Musical Interlude: One Night in Bangkok (1983)

In the 80's, there were a greater number of 1-hit wonders, thanks to the emerging allure of MTV.

One of those one-hit wonders was Murray Head, who zoomed up the charts with the driving "One Night in Bangkok", taken from the musical, "Chess". Head's vocals sound like those of actor William Daniels (St. Elsewhere, Knight Rider), who took a turn at musicals a few years earlier ("1776"). Ya don't believe me? Scope it, brother.
