Kajagoogoo’s Chart-Topper “Too Shy” Is Classic ’80s Pop

Kajagoogoo released the hit track “Too Shy” in 1983, and within no time, it skyrocketed to the top of the UK Singles charts. It was almost as popular in the US, climbing just as quickly to number five on the Hot 100.

British new wave rockers Kajagoogoo reached all-new audiences with the release of their hit single “Too Shy.” It’s one of the greatest one-hit-wonders of the eighties and a song that charted across the world thanks to its addictive, synth-sound.

“Too Shy” was written and performed by the band Kajagoogoo but was produced by Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes and Colin Thurston. The band paved the way for many newcomers to US shores.

UK artists at the time were producing numerous videos, and MTV just didn’t have enough content. This unforgettable track set the tone for quirky, British artists and their music videos during the eighties.
