On Simile and Duran Duran Hit Songs

It's a little known fact that I just made up that the boys of Duran Duran penned their 1992 Top 10 hit, Hungry Like the Wolf, while sitting around the Taylor brothers apartment near dinnertime. It has been widely speculated, I am sure, that  if this idea had been bandied about at any other time of day, the message would have been very different. I offer, then, a brief look into the world of alternative song lyrics.

Ok, I know you just made that up because, as any self respecting teenage girl from the 80s could tell you, the Taylor brothers were not, in fact, brothers. However, partial credit to you for actually knowing that there were two Taylors in Duran Duran!

Argh. I forgot. I'm getting old. There were actually three Taylors, and none of them were brothers!

Aww, crap. You mean I was that close to being convincing?

Yes, but I'm sure that anyone who wasn't a teenage girl in the 80s would have been convinced.

Now, now. That's not fair. NaBloPoMo has been harder this year than it was last year, for some reason.

But you have a point. The well's running dry over here!
