I don't like the intro, but other than that this song is great
***
It isn't superb, but I don't mind it.

lol i really hate this! so full of stereotypes it's just really odd that this was such a successful hit around the world.
*****
One of the weirder number ones in Australia pre 1988.

Spent one week there in March 1985.

Murray Head was not actually a one-hit-wonder (in Australia at least). His version of "Superstar" from the musical Jesus Christ Superstar was the first single released from the musical here in Australia, AND was the first NEW ENTRY of the 1970's, debuting January 5th, 1970, and hitting No.5 in late February.
So he is a two-hit-wonder in Australia.

The song was a hit around the world due to it's inclusion in the musical "Chess", which also had the hit single "I Know Him So Well" by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson (#21, May 1985) {Murray Head's 'One Night in Bangkok' was at No.40 [on it's way down the charts] the week 'I Know...' made peaked in the charts}
