This 1986 pop hit started the catchphrase “Everybody Wang Chung tonight” What does it mean ? Maybe nothing.
However “Huang Chung” is Chinese for “Yellow Bell,” and refers to what the Buddhists believed was the perfect pitch for music, and a manifestation of the divine.
Nick Feldman,one half of the duo Wang Chung, describes the phrase as a feeling, not a word. It represents an abstract, an escape from pragmatic, complex ideas. As he says “Wang Chung means whatever you want it to mean. Have fun with it. That’s the whole idea of the line ‘Everybody Wang Chung Tonight.’
