Duran Duran: Hungry Like The Wolf

Initially, Duran Duran failed to break into the U.S. market. However, MTV placed the "Hungry Like the Wolf" video into heavy rotation. The group then gained much exposure that the song peaked at the third spot of the Billboard Hot 100. The music video won the first Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video in 1984. The music video was described as lush and cinematic. Duran Duran were getting zero radio airplay at the time, and MTV wanted to try to break new music. The instruments used are keyboards, bass guitar, drums, and guitar.
