China (extended) - Huang Chung (Wang Chung)

Huang Chung (Wang Chung) are a British New Wave band.

The band's first album was issued in 1982. The self-titled album compiled three non-charting Arista A-sides & one B-side, with six other new tracks.
Like the singles, the Huang Chung album failed to chart (China is included here from this first album)

The group found their greatest success in the US with five Top 40 hits all charting between 1984 and 1987 (including the #2 hit "Everybody Have Fun Tonight").

In the UK, their home country, their only top 40 hit was "Dance Hall Days" (#21, 1984).

Voyeur (12" version) - Kim Carnes

is a 1982 single release
from Kim Carnes's album Voyeur.

The single reached #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and #52 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts.

The song also achieved some international chart success too but failed to live up to record company expectations, particularly after the phenomenal success of "Bette Davis Eyes" a year earlier.

In 1983, Carnes was nominated for a Best Pop Rock Performance (Female) Grammy Award for "Voyeur".

The video clip for "Voyeur" was directed by Russell Mulcahy who also directed the videos for "Bette Davis Eyes" and "Draw of the Cards"; he was also responsible for many of Duran Duran's videos that defined the early years of MTV.
