Forgotten Songs! – This Week – (Reach Up For The) Sunrise

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them very rarely that they can create a sense of nostalgic for you, the listener. So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


(Reach Up For The) Sunrise – Duran Duran

Today we are looking at a track from the hugely popular English pop rock band Duran Duran. Today we are looking at the first track that they released since 1985.

On the 3rd August 2004, Duran Duran released the single called (Reach Up For The) Sunrise. It was written by Simon le Bon, John Taylor, Roger Taylor, Andy Taylor and James Bates and was released under the record label of epic.

For the comeback single, it did really well around the world and went into the top 10 in Belgium (3), Denmark (6), Europe (9), Hungary (1), Italy (2), Scotland (7) and Spain (6). The single did really well in the United Kingdom and went into the charts at number 5.

The song has been used a few times in the media including the opening sequence to Sunrise on Seven Network in Australia and an episode of Las Vegas.

I really liked this song, it was catchy and had a great chorus to it, it is a really uplifting song.
