much better music video to watch

“Everybody Have Fun Tonight” is a song performed by the British new wave group Wang Chung, released as a single from their album Mosaic in 1986. Collaboratively written by Jack Hues, Nick Feldman, and Peter Wolf, it reached #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart on Christmas 1986 behind “Walk Like an Egyptian” by The Bangles. It also hit #1 on the Canada RPM Top 100 Singles chart the week of 17 January 1987. With some different lyrics, the original ballad version of the song was placed on the B-side.

After their breakup in 1991, Wang Chung reunited in 2005 to perform this song on the television show Hit Me, Baby, One More Time.

The song is featured on numerous 1980s compilation albums and still receives some radio airplay across the United States.

It has appeared in the “#2s” episode of VH1 Classic’s One Hit Wonders series, even though the band had one more top 10 single, “Let’s Go”, in April 1987
