Duran Duran - Last Night in the City (2015)

Tabbed by: trevgreg
Email: trevgreg1227@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

This is the second song off of the band’s 2015 album Paper Gods and is pretty straightforward for the most part.
The choruses here mostly follow a version of the famous I–V–vi–IV progression, which is actually the first
Duran Duran song I’ve ever identified as using it. The chorus in Change the Skyline also uses the same chords
with that progression in a different order and key as well.

Intro/Chorus/Middle 8: Dm-F-C-A#
Verses: A-C-F-C-Dm

Substitute an A chord for the A# each second time through the chorus riff. That riff also ends on Dm-F-C in
the transitions to the verses and otherwise, with either just the A chord or the verse riff coming in before
Simon starts the verses.

[Intro]
Dm            F
I'm not gonna sleep tonight
C                A#
'Til the morning fills the sky
Dm               F
No one's getting left behind
        C
This is our time
        A
This is our time
Dm                 F        C
We gonna live this night, yeh
A#
Live it like it's our last night
Dm         F        C
Coz nobody cares if there's
No tomorrow

A  C  F  C Dm

[Verse 1]
A                          C           F                      C    Dm
I'm not thinkin' ‘bout the future, the future, it’s somewhere out there
A                    C      F          C   Dm
We're all busy being human, human, we remember
A                      C           F     C          Dm
Hearts beating all around me, together, now they’re surrounding me
A                     C       F                       C     Dm
This is how we get connected, running out the shadows into light

[Chorus 1]
Dm                 F       C
We gonna live this night, yeh
A#
Live it like it's our last night
Dm         F        C

We gonna love this night, yeh

Stars up in the air, yeh
It's our last night in the city

[Verse 2]
A                      C         F                  C    Dm
I've been travelling around now, big world, with my brothers
A                  C          F                  C       Dm
Always movin' to a new town, no time, to put the roots down
A                C       F           C         Dm
We can't stop believing, can’t stop, now we believe in you
A                               C              F                       C       Dm
Coz when you're standing in the spotlight, the only thing that matters is tonight

[Chorus 2]
Dm                 F        C
We gonna live this night, yeh
A#
Live it like it's our last night
Dm         F             C
Coz nobody cares if there's

It's our last night in the city
