silver

And watching lovers part, I feel you smiling
What glass splinters lie so deep in your mind
To tear out from your eyes, with a thought to stiffen brooding lies
And I'll only watch you leave me further behind

And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart

And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart

Sing blue silver
Sing, sing, blue silver

(There's more to this kind of camouflage)
(More than just color and shape)
(Who's going now, in to a classiomatic?)

Probably DD's most iconic, but underrated, songs. The way in which the band combined synth sounds with more traditional instruments makes for an exceptional sound. And, of course, Simon LeBond's high octave "sing, sing, blue silver" lines are masterfully crafted. Above all, this video/song was an experimental work of poetry and sound that will probably never be quite equalled.

hear, hear!

Deftones cover of this song is fantastic.

ProjectOWL

While I don't disagree with the sentiment, this post gives off strong American Psycho vibes.

Simon Edgbaston

🔥 Still making great sounds since but this is a personal favourite 🔥

Matt Ma

2021. Not only one of the best Duran Duran songs. One of the best songs ever made. An one of the best videos ever. Duran Duran is a band that continues to last through generations. An will continue to do so.

My absolute favourite, makes me very emotional

Arran Reid

It's 2020 and this has never aged, a true master piece from DD.

Darth_Floersche

DD has something in it that refuses to let their songs aging.
View to a kill still best Bond ST, Wild Boys still best Video of the 80ties, DD still best Pop Band of the 80ties.... Proof me wrong!
