The remix single "Burning the Ground" was released to radio to promote this album. It was created by producer John Jones by mixing snippets of the band's biggest hits from the previous decade into a new piece of music. However, the track was not included on the Decade album itself. The tracks "My Own Way" and "New Moon on Monday" were also not included, even though both were top 20 hits in the UK.
Decade's track listing included various hits from all of Duran Duran's albums and presented them in mixes that were popular and mainstream among the public. Hence, it includes the Nile Rodgers edit of "The Reflex" and the radio edits of "Hungry Like The Wolf", "Notorious" and "Skin Trade", as well as the Shep Pettibone single mix of "I Don't Want Your Love". Oddly, there are a lot of versions and single edits from the song "Rio", the compilation uses the standard album version, and for "Save A Prayer" the full original album version.
