BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“One Night in Bangkok” is a song originally sung by the British actor and singer Murray Head (verses) and Swedish singer and songwriter Anders Glenmark (choruses) on the 1984 concept album for the musical Chess. Its music was composed by former ABBA members Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and its lyrics were written by Tim Rice and Ulvaeus.

The release topped the charts in many countries, including South Africa, West Germany, Switzerland and Australia. It peaked at no. 3 in both Canada and the United States in May 1985, and at no. 12 in Head’s native United Kingdom.
