Their signature song, “Disco Inferno”, has been covered by Tina Turner and Cyndi Lauper. In addition, Graham Parker covered “Hold Back The Night” on the “The Pink Parker EP” in 1977, and reached #20 in the UK Singles Chart, and Top 60 in the US.
On September 19, 2005, the group’s “Disco Inferno” was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame at a ceremony held in New York. The song was part-written by Ron Kersey, a producer-arranger and a member of MFSB, who also played with Trammps in the 1970s for a time. During the ceremony, the original band members performed together for the first time in 25 years.
The song Mad World was written and originally recorded by English duo Tears for Fears (Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith) in 1982, produced by Chris Hughes, a former drummer with Adam And The Ants and was released in 1983 on their debut album, The Hurting.
Several covers of this song have been released, with the one by Gary Jules probably being the most popular. There are other covers worth mentioning; here I list some of them: which one is your favorite?
