Musical Interlude: Come Undone (1993)

Duran Duran's 2nd single from their self titled CD, otherwise known as "The Wedding Album", was also one of their more, ah, interesting videos.

"Come Undone" is layered in some unconnected images tied to a central theme. Most jarring of these is the reveal of a common man coming home from work and stripping to reveal he's also a cross-dresser. Mind you, this was less than a year after "The Crying Game", and all of its attendant controversy. Somehow, the use of a woman submerged underwater in chains trying to escape seems tame by comparison.........
