    Clarinets require more skill, they require proper tongue technique as well

    My primary play instrument since I was 9 is tenor sax, but I play all sax varieties including soprano, clarinet, flute and trumpet. One of the hardest skills is being able to double tongue - quickly and barely flicking the tip of the tongue over the tip of the reed so as to quickly stop vibration only but not altogether or disrupt air flow (you do this when playing things like rapid succession staccato notes (16th or 32nd notes).

    I've gotten marriage proposals out of my ability to double tongue.

    My favorite one artistically is the Talking Heads video. But the video that I think sums up the '80s best is this:

    Aside from guitar, I still have and play a tenor sax as well. With the sax, your tongue needs to be as nimble as your fingers need to be for guitar. That is where all of the expression of the sound comes from. Double tonguing requires a lot of practice, but once mastered, brings you to the next level in terms of the sounds you can produce. And, with regard to your marriage proposals, the technique brings out great compliments during a wide array of activities.

    I haven't picked up a trumpet in over a decade but I'm fairly confident I could master it again in no time due to tonguing practice during other activities.

    I started playing flute in the sixth grade and still play a couple of times a week. My mission before I die however is to learn oboe. I love the sound of that instrument.

    The 14 minute film version of New Moon On Monday jump started me into puberty.

    My sweet Lord John Taylor and Simon Lebon were epically hot in that video.

    Ahhhhh grasshoppah - Duran Duran held the record for the million dollar plus extravaganza that was The Wild Boys video, directed by Russell Mulcahy, yes the same guy who directed Highlander (as well as a whack load of DD videos, from Rio to Save a Prayer to Hungry Like the Wolf).

    Godley and Creme were responsible for Girls on Film.

    Why yes, I am a Duranie, why do you ask?

    Okay, I had my Wheaties (also from the 80's) so I'm going to disagree with you here. However I will admit my proof is from the inflation adjusted column.

    List of most expensive music videos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Damn I took another look and there is that little (+) thingy next to Duran Duran. I hate those little (+) thingy's.
