“New Moon on Monday” is a song by Duran Duran, released as the band’s tenth single in January 1984.
The second single to be lifted from the band’s 1983 album Seven and the Ragged Tiger, the song was another success, reaching the Top 10 on both the British and American music charts. On 11 February 1984, the single reached #9 on the UK Singles Chart and on 17 March, it reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Inexplicably, it did not chart well in Australia and Scandinavia; territories where its predecessor, “Union of the Snake”, had been a big hit. This trend was reversed with the next single, “The Reflex”, which became a worldwide number one.
In a retrospective review of the song, “New Moon on Monday” was praised by Allmusic journalist Donald A. Guarisco, who wrote: “The music holds the unusual lyrics together by wedding effervescent verse melodies that bounce high and low to a triumphant-sounding chorus with a rousing feel.”
