YouTube Thursday: Everybody Wang Chung Tonight

One of my favorite things about YouTube is the ability to go and find songs from my teenage years, way back in the 80s(!). Holy crap, that doesn't seem like it was 20 years ago.

At any rate, I think this is one of the coolest uses of YouTube and I would hope that more of those nostalgic artists would put their stuff up there and not be so anal about their stuff showing up there. One of my guiltiest pleasures from the 80s was the group Wang Chung which apparently had no Asian members but a very Asian name. They basically had two hits: Dance Hall Days which if you listen to the lyrics make no sense at all.

Their other big hit was one of the roll down the windows on the car and turn it way, way up songs, Everybody Have Fun Tonight. And the video was some stop action thing that is hard to turn off, but probably not something to watch if you have epilepsy. And it with the song is a ton of fun.

Great. Now I have that song in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks, Phil.

I also had visions of a 16 year old Phil Wilson driving down the street with the windows down and this song playing with the wind rushing through his hair. Creepy.
