I hear in the Aztec night birds flying overhead Flying far away & leaving me alone Alone in the Aztec night Disowned in the Aztec night. My destination is unclear Each day I ride around I read magazines & books However, never buy I thing From the big store Aztec moon I will climb every mountain Every one before me placed & I will climb up to the stars For to the stars I'm not disgraced Aztec moon I'm going to catch a train To take me far away Far away where I will live alone But never be alone Aztec moon I will climb every mountain Every one before me placed & I will climb up to the stars For to the stars I'm not disgraced Aztec moon

    General CommentStephen Duffy: 'It's quite astounding now but I thought you could take great chunks of The Great Gatsby and sing it. The lyrics to Aztec Moon are from Mexico City Blues by Jack Kerouac. All I'd done at that stage was listen to records and read books. I had no idea about writing from your own experience. I bought my bass from a junk shop on Saltley Gate, I was so embarrassed I didn't play it and it's only when I got it home that I realised it was fretless.

    Though Duran Duran borrows their name from the film Barbarella, perhaps the film borrows the name from Diego Duran.
