The Notorious album marked a turning point for Duran Duran. After dominating MTV and the pop charts in the early '80s, they fell apart as their success wore them down. Simon LeBon explained in 1988 to Company magazine: "We had been forced by our own desire for success into a stereotype of a teen-idol group. We were spending far more time worrying about clothes, make-up and photo sessions than we were about writing songs. For Notorious, they lost two of their three Taylors: drummer John Taylor became a farmer and guitarist Andy Taylor left for other musical endeavors, including.

1986's Notorious has Andy Taylor contributing on only four songs before leaving to start his solo career, but on the strength of the title track's number two placing and "Skin Trade"'s number 39 mark, the album itself peaked at number 12 in the . and number 16 in the . On the whole, only "Notorious" showed any real. livelihood, thanks to its modern gleam and the catchy stutter of its chorus. Skin Trade" is almost as worthy, thanks to its sultry, seductive air and enchanting but complex rhythmic allure.

The making of Notorious during 1986 was a difficult time for Duran Duran.

Produced by Nile Rodgers & Duran Duran. No-no-Notorious Notorious (Ah) No-no-Notorious. Girls will keep the secrets (uh) So long as boys make a noise Fools run rings to break up Something they'll never destroy Grand Notorious slam (bam) And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit? Don't ask me to bleed about it I need this blood to survive. You own the money You control the witness I'll leave you lonely Don't monkey with my business You pay the prophets to justify your reasons I heard your promise, but I don't believe it That's why I've done it again.
