"Pretty Ones" is an unreleased Duran Duran song, written by the five original band members during the Astronaut album demo sessions.

About the song Edit

The song was recorded during demo sessions in the South of France, where they continued to write and record intermittently throughout 2002 and 2003.

During this period a teaser CD with short demo versions of a few of the unfinished songs (used to demonstrate the new work to potential labels and producers) was leaked to the Internet and quickly copied throughout the band's fan base. The songs on the CD were "Virus", "Sunrise", "TV vs Radio", "Taste the Summer", "Salt in the Rainbow" and "Pretty Ones".

The band was very unhappy about the leak and with the exception of "Sunrise" which became their first single and "Taste the Summer", the leaked songs were not included in the final track listing of Astronaut. "Virus" later appeared as a bonus track on a Japanese release of Astronaut.

Lyrics Edit

Pony up girl, show and tell - go Chanel on crocodile

Hipster low slung lazy feet

Hit the street latino style



Going down to the disco

Where she's gonna star in some fiasco

Anywhere the party's on

Break of day - San Tropez to Fresno, she's the type



And another thing... (you pretty ones)

We love the way you are

We'll do anything (you pretty ones)

Older than n'est paz

All the pretty ones (you pretty ones)

Love the way you are

You pretty ones (you pretty ones)

La la la la la



Here she comes, off the rail - DNA laced with nicotine

Shame the sun

Walking proud, talking loud for all you glamour queens



We're going down to the disco

And we're gonna grind out a floor show

Everyday's a change

'round the world - Daddy's girl wherever she may be



And another thing... (you pretty ones)

We love the way you are

We'll do anything (you pretty ones)

Older than n'est paz

All the pretty ones (you pretty ones)

Love the way you are

You pretty ones (you pretty ones)

La la la la la
