The Singles 81-85 is a box set comprising of 13 CDs by Duran Duran, released in Europe by EMI on 12 May 2003.

About the box setEdit

This is a collection of singles covering the era from the albums Duran Duran (1981) to Arena (1984), as well as non-album single "A View to a Kill" (1985).

Each CD is supposed to be a faithful copy of the UK vinyl single as it was released in the early 1980s, with all of the B-sides and alternate tracks, and each is packaged in a square cardboard sleeve replicating the original artwork. The thirteen cardboard sleeves are then packaged in a heavy-duty card box.

This was the first time many of these tracks, including B-sides and alternate versions, appeared on CD.

There are at least five songs missing from the collection:

  • "To The Shore", the US B-side to "Planet Earth". This track is available elsewhere on CD, but so are many other tracks included in this collection.
  • "My Own Way" instrumental version. This instrumental mix of the night version appeared on the UK Promo 12 inch single.
  • "New Religion" (Live), the US B-side to "The Reflex". This is not the version which appeared on Arena, but a different performance recorded on 7 February 1984 in Los Angeles.
  • "Girls on Film" (Night Version Alternate Mix). This longer 5:45 version, with different mix balance and camera shutter click intro, was released on the Greek only limited edition 12" single as well as the Dutch and Spainish issues of Carnival.
  • "Girls on Film" (Instrumental). This 5:41 instrumental mix if the Night Version was released on the B-side of the Greek only limited edition 12" single.
