BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
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. It was originally intended to be sung by Lisa Dalbello, but she bowed out at the last minute and John decided he could do the song instead.
The video features John Taylor in a tuxedo, singing the words while watching a private screening of the movie 9½ Weeks. It was directed by Taylor himself.
