Duran Duran - A view to a kill ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46bkXgxb66E )
Co-written with John Barry, who knows his modulations. The song starts has quite a few surprising modulations which flow really nicely and builds to the chorus. The transition back to the verses may seem a little forced, but it's absolutely worth a little studying.

All the best,
