Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Murray Head “One Night In Bangkok”

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

Last week, while we were strolling through some video masterpieces from the 1980s (perhaps our favorite decade for pop music, if only because it saved us from disco), we were reminded of this memorable performance from 1985. The song is from the 1984 concept album and the musical Chess, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (ABBA) and lyrics by Tim Rice (Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar).

The song is performed by British actor/musician Murray Head.
