"Taste the Summer" is a song by Duran Duran, released on the album Astronaut by Epic Records on 11 October 2004.

About the song Edit

The song was produced by the five original members of Duran Duran and Don Gilmore.

"Taste the Summer" was written during demo sessions for the Astronaut album, which began in the south of France in June 2001. The band wrote more than 30 songs during the demo sessions that continued into 2002 and 2003.

Duran Duran signed a record deal with Epic Records in June of 2004. The Astronaut songs including "Still Breathing" were given a final polishing with producer Don Gilmore at Sphere Studios in London, and then mixed by Jeremy Wheatley in June and July.

The song has techno undertones with a Brian Ferry style flavour. The track features backing vocals by Tessa Niles, who had previous worked on two Duran Duran albums, Notorious and Thank You.

Lyrics Edit

Doo doo doo doobeedoo

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doobeedoo

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo



Doo doo doo doobeedoo

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

(Taste the summer, you can taste the summer)



Can you, can you taste the summer?

I do, I find it in your mouth



Now if I have a weakness it's for sweetness

and it's... floating on your breath, the sweetest melody



Doo doo doo doobeedoo

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

(Taste the summer, you can taste the summer)



Sure we can make it till the evenings

Cool haze is reflected off your thighs



Long days are coming up and staying up and playing

music of the falling stars, a melody (melody...)



Doo doo doo doobeedoo

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

(Taste the summer, you can taste the summer)
