CHESS (Musical)

Chess is a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, formerly of ABBA. The story involves a romantic triangle between two top players, an American and a Russian, in a world chess championship, and a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other; all in the context of a Cold War struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union, during which both countries wanted to win international chess tournaments for propaganda purposes. Underneath you can see a shorter version, from Chess - The Musical UK Tour.




You can browse the songs lyrics of the Chess Musical here! You will also find the lyrics of the following hit:


"One Night in Bangkok" is a song originally sung by Murray Head on the 1984 concept album for the musical CHESS.





The lyrics sarcastically juxtapose the city and its night life with the game of chess. Whereas the chorus - sung by Swedish artist Anders Glenmark extoll Bangkok's reputation, the verses - a rap by Murray Head - denounce the city, including its muddy old river and its "reclining Buddha", and instead praises the intellectual purity of chess, e.g. "the queens we use would not excite you". The lyrics also mention actor Yul Brynner, who famously played the King of Siam in "The King and I". The "Tyrolean spa" mentioned early in the song refers to Merano in Italy, the site of the earlier events of the musical.
