"New Religion" as written by Roger Andrew Taylor, John Taylor, Andy Taylor, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes....
I've been now sauntering out and down a path sometime
It takes me nowhere which I knew
I need a reason
Call it treason
Maybe catch her I don't know
Too Much to know

bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
Lady screaming, lady leave
'cause sometimes people stare
Coming down, electric chair
And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

don't know why this evil follows me
So why is he trying to follow me?
How many reasons do they need?
I might just be right this time
I might just believe this time

its a new religion
I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
I've something to see, I can't help myself
(its a new religion)

    General Commentthis is ok, not one of their best. if you want cool duran duran covers (and i know you do, you little monkeys) get or download 'hungry like the wolf' by reel big fish or 'the chauffeur' by deftones. neech. anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentBlah, such laziness. Way to copy and paste this from the Duran Duran page. Only about half of what's above is in the Jimmy Eat World version. TAKE SOME PRIDE IN YOUR WORK. Nonetheless, this song is excellent.

    General CommentA peer to peer file sharing software is where you're most likely to get this.

    Are there any other jimmy covers aside from firestarter? Because they're both absolutely brilliant.

    General Comment1. Duran Duran is the name of an evil villain in the 1968 movie Barbarella starring Jane Fonda. The band liked that it was from a movie (the club they used to play at was called Barbarella too I think) and that it wasn't something many people knew about.

    2. I submitted the lyrics of New Religion to the Duran Duran page just a few days ago so therefore whoever submitted these lyrics wouldn't have gotten them from here.

    General CommentJimmy Eat World also does a cover of Heatmiser's "Half Right", which can be found on their latest EP, Stay On My Side Tonight. It's amazing, I recommend you get it.

    Also, there is a cover of Wham!'s song "Last Christmas," which is very cool too.
