Decade: Greatest Hits is a greatest hits compilation album and video by Duran Duran, released by Capitol-EMI on 15 November 1989.

About the album and video[]

The remix single "Burning the Ground" was released to radio to promote this compilation. The remix was created by producer John Jones, which mixed snippets of Duran Duran's biggest hits from the previous decade into a new piece of music. However, the remix was not included on the Decade album and video.

On a whole, Decade acted more as a mixed tape of Duran hits, as opposed to an essential album. It cherry picked hits from all the albums and presented them in mixes that were popular and mainstream among the public. Hence, you get the Nile Rodgers edit of "The Reflex" and the radio edits of "Notorious" and "Skin Trade".

Curiously, the compilation (probably due to time constraints) left off one single from each album: "Careless Memories", "My Own Way", "New Moon on Monday", "Meet El Presidente" and "Do You Believe in Shame?". Again, these were probably left off of because Decade was used to drum up mainstream interest in the band.
