Everybody Wang Chung Tonight

So I went bowling with my parents and siblings a couple of weeks ago.  It was one of those alleys with big screens playing music videos above the pins.  Apparently the theme that night was 80s.  Despite that era being “before our time” but also “after their time”, I think everyone enjoyed the music.  One song which I had not been familiar with, but which my siblings and I got a kick out of, was “Everybody Have Fun Tonight”.  The song is catchy, but to me what made it stand out was the refrain “Everybody have fun tonight, everybody wang chung tonight.”  Huh??  I didn’t get it but I loved the randomness.  So it turns out the band is called Wang Chung, so it isn’t as random as I thought.  But I still love it.  Weirdly working your own band name into a song?  Why not!  I now consider this song to be right up there with Huey Lewis’ “The Power of Love” from Back to the Future.
