"We Need You" is a song by Duran Duran, released as the B-side to their fifthteenth single "Skin Trade" by Capitol-EMI on 31 January 1987.

About the songEdit

The song was written and recorded in 1986 while the band awaited the return of Andy Taylor for recording sessions. It was written as a plead for Andy to return to the studio.

"We Need You" is the first recording to feature just the three remaining members of Duran Duran - Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Simon Le Bon.

The track wasn't included on the Notorious album, and it was the only original B-side released during the Notorious era. The other B-sides "Winter Marches On" and "Vertigo (Do the Demolition)" were album versions.

LyricsEdit

Time will see we're not searching for a wild excuse
To put emotions back on hold
Too much has gone down we know what you're doing
But do you feel the same way
You look sharp inside your pointed shoes
I have this picture hanging in my room
And I refuse to take you down or shake you down
We could bring you gently round if that's what you choose
For a point of view, I think you'll find it's true
Words like sand just get blown away
But all the same we'd like to say

We need you [Repeat till fade]
