Anglo For Your Ear: Nik Kershaw’s “The Riddle”
Nik Kershaw‘s 1984 track “The Riddle” is the sort of catchy, reggae-inflected pop song that should have guaranteed him American radio play. And the colorful, quirky video? Totally perfect for MTV. Oddly, the song never charted in America, despite being a huge hit everywhere else. Robbie Williams can relate.
