"To Whom It May Concern" is a song by Duran Duran, released on The Wedding Album by Capitol-EMI on 23 February 1993.

About the song[]

Written by Duran Duran, the song has a sound that fitted in with the alternative rock trends that were starting during the early 1990s.

"To Whom It May Concern" was originally called "Mr. Jones", a song written in response to the manipulation the band had encountered from one of their attorneys. Nick wrote most of the lyrics for the song.

Nick: "What we tend to do with lyrics is try and get Simon to write most of them, but the odd things come up where there’s something that somebody feels strongly about, and one of mine on the album was lawyers, I felt very strongly about that. And er, yes, To Whom It May Concern was... somewhat mine." (source).

The track was recorded, mixed and fully mastered for inclusion on The Wedding Album, however, once learning of the song, the lawyer in question legally forced Duran Duran to discard the recording. With a little creative mixing and overdubbing the song became "To Whom It May Concern" on the final album.

Telephone call for Mr. Bones

Dear Mr. Bones we've had enough and you can try to pull us down

With your pinstripe weasel stuff but word travels in this town

I wouldn't write home about you we're better off without you without you Mr. Bones

Some people feed on other people's trouble some people beat on other people's meat

Some people want to bleed us dry and some people wanna drown on your feet people

He said boys I'll get you more but you gotta pay me by the hour

Anyway you're just another bore who believes he's a superpower

(I wouldn't write home about you)

And you can talk about loyalty but I hope you realize

(We're better off without you, without you)

Since you ate my royalties without you, without you Mr. Bones

This good-bye and as such here and after shall be referred

Notwithstanding or foregoing statements unpreferred

Don't claim you understand when you've not heard a single word a dickey bird

Some people feed on other people's trouble some people beat on other people's meat

Some people wanna bleed us dry and some people gonna drown on your feet

Some people
