    6/16: Wang Chung



    From the official site:

    This London-based band consisted of vocalist/guitarist Jack Hues, bassist Nick Feldman, and drummer Darren Costin. Huang Chung released their first single "Isn't It About Time We Were on Television?" in 1980, which led to a contract with Arista Records. The group's first album, Huang Chung, was released 1982. By 1984, Wang Chung had changed the spelling of thir name and released Points on a Curve. With "Dance Hall Days" and "Don't Let Go", the band hit the Top 40 twice in the U.S. "To Live and Die in L.A.," the theme song from William Friedken's thriller, just missed making the Top 40 in 1985. Also in 1985, the band changed labels and drummer Costin left the band. Hues and Feldman continued as a duo and released" Mosaic in 1986. The album was their biggest hit, launching the number two hit "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" and the Top Ten "Let's Go!" In 1989, they released The Warmer Side of Cool, which spent a mere six weeks on the charts, spawning the minor hit, "Praying to a New God."

    Wang Chung is also performing:

    "Hot in Herre" (Nelly)

    Are they still wearing that much pink, or are they more "butch" now.

    Even as a teenager, "Everybody Wang Chung" was just too much. That, and their name always made me think of Chun King canned chow mein. Kung Pao would have been much better

    If truth is relative, how do you know?

    So do I. I don't know if I can stand to listen to "Everybody have fun tonight". That song sticks in the head for days.

    I like them.. always have. EXCEPT the video to "Everybody Have Fun Tonight".. it prit near puts me into convulsions to watch it. As a matter of fact, I CAN'T watch it.

    Their family stories were adorable! Also, I thought they did pretty good w/the Nelli song!

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
