  1. I hate to break it to you but it A-Ha for the Living Daylights no Duran Duran. Duran Duran was for A View To a Kill

    1. Good catch. That whole era runs together for me. Will be my downfall at Tuesday night trivia.

  2. It seems to cut off right at the end. But good introduction to the movie otherwise.
