Kajagoogoo - Too Shy (1983)
Released in January 1983, Too Shy
reached #1 in the UK singles chart for two weeks. The song is the
band's most played song and is often included on many 80s compilation
Too Shy was also #1 for five weeks in Germany and reached #5 in the US Billboard Hot 100. The song featured on the band's debut album White Feathers and was played heavily on MTV.
Kajagoogoo started out as Art Nouveau in 1979 (they released one single entitled The Fear Machine) but without lead singer Limahl, who's real name is actually Christopher Hamill - Limahl is an anagram of his surname.
I love the quality of the bass on Too Shy. In particular, check out the Too Shy instrumental Mix and Midnight Mix in the MP3 player above - hope you've got good speakers!
For those of you into house music then you should enjoy this SirAiva remix from Soundcloud.
