Let’s Go Play Rockers’ Block With Nick Feldman of Wang Chung

Watch the singer/bassist for the '80s New Wave act kill it in this game of "Name That Tune," but with his own songs



Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too garbage-y to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog each song from the beginning to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.

Wang Chung enjoyed a helluva run in the ’80s, what with their impossible-to-avoid pop hits, chiefly “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” and “Dance Hall Days.” Though they haven’t been able to recreate that fledgling success (few have) since, they’re still doing it on the touring circuit and, albeit quietly, still making records.

BlastEcho caught up with one-half of Wang Chung, bassist/singer Nick Feldman, at Ravinia in Highland Park, IL, when the band was touring alongside other ’80s acts like A Flock of Seagulls, Animotion and Trans-X, among them, on the Lost ’80s Live tour.

Feldman was nice enough to indulge in a game of Rockers’ Block and he was mean enough to kick its ass!
