It was evident that Duran Duran had to come up with a second single that could emulate the successful first impression of their debut single Planet Earth. It resulted in the release of the punk ‘esque’ Careless Memories in April 1981. However, this was not the band’s or indeed their Management’s decision. That was left to their record label EMI whom later decided, that after the dissapointing chart position of Careless Memories, they left the choice of future single releases with the band. The highest UK chart position was a disappointing No. 37.
