Happy 25th Birthday "Too Shy."

"Too Shy" was released as the first single from Kajagoogoo's debut album White Feathers. The song was an immediate hit in the UK, spending two weeks at number one. Assisted by heavy rotation on MTV, the song later became a success in the United States, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. "Too Shy" was Kajagoogoo's only significant hit in the U.S., but the band had other songs chart in the UK including "Ooh to Be Aah," and "Hang on Now."

"Too Shy" was produced by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran, and Colin Thurston, who had produced Duran Duran's first two albums. In 2006, "Too Shy" was ranked #27 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s.

The five piece Kajagoogoo (Nick Beggs on bass, Steve Askew on lead guitar, Stuart Croxford Neale on keyboards, Jez Strode on drum, and Limahl on vocals) became a four piece when at the end of 1983, Limahl and the band parted company "on the eve of a highly publicised USA tour."

After Limahl's departure, Beggs took over singing duties and the band released Islands, which went to #35 in the UK. The four piece then became a three piece in 1985 with the departure of Strode, and in 1986, the remaining members went their separate ways.

In 2003, "VH-1 engineered a seemingly impossible task, persuading Kajagoogoo to reform the original 5-piece band for a one off television special. The resulting performance was part of the VH-1 'Bands Reunited' series."

This month, Kajagoogoo announced plans to reunite the original members, and said they would play Retrofest in August 2008.
