Can you tell me what a Wang Chung is?

"Change Of Heart (Extended Version)" - Cyndi Lauper

In 1986 the 2nd single from her 2nd LP, "True Colors", peaked at number 3. Life's funny ain't it? Listen for The Bangles backing up Cyn on this tune presented here in it's extended glory.

"Let's Go (Shep's Mix)" - Wang Chung

All so you can Wang Chung tonight. There are rumors The Wangers are going to reunite again sometime this year at a venue somewhere on this planet. If you go to: http://www.myspace.com/wangchungtheband - you can hear their version of Nelly's "Hot In Herre" (I kid you not?!?) . Me and the rest of my heathens. Ugh! Ugh!

"Communication (Extended Mix)" - The Power Station

Man, what a record this was! This band was rockin'. The Power Station was born during a break from Duran Duran's schedule and was named for the place it was recorded at in New York City (now called Avatar Studios) . Before Robert Palmer, the rest of the band - John and Andy Taylor and Tony Thompson - approached Mick Jagger, Billy Idol, Mars Williams, Richard Butler, and Mick Ronson about being the frontman. This is the first track they recorded together as a group and it inspired them to do an entire LP. Sadly, Palmer and Thompson both died in 2003. I couldn't see any of the other guys mentioned as a singer and Tony Thompson beat the ever-loving crap outta those drums. Rest in peace, guys.

Thanks for the Cyndi Lauper track. I'll download this later today, but I wanted to drop a thanks comment now.

If I'm not mistaken, the group name was originally 'Huang Chung', which is Chinese for 'Yellow bell'. Just so you know...
