"Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo

Before I was a blogger I was a pretty apathetic sort... Take this song as a for instance: I've been listening to it for more than 25 years now, and it wasn't until several minutes prior to writing this that I even gave a rat's ass who wrote it, who sang it, or what circumstances surrounded its creation. Say what you will about blogging, but it definitely has its plus side, especially when faced with a blank screen and a compulsion to write about pop culture.

Too Shy was recorded and released by Kajagoogoo in 1983 - in my humble opinion one of the greatest years in the history of British pop music; it was produced by Nick Rhodes (of Duran Duran fame) and that band's in-house producer Colin Thurston, responsible for Duran Duran's early
sound (as in their first single Planet Earth). The song appeared on the Kajagoogo's debut album, White Feathers; it's being sung by Limahl, who was born on this day in 1958.
