Subject: Living in A Box

Written By: whistledog on 12/13/05 at 6:46 pm

Anyone remember the British trio Living in A Box?

In America, they were the only artist of the 80's to reach the top 40 with a self-titled song that also came from a self-titled album (In the UK, Visage had done this previously in 1981).  "Living in A Box" became a top 40 hit in 1987 and remained the group's only major success in America, even though they had one other minor hit on Billboard with the Bobby Womack duet "So the Story Goes"

In the UK, they did quite well.  Their self-titled 1987 album and the 1989 follow-up "Gatecrashing" each produced three UK top 40 hits:

I do like Living in a Box (the song)... I can't say that I remember any other titles from them... :)
