Duran Duran to headline Olympic concert in London

Duran Duran will headline a concert to mark the official start to the 2012 London Olympics. Oh, hell yes. As far as I'm concerned, Simon and the boys should be able to march in the opening parade with their own Duran Duran flag while trumpeteers play The Reflex.

For his part, Mr. Le Bon said the show would be "one of the highlights of the last decade for us." (Wow, I'd say the last *couple* decades.)

The concert, July 27 in Hyde Park, will include bands from each of the four parts of the United Kingdom, according to the Associated Press. Other acts include Snow Patrol from Northern Ireland, Stereophonics from Wales and Scotland's Paolo Nutini. I'd have prefered U2 and Big Country, but we can't have everything. (And I'm so bad at UK geography that I might have just started a holy war with that stupid sentence.)

So assuming Duran Duran plays a shorter-than-average set, what songs HAVE to make the list?
