Everybody Have Fun Tonight- Wang Chung Decomposition
This is an iconic song with an iconic video. We didn't know the words to this song before sitting down to record this episode, but it feels like we picked a good one. Babylon? The edge of oblivion? Strong words?The song is excellent, and we are all very glad that it wasn't a ballad. We are also not sure that it was appropriate to have on Alvin and the Chipmunks or Veggie TalesThings get sexyRock out with your chung outInsert finger guns hereHave fun, wang chunge-mail: DecompositionPod@gmail.comtwitter: Decomp_podhttps://www.facebook.com/decompositionpod

NEM#122: Jack Hues (from Wang Chung) Plays Jazz and Prog
Nakedly Examined Music Podcast
Jack fronted Wang Chung for five albums in the '80s, left the limelight to produce, and got a jazz combo going by 2000 which he's released five albums with, reformed Wang Chung, and only now is having a debut solo release, the double album Primitif. We discuss "Whitstable Beach" from that album, "Class War and Sex War" by Jack Hues and the Quartet from A Thesis on the Ballad (2015), and "Brahms Blues" by The-Quartet from Illuminated. (2006) We conclude by listening to "To Live and Die in L.A." by Wang Chung from Ochesography (2019). For more see jackhues.com. Hear more Nakedly Examined Music. Like our Facebook page.
