It's one of Duran Duran's biggest songs with one of their funkiest bass guitar grooves, and in his latest Stone Love Bass Odyssey lockdown series below, John Taylor breaks down 1981's Girls On Film.  

Again his LinnDrum machine makes a guest appearance to full in for DD's sticksman Roger Taylor.

John's clearly loving these tutorials and so are we. Check out his previous episode on the song Planet Earth here
