"Last Day on Earth" is a single by Duran Duran, released in Japan from the album Pop Trash by AVEX-Hollywood Records on 7 January 2001.

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 SYN Productions and 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.

LyricsEdit

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
