Best Wang Chung song from 'To Live and Die in LA'? It's not the title track

Everyone loves the tune To Live and Die in LA from the 1985 film of the same name. And it's a classic. But give me a choice, and I prefer the song over the closing credits, Wait, also by Wang Chung.

In fact, pick any song of their excellent 1984 album Points on the Curve, and you won't go wrong. Sure, Dance Hall Days was the chart-climber, but Wait, True Love, Don't Let Go and Don't Be My Enemy are all equally dazzling.

Wang Chung is one of the bands on this year's Regeneration Tour, so please go out of your way to catch them live in this series of rare live appearances. (I'll be at the Chicago show on June 26.) In the meantime, lead singer Jack Hues is our guest next week on the Stuck in the '80s podcast. So if you have any questions for Jack, drop me a comment or e-mail.
