"I Believe" / "All I Need to Know" is a song medley by Duran Duran, released as the B-side to their single "All She Wants Is" by Capitol-EMI on 24 December 1988.

About the song medleyEdit

This was written during sessions for the Big Thing album, but it didn't make it onto the album.

On the aforementioned single, the song is listed as a medley, presumably referring to the two halves of the title, "I Believe" and "All I Need to Know". "I Believe" comprises the main instrumental part of the song and can be heard on its own in bootlegged form on The Medicine. "All I Need to Know" however is so far not known to exist in any form.

It has never been played live.

Ask Katy triviaEdit

"Hi Katy! I was wondering…of all the B-sides and unreleased songs, which one do the guys wish they would’ve put on an album or maybe would have released as a single even? Just curious. Thanks. Michael"

  • "Hi Michael. The consensus is that "Secret Oktober" should have been on the third album & a song called "I Believe" / "All I Need to Know" would have made a good addition to the Big Thing album however, they think the fact that some of these songs escaped the albums makes them a little more special as B-sides/bonus tracks."

Song versionsEdit

  • "I Believe" / "All I Need to Know" (Medley) - 5:01
  • "I Believe" / "All I Need to Know" (Extended Demo) - 6:29 (bootleg, Big Thing Extras)
  • "I Believe" (Instrumental) - 5:03 (bootleg, The Medicine)

There is only one officially-released version of the song; the others are bootlegged demos. The extended demo sounds almost identical to the final, released version, but with extended instrumental parts and a somewhat slower tempo, taking the song to over six-and-a-half minutes in length.

LyricsEdit

The taxman's in the pocketbook
The pressmen are by the bar
And all the world is at your door
It's strange that you should lock it up
And preach an open heart
But you know what they're waiting for

You can turn your face away now
And don't think twice
I'm just the ordinary guy
You used to know
I'm not after your money
Or even your advice
I believe you'll follow me
It's all I need to know
To walk away

I was tempted by the devil in
His deep blue swimming pool
Until the devil's make-up ran
And my future's in the stranglehold
Of ever-changing rules
I don't intend to understand

You can stop pretending now
That I had you fooled
I'm still the ordinary guy
You used to know
I'm not after your money
To paralyze my soul
I believe you'll follow me
It's all I need to know
Promise me you'll try to understand
Before I go
And walk away

You can turn your face away now
And don't think twice
I'm just the ordinary guy
You used to know
I'm not after your money
Or even your advice
I believe you'll follow me
It's all I need to know
Promise me you'll try to understand
Before I go

(All I need to, all I need to)
All I need to know
(All I need to, all I need to)
All I need to know...
