Everybody Wang Chung Four Nights Ago

You know, I think I’ve found a song even drier and more British than the usual monotone New Wave stuff I attempt, and when you imagine this, I think it’ll make sense to you that I contend this worked well during New Year’s Eve karaoke: Picture a dry, apathetic-sounding Todd (as if there’s any other kind) intoning:

And take your baby by the heel
And do the next thing that you feel
We were so in “phise”
In our dance hall “dize”
We were cool in “crize”…

And in her eyes two sapphires blue
And you need her and she needs you
And you need her
And she needs you

Now if I can just find a place with their best song, “To Live and Die in L.A.,” on the selections list.  I would also settle for the fantastic “Don’t Let Go.”
