"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
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.
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).

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
