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

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.

Talk about a fun song! Such a unique vibe .. \nListen to Two Words by Retrofile ... has this sorta heavy bass/drum groove vibe ... under appreciated group IMO
Donnie Freymoyer

First half of the song's music always reminded more of music from the middle east or maybe India, rather the far east.
Gina Matheny
When MTV was about music!
Gretchen Bily
Holy shit, I never realized that this song is actually about playing chess.

It's tradition for me to listen to this song before a game of Chess.

The 70's and 80's and early 90's were the Golden years of music and different genre's of music change. An era that we have been blessed with to enjoy ! Music with understandable lyrics and meanings with great beats and Groups.
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.

One night in bankok makes a hard man humble
Martin Grant
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 .
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.
Michael Angelo
One night with Thai sticks.

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.
Rabid Cougar
The late 70's and into the 80's brought legitimate dance back into music...........
Raerostron44 Raerae
all I know is it gets my day started I enjoy living back to the 80s it was my time primetime
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.

I also get my kicks above the waistline, Sunshine and I am semi-oriental, Could listen to this all day and night in my climbing Buddha British country that isn't my ancestral home.
Sledge Basement
Is this song about the Lady Boys of Bangkok?
Solarchos
Say what you want about the 1980s, the music was fantastic.
Stephen Krcelich
The 80s was the best time to live. Big hair pretty girls. Not many laws good music
Stephen Parallox
Who is still rocking to this in 2347! Whoohoo!

The 80’s had the best fuckn music that exited
Terry Stokes
Uhh😍
Todd Larson
This is so '80s, combining the best elements of punk, rap, techno and new wave into one of the quintessential dance ditties of the decade. Andersson, Ulvaeus and Rice really transitioned well from the mellifluous mellow of the age of ABBA to the hard edge of the eighties. Thanks for posting!
Tyson Giesbrecht
I'll take any of these songs over the cookie 🍪 cutter crap

Watching here in July 2018 ❤️ the 80s!
barbara chipley
the flute is awesome. sounds like Jethro toll.
biggbusta
y'all realize he's rapping, right?😂😂😂
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.
candypebbles123
every radio station in the world should play this every 15 mins

The only thing anyone will ever remember about \

This is definitely one of the best songs in the history of music!!!! 😊✌💎

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.

Yes,80s...good,very\n good

Thailand, once called Siam, is known for many things. Not least among them: lady-boys. Legend goes, the prettiest Thai girls are all transvestites. Hence the line:\n\
