This two-disc set celebrates Duran Duran's groundbreaking music video legacy, featuring clips for some of the group's most popular songs, including "Hungry like the Wolf," "Wild Boys," "The Reflex," and the racy classic "Girls on Film" in its uncensored form. The track list follows:
Disc 1
  • Planet Earth *
  • Girls on Film (Long Uncensored Version) *
  • The Chauffeur
  • Hungry like the Wolf Save a Prayer
  • Rio
  • Is There Something I Should Know?

      more from this reviewer

      The videos are all what a Duran Duran Fan Expect

      I was quite pleased with the Duran Duran Greatest Hits Video Collection. There were a couple of videos I've never seen nor heard the song. The videos were all in its entirety. However, I wished the group would have included the videos such as "Waiting on the Night" Boat and "Arcadia". Despite those videos not being included, I'm quite pleased with the video collection.

      must have

      It's like watching MTV during the 80's. Man, I couldn;t believe how much I missed the videos. The audio in the DVD also sounded superb!

      'My Own Way' and 'Lonely in your Nightmare' missing too

      Loved it...brought back so many memories of the Golden 80's... I did not only miss 'Nightboat', but also 'My Own Way' and 'Lonely in your Nightmare', two of my favorites. More interview footage would have been great...Maybe thinking of a 'Greatest 2'? WE WANT MORE!!!

      Greatest could of been better.

      Since the greatest videos came out on VHS,I've been waiting for DVD version.It's a great collection of work from the Fab 5 or 3.It could of been better if the whole entire video collection from Nightboat to Out of mind was included in the set.I'm hoping there is some easter eggs that will unlock these great videos.

      Only slightly missed the 'boat'

      This was great. I don't think I got to see Union of the Snake much and I don't believe I saw MOST of the post Arena/Sing Blue Silver videos. I do so much miss Waiting for the Nightboat. I was hoping that it was on this dvd and was highly disappointed. It is one of my most favorites and there's a quick cut to it in Is There Something I Should Know *sigh* Great dvd over-all - would have had TEN stars if Nightboat was on it, too.
