The song was dedicated to three of the band’s fallen friends: record producer Alex Sadkin, artist Andy Warhol, and Simon Le Bon‘s childhood friend David Miles. Le Bon has since said that “Shame” is the first part of a trilogy of songs written as a tribute to Miles, the other songs being “Ordinary World” and “Out of My Mind“.

This blog is all about respect, appreciation and love for all things 80s. Growing up in the “Decade of Excess”, music played a major role in my life. Many times, I found myself loving album tracks or singles that failed to crack the Billboard Top 40 lists each week. 30 years later, we have this blog (and my list of 1,960 singles) to rewind and share all of the songs that were released as singles, but failed to crack the Billboard Top 40.
I appreciate all of your comments, feedback, stories….and more selfishly, your likes, retweets and mentions on social media.
