"Girl Panic!" is a Duran Duran song, originally released on the All You Need Is Now album (iTunes download) on December 21, 2010 and on 21/22 March, 2011 (CD version). The track was also released as a 7" vinyl single on April 16, 2011, featuring artwork designed by Clunie Reid.

About the songEdit

The song was released from Duran Duran's 13th studio album All You Need Is Now, which began production in February 2010 with producer Mark Ronson.

During an interview on Daily Bacon, Simon Le Bon said the song had been around for about two years. Originally called "Home Wrecker", "Bone Wrecker", "Brain Wrecker", "Tall Hours", "Ice Breaker", until he read something about Carl Sagan and called the track "Pale Blue Planet". Mark Ronson later said the song should be about girls and the following day Nick Rhodes appeared with new lyrics and the track "Girl Panic" was formed.

Music videoEdit

The much-anticipated music video was directed by Jonas Akerlund and filmed by Erik Sohlström, shot on location at the Savoy hotel in central London on 6/7 June 2011. This is Duran Duran's 41st official music video and stars top supermodels Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, Yasmin Le Bon, Eva Herzigova and Naomi Campbell. Stefano Dolce and Domenico Gabbanna of Harpers Bazaar also feature.

What makes this video unique is that the supermodels actually become Duran Duran, with Simon Le Bon portrayed by Naomi, herself. The artistically shot and edited music video includes a sequence of interviews and enthralling clips of what models do on a daily basis: Writhing over floors like they're having seizures, strutting down hallways in five inch stiletto booties, and waking up in Balmain dresses, drenched in last night's eau de chambord.

The video was released on 8 November 2011 (duration: 9 minutes 35 seconds).

A second music video was created via the Genero TV Contest, designed and made by Alan Hughes. It's a story of boy meets a girl with ray-gun eyes and panic ensues.

LyricsEdit

I came by invitation to General Chelsea Mayhem 

then going on to somewhere

Yes I was going somewhere



A Single Random meeting with your eyes

and I am beaten.

And now I'm going nowhere, I know I'm going nowhere



With all the voices in my head

The clever words I never said

Of all the things to happen



In a girl Panic

That's driving naked through my mind

It's a crush panic she's got me atomized



You beg me to get closer

Dress falling off your shoulder

The heat is wrapping 'round us

This city strapped around us



Cause now I sense your mission 

is my coming demolition

And you just hold me under

I know I'm going under



With all the voices in my head

The clever words I never said

And you just let it happen



In a girl Panic

That's driving naked through my mind

It's a crush panic, she's got me atomized

In a girl Panic, the Midnight traffic in her eyes

Like a hypnotic, and I am mesmerized.



You know you know I want you

I know you know I want you

With all the voices in my head

The clever words I never said

And you just let it happen



In a girl Panic

That's driving naked through my mind

It's a crush panic, she's got me atomized

In a girl Panic

The Midnight traffic in her eyes

Like a hypnotic, and I am mesmerized.

In a girl Panic

It's a crush panic

She's a hypnotic, 

It's a Girl Panic
