Hungry Like A Wolf by Duran Duran (1982)

Hungry Like A Wolf by Duran Duran (1982)
"Hungry Like the Wolf" is a song by the British new wave band Duran Duran. Written by the band members, the song was produced by Colin Thurston for the group's second studio album Rio.

"Hungry Like the Wolf" was released in the United Kingdom on 4 May 1982; the next week the song debuted at number 35 on the UK Singles Chart, 6 weeks later it reached its peak at number 5, remaining 6 weeks in the top 10, and 12 weeks in total. Despite achieving commercial success with several top hits in the United Kingdom, the band failed to enter in the US market.



Their first album did not chart and failed to yield a hit single. "Hungry Like the Wolf" was released in the United States on 7 June 1982 but did not chart. At first, US radio were reluctant to play the song, but when the newly emerging MTV began playing the accompanying music video in heavy rotation, the exposure pushed "Hungry Like the Wolf" onto AOR playlists. The song entered Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in August 1982 and reached the top of the chart in January 1983.
