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.
Now, I'm sure that you'll agree that the bassline by Nick Beggs is pure quality. Indeed, virtually all of their singles featured some fantastic basslines. You can view videos for all of the band's singles on our Kajagoogoo playlist page.
For those of you into house music then you should enjoy this SirAiva remix from Soundcloud.
