"First Impression" is a song by Duran Duran, released on the album Liberty by Capitol-EMI in 1990.

About the songEdit

The song was written by Duran Duran, who also produced the track with Chris Kimsey. The song was recorded at London's Olympic Studios, with the final recording sessions starting on 9 October 1989.

"First Impression" begins slowly, then moves from piano to rock.

During the band's hiatus in 1992 when John Taylor returned to his wife in Los Angeles, the other members of Duran Duran began working on a few cover songs for what would later become the Thank You album. At one point Warren Cuccurullo played a slow guitar riff derived from this song "First Impression", which sparked the quick creation of "Come Undone".

LyricsEdit

(A Rock-n-roll star)

He turns on the animal, it's that time of day,
Here comes little johnny from the back streets of the UK
He's got the answer it doesn't go away
He's gonna treat you right
Yeah he's gonna change the world tonight (world tonight)

The lasting first impression, is what you're looking for!
I said oh!,
Is that your first impression?
And is that good enough for you?


He don't want illusions
A power glory ride,
Doesn't run with the neighborhood shadows -
Wanna let your body slide
He won't give up, and he won't give in
And he won't let up until he gets inside your pretty skin
(I said Ohh!)

(chorus)

He turns on the animal it's that time of day,
To make a little honey in the backstreets of the UK
And he loves the noise, and he loves to play
Just living here and now boys cuz tomorrow's on the way
(I said Ohh!)

(chorus)

Good enough for you, (good enough for you)
Enough for you, (enough for you)
And is that good enough for you?

Good enough for you, (good enough for you)
Enough for you, (enough for you)
And is that good enough for you?

The possibility
Seize the possibility
To seize the opportunity
To seize the possibility
To turn on the animal

I said Oh!

(chorus) (chorus)

Good enough for you, (good enough for you)
Enough for you, (enough for you)
And is that good enough for you?

Good enough for you, (good enough for you)
Enough for you, (enough for you)
And is that good enough for you...?
