Posted by DjPaulT on 20th December 2011

John Taylor (born Nigel John Taylor on June 20,1960 in Birmingham, England) is a British bass guitarist and co-founder of the New Romantic band Duran Duran.

“I Do What I Do (Theme For 9½ Weeks)” was a 1986 single performed by Duran Duran bassist John Taylor, giving his first solo singing performance during a hiatus in Duran Duran’s career ans also features Michael Brecker performing saxophone. It was the main single released from the 9½ Weeks Original Soundtrack.

“I Do What I Do” was co-written by Jonathan Elias, Michael Des Barres and John Taylor, after Des Barres was approached about writing a song for the movie’s soundtrack.
