About the songEdit
Warren Cuccurullo and Nick Rhodes wrote and recorded a song called "Tomorrow Never Dies" with vocalist Tessa Niles for the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. The song wasn't chosen, so Duran Duran re-recorded it for the Pop Trash album with new lyrics under the title "Last Day on Earth". Produced by TV Mania, this was a departure from previous album material where production was always credited to Duran Duran plus any outside producers.
The track is an uptempo hard rock song, featuring the complex time signature of 5/4 in the verses, which highlights the versatility of Warren Cuccurullo's songwriting and guitar playing.

Duran Duran are:
Mesmerized, you get sucked in by the hype headlights in your eyes Flame burns fast then your soul goes up in smoke Where's your faith in life Now what would you do if there was no tomorrow And where would you go if you knew this was your last day on earth Having the time of your life but you don't realize Play to win so you've got to roll the dice, its a vicious game One false move, that's how fortune's change and you're going down Now what would you do if there was no tomorrow And where would you go, if you knew This was your last day on earth This is the time of your life, you don't realize Now what would you do if you knew this was your last day on earth I'd kiss you goodbye, last chance living Taking, giving, having, losing, needing, loving, waking Standing, hoping, dreaming, smiling, laughing, feeling, crying Wanting something, touching, living You're last day on earth
