Kokolo - Girls on Film (Duran Duran)

Yes, it's the Duran Duran song. And yet, it's not.

Kokolo - Girls On Film (Duran Duran)(mp3)

Here's a golden little Wiki nugget:
Girls on Film was originally written by Andy Wickett, Duran Duran's previous singer before Simon Le Bon. The original demo of the song has a very peculiar sound that differs somewhat from the final album version recorded in 1981. When Wickett left the band, Duran Duran bought the song from him for £600 and made him sign a waiver removing his rights to the song.

From the Soul Shaker, Vol 5 compilation that I posted from yesterday.
