Flashback Friday: Come Undone by Steele

This groovy-sad masterpiece was one of the first cassette singles I ever purchased, a distinction that also belongs to Guns N’ Roses’ “Live and Let Die” and EMF’s “Lies.” Duran Duran never did anything for me until “Come Undone,” all cold and lonely-sounding. It goes without saying that in 1993 I had no personal understanding of what the death of a long-term relationship felt like, but even then I sensed that the vibe of this song really nailed it.

Plus, the video is awesome. Props to whoever came up with the idea of filming in an aquarium, and check out the vintage early-1990s fashion and hair styling on these guys. Blouses and ruffles galore!

Double yay for this song and video. The match cut from shark tail to woman’s foot at the end is killer.
