Murray Head was the original Judas Iscariot in Andrew Lloyd Webber Jesus Christ Superstar.
Anthony de Fex
The Navy should always play this song every time they pull into a Far East port, as many squids reason with their smaller of their 2 brains

Of all the songs about chess tournaments in Thailand that have flute solos, this is easily in the top 5
Barry Bethal

Best time for music no doubt about it, glad I grew up 70's & 80's with this music.

God I miss the 80's
Craig Jackson
As young teenager in the 80s watching my beloved days of MTV, VH1, I enjoyed this song and video. I thought to myself, I am eventually going to go to Bangkok. I did as an adult. Phuket, Chang Mai, Chang Rai and Bangkok to be exact.

Yeah, the one night in bangkok, i can remember, wasnt pretty it was 1968 or maybe 69, all i know is my tongue felt like it needed a shave the next morning.

EXCELENT SOUND
Just Me
In 1984 I had no idea what kind of lesson this song was teaching us...in 2016 I went to Bangkok and finally understood this song (I can attest that this song is accurate even today), LOL.....Bangkok is CRAZY...exciting...and strange....kinda like MTV in the 80's!  I love my era that I grew up in!
Kevin Pennell
Do you ever fantasize about walking into a room and have this start playing?
KylowOhYeahYeah
Always wanted to visit Thailand.

This is my generic comment about how the 80s was great and today sucks
Lisa Jessick
They are like Solid Gold dancers on the chessboard, ❤it! Music back then had originality, passion and authenticity. I sure do miss that.

How can you beat the 80s so funky so strange and weird need that in our time now , it created my life and I’ll never forget the 80s shame I can’t say that now .
Maryan Mary
Music '80 the best ever 👍👍👍 now 👎👎👎👎
Matthew Cahill
Is this song about Ladyboys?
Matthew Hibbard
This reminds me a lot of “Puttin on the Ritz” by Taco

For those who don't know, it's from the musical Chess which is about an American and a Russian in an international chess tournament. The Murray Head character is the American who is snobby and condescending about the tournament's location; hence, the lyrics.

Why do I always snort coke when I listen to 80’s music?
Mills J
I have trust issues with women in bangkok.. they arel transformers

MTV was made for this not the crap they play today

The American\nBangkok, Oriental Setting\nBut the city don't know what the city is getting\nThe crème de la crème of the chess world\nIn a show with everything but Yul Brynner\n\nTime flies – doesn't seem a minute\nSince the Tyrolean spa had the chess boards in it\nAll changed, don't you know that when you\nPlay at this level there's no ordinary venue\n\nIt's Iceland, or the Philippines, or Hastings\nOr \nOr this place!\n\nCompany\nOne night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster\nThe bars are temples but their pearls ain't free\nYou'll find a god in every golden cloister\nAnd if you're lucky, then the god's a she\nI can feel an angel slidin' up to me\n\nThe American\nOne town's very like another\nWhen your head's down over your pieces, brother\n\nCompany\nIt's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity\nTo be looking at the board not looking at the city\n\nThe American\nWhattaya mean?!\nYou've seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town\n\nCompany\nTea Girls, warm and sweet ---warm sweet.\nSome are set up \nIn the Somerset Maugham suite\n\nThe American\nGet Thai'd, you're talking to a tourist\nWhose every move's among the purest:\n\

As this song is about chess, shouldn't it be \

I was so fascinated by this song as a kid. Even back then it was unique.
RAFAEL CANELA
Great song; would want to see the play in a theater
Rabid Cougar
The late 70's and into the 80's brought legitimate dance back into music...........
Randy Thunder Audio
Where did we go wrong when MTV changed to the crap that it is today????? Still ROKN this in 2018
Reviews.
WOW. I remember as a kid I had such a crush on that hot Asian woman. I’m 45 now. The 80’s were the best times.
Robert Cook
It is about the NWO and human sacrifice and cannibalism. Listen to the words better. The chess they are talking about is the control of the world. We are the little people the song is mocking. Listen close. It is NOT about a chess event. That is misdirection origin story crap.
Robert Sanko
How many people know what he means by “the queens we use would not excite you”. So hilariously gay! 🤡
Ruslan Cowley
This song is simply fantastic I love it so much

The 80's. Best time ever
Seeking A Great Perhaps
One of the strangest and most unexpected pop songs of the 1980s. Everyone was like, WTF, and then everyone loved it and no one could understand what the hell was going on.

Watching here in July 2018 ❤️ the 80s!
barbara chipley
the flute is awesome. sounds like Jethro toll.
bradleysstuff
The song is about this guy rejecting the city's culture for the sake of his chess game. He's way more interested in chess than everything the city has to offer.
diamond dave
This is definitely one of the best songs in the history of music!!!! 😊✌💎
dtiydr
Fun fact: ABBA made this song.\n\nAnother fact: Bangkok banned this from being played there for many years, I wonder why. Maybe they thought ppl got the wrong impression about them.. it should actually have been the right impression.

Bangkok, Oriental setting\nAnd the city don't know that the city is getting\nThe creme de la creme of the chess world \nIn a show with everything but Yul Brynner\nTime flies doesn't seem a minute\nSince the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it\nAll change don't you know that when you\nPlay at this level there's no ordinary venue\nIt's Iceland or the Philippines or Hastings or\nOr this place!\nOne night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster\nThe bars are temples but the pearls ain't free\nYou'll find a god in every golden cloister\nAnd if you're lucky then the god's a she\nI can feel an angel sliding up to me\nOne town's very like another\nWhen your head's down over your pieces, brother\nIt's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity\nTo be looking at the board, not looking at the city\nWhaddya mean?\nYa seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town\nTea, girls, warm, sweet\nSome are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite\nGet thai'd, you're talking to a tourist\nWhose every move's among the purest\nI get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine\nOne night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble\nNot much between despair and ecstasy\nOne night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble\nCan't be too careful with your company\nI can feel the devil walking next to me\nSiam's gonna be the witness\nTo the ultimate test of cerebral fitness\nThis grips me more than would a\nMuddy old river or reclining Buddha\nAnd thank God I'm only watching the game controlling it\nI don't see you guys rating\nThe kind of mate I'm contemplating\nI'd let you watch, I would invite you\nBut the queens we use would not excite you\nSo you better go back to your bars, your temples\nYour massage parlours\nOne night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster\nThe bars are temples but the pearls ain't free\nYou'll find a god in every golden cloister\nA little flesh, a little history\nI can feel an angel sliding up to me\nOne night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble\nNot much between despair and ecstasy\nOne night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble\nCan't be too careful with your company\nI can feel the devil walking next to me

This is from the musical Chess that Björn and Benny from ABBA wrote, and – like everything they touch – it was a huge success. It would.
