80s Hi-NRG

For no reason whatsoever here is a look back at one of  the hits from the 80s. This was a time when there was a real genre called Hi-NRG.

The song is so submerged in pop culture that even if you have never heard it before you will still feel like you have. It’s one of those songs. So popular that its chorus or hum or breaks have been sampled by so many other artists.

Kim Wilde – Cambodia. The video is rather lame; you are far better off imagining a scene to it in your mind. For some reason I think of myself swinging through trees like ol’ Tarzan as I’m being pursued by spies in baggy suits — but I picture that at many occasions. If you like this song, you will also like her version of You Keep Me Hangin’ On — her biggest hit but was originally sung by The Supremes.
