"Michael You've Got A Lot To Answer For" is a song by Duran Duran, released on the album Medazzaland by Capitol-EMI-Virgin on 14 October 1997.

About the songEdit

The song was written by Simon Le Bon for his friend Michael Hutchence, which is eerily prophetic. This is a ballad that features natural sounding vocals by Le Bon.

The track was recorded in 1996, then released on Medazzaland only a month before Hutchence's death. Song lyrics include:

"Trust you to get caught up in somebody's war; you'll come out of it all intact, I'm sure.
Just remember what friends were put here for;
Michael, you've got a lot to answer for, and I know that you're gonna call ... if you need me."

Duran Duran toured to support the album when Hutchence died, and Le Bon found the song too difficult to perform anymore so it was cut from the set for the remainder of the tour. However during subsequent Duran Duran tours, it was included as a tribute.

LyricsEdit


I came over your place today in a roundabout sort of way
Nothing holding me just the company gentle killing of the afternoon

Don't ever try to be anymore
Michael you've got a lot to answer for
You unlocked some of the doors to my soul

And I don't see you for awhile thinking of you will make me smile
You never bother me with responsibility misbehaving in candlelight

Don't ever try to give anymore
Michael you've got a lot to answer for
You got me waking up right to the world

Trust you to get caught up in somebody's war
you'll come out of it all intact I'm sure 
Just remember what friends were put here for
Michael you've got a lot to answer for and I know that
you're gonna call if you need me
When you need me, if you need me
