THE SEVENTH STRANGER - DURAN DURAN

O Duran Duran surgiu em 1978, em Birmingham, um dos principais pólos industriais da Inglaterra. Em 1984, quando era formado por Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Roger Taylor, Andy Taylor e Simon Le Bon, o grupo foi o primeiro a trazer a tecnologia de vídeo em seus shows de estádio, o que pode ser observado na performance a seguir.
"The Seventh Stranger" [que não chegou a figurar entre os maiores sucessos da banda] é a última música do lado B do LP Seven and the Ragged Tiger, lançado em 1983.

Those words are all remainders
Echos growing in the heart of twilight
They lay back laughing at naivety's star.
Awaken all those whispers,
The dusty shadow of a passing favour
I wouldn't say that you were ruthless or right
I couldn't see from so far.
Was I chasing after rainbows?
One thing for sure - you never answered when I called.
And I wiped away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger...

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down -
In the eyes of the stranger!

Can't tell the real from reflections
When all these faces look the same to me
In every city such a desolate dream.
Some days are strange to number
Some say the seventh sounds a little bit stranger
A year of Sundays seems to have drifted right by -
I could have sworn in one evening.
And I'm not seized in desperation,
No steel reproaches on the table from before.
But I still can feel those splinters of ice
I look through the eyes of a stranger...

(chorus)

I must be chasing after rainbows
One thing for sure you never answer when I call.
And I wipe away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger...

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
Walking away like a stranger

(chorus)

In the eyes of the stranger...
In the eyes of the stranger...
In the eyes of the stranger...
