Wang Chung

The other day I watched To Live and Die In L.A. – the 1985 thriller starring William Petersen as a Secret Service agent and Willem Dafoe as the creepy counterfeiter he’s trying to take down. It was totally garish and dated, but also entertaining in that retro-nostalgic kind of way. The same goes for Wang Chung – the British New Wave/pop band that provided the theme song to the movie and had a few other notable hits in the ‘80s. Like many groups from that era, Wang Chung has broken up and reunited a few times and even crafted some new songs, though everyone really only wants to hear “Everybody Have Fun Tonight.” With Love Vigilantes.
