Kajagoogoo topped the UK and German charts in 1983 with "Too Shy" ( and climbed all the way to #5 in the US) and were on their way to more UK chart success when bassist Nick Beggs provided Smash Hits with this easy listening list that gives nods to both Elton John and Christopher Cross (!). By the way, Beggs is right. In the UK Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey" stalled at #58 even though it topped the Mainstream Rock chart in the US. This list comes courtesy of Brian at Like Punk Never Happened.
