You only come out at night

Seriously, can Timber/Timba take a break for even one damn second? From their upcoming CD, Red Carpet Massacre, this track by Duran Duran is, really, actually, truly, a fucking Justin Timberlake and Timbaland song. I don't really know what Duran Duran contribute. It's a good song, don't get me wrong, I'm digging it, but it feels too much like a desperate attempt by a band 50% known for it's hotness to capture the teenaged hearts they once knew.

I saw Duran Duran in concert a few years ago, and they were fucking great. Good sound, good vibe, and, believe it or not, Le Bon Bon mos def had that sexual control down. But it was very natural for him, on the cheeky side, and this song feels too forced. Nothing to do but wait and see, though.
