TIMEX SOCIAL CLUB "RUMORS" (1986)
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
I have to admit that I only have vague memories of this song. Rumors was a one hit wonder for Timex Social Club and reached #13 in the UK during September 1986. The song also reached #8 in the Billboard Hot 100 (U.S.) and #1 in Canada. It featured on the band's only studio album Viscious Rumors.
The American R&B/Hip-Hop group were active between 1982 and 1987, and were originally called The Timex Crew. They were also one of the first artists to use the New Jack Swing music style.
Follow-up singles Mixed Up World and Thinkin' About Ya both reached #15 in the U.S. R&B Charts.
