BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“Wait” is a single by Wang Chung, released as the fourth and final single from their 1984 album, Points on the Curve. The single reached #87 on the UK Singles Chart. Aside from the early singles released as Huang Chung, “Wait” was the only single by Wang Chung that failed to chart on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Wait is also the only Wang Chung song to appear on two different non-compilation albums. Wait originally appeared on Points on the Curve, but was used again in the To Live and Die in L.A. soundtrack when director William Friedkin liked the song so much, he wanted to incorporate it into his 1985 thriller, To Live and Die in L.A. “Wait” appears during the end credits of the film.

No music video was shot for “Wait”.

    Ahhh, Wang Chung. Other than DHD, I think the rest of the POTC singles only had one official remix, which is a shame. Not sure if you collect 7″ singles, but WC put out ‘Wait’ in a double 7″ gatefold that includes this awesome Thomas Dolby-esque track called ‘Hard Times’, plus a live version of DHD. Very hard to find.

    WC really needs to put out a rarities/live/B-side/remixes comp. Lots of misc Wang/Huang Chung tracks out there!

    Hi TDOL I never really collected that many 7″ singles but I will keep a look out for that one 🙂

    So speedy to get back to the BTG groove, Paul. I salute you!
    Always love Wang Chung remixes, and so good to have the other versions of Dance Hall Days! Thanks Paul.
    btw, Dance Hall Days is inspired by the book Lolita, and the song charts the degeneration from innocence to degradation.

    Thanks Ric! I appreciate your insight into the track info 🙂

    Without having downloaded it, I’m guessing that this is the same “Wait” remix as the B-side to the US 12″ of “Don’t Be My Enemy,” which has an extended dance remix of DBME (8:58) on side A and an extended dance remix of Wait that clocks in at 8:18.

    If you ever come across it, I heartily recommend the “Dance Hall Days” U.S. 12″ put out in 1997 by Geffen, featuring four very trance/electronica remixes of a remake that must have been done for a Greatest Hits compilation. The first on the B-side, “Dance Hall Days” (Richie Warburton Remix) is one of the most radical and thoroughly awesome remixes of pretty much anything I’ve ever heard.
