Murray Head

Best remembered for his 1984 smash "One Night in Bangkok," actor/singer Murray Head was born March 5, 1946 in London and began his performing career at age 12 with appearances in a series of radio plays. He began writing songs a year later, cutting his earliest singles while still a teenager under the supervision of famed producer Norrie Paramor. In 1966 Head made his film debut in The Family Way; the picture also featured his third single "Some Day Soon," produced by Tim Rice. Still, Head's career failed to take off and he was eventually dropped from his recording contract, spending a few years selling insurance before Rice and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber contacted him to sing the role of Judas on the soundtrack to their musical Jesus Christ Superstar; concurrently, he also appeared in the film Sunday Bloody Sunday. The success of both projects launched Head to mainstream attention, and in 1972 he recorded his debut solo album Nigel Lived; three years later he resurfaced with Say It Ain't So, scoring an enduring cult hit with the single "Say It Ain't So, Joe." Apart from a starring role in 1977's Madame Claude, he spent the remainder of the decade out of the spotlight, finally returning in 1980 with Between Us; two more albums, Voices and How Many Ways, followed a year later. In 1984 Head was tapped to star in the musical Chess; his soundtrack performance of "One Night in Bangkok" was released as a single and became a major pop hit on both sides of the Atlantic, although his subsequent recordings were largely unheard outside of his core audience. ~ Jason Ankeny

I'm a chess player, and I enjoy the song One Night in Bangkok. The lyrics make reference to chess history.

Very little of this era's music is worth replaying or even remembering - but this is not one of those dull, niche filler-songs .

This had life and vitality to it. I'd have liked to see the play I'd even settle for a decent video that isn't a hijack of some groupies bogus recording.

I've got Murray Head as a Pandora Station, but only for One Night, as much of the other stuff on that channel is pretty mindless synthesized and wasted electrons.

Chess is possibly my favorite musicals. And I mean the original London version, NOT the travesty they turned it into when it came to Broadway!

ABBA deserves the credit for this. Murray Head was no more than a voice.

This song was written by Bjorn and Benny from ABBA. If you listen to the tune, it's very similar to Gimme, gimme, gimme

Murray, there's too much heaven on their minds, right? You are too much, man! You are fantastic! I think head should star in donovan's brain: the musical! Dr Stein has spoken. Do you think I'm a clown, netta? I have a craving for string cheese now, excuse me.
