I am quite surprised that "Pink Sunshine" only reached #14 in the UK singles chart, as I remember it receiving a lot of airplay on the radio, and it has a very infectious chorus. The song became the 80s girl band's third Top 40 hit and second top 20 hit.

In the video, we see the girls surrounded by lots of party balloons. There are also some geeky looking guys hiding amongst them, for whatever reason. Listen out for Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Relax" style snippet at 2:09 - recognise it? 

Originally called We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It, the quartet formed in Birmingham (England) in 1985 and had four British Top 40 singles during the 1980's, the other three being Love Is The Slug (#31 in 1986), International Rescue (#11 in 1989) and Self! (#24 in 1989).  

"Pink Sunshine" was the first track on the hit album Big Bang, which peaked at #5 in the UK album charts. This was the band's second and final studio album, and was the follow-up to Bostin' Steve Austin

Work started on the third album Out Of This World, but after the single "Your Loss My Gain" stalled at No.100 in the UK singles chart, the album was abandoned due to "musical differences" and Fuzzbox disbanded in 1990.

The band reunited in 2010 for a series of concerts.

The Smash Hits Yearbook 1990 featured an interview with Vickie Perks from Fuzzbox and featured the usual inane questions such as "What have you got in your fridge?" and "Have you ever peed in a bus shelter?". Just in case you were wondering, no she hasn't!
