Walk Like an Egyptian…

Top of the charts, 30 years ago this week, 1987.
“Walk Like an Egyptian” made famous by the American band the Bangles was released in 1986 as the third single from the album Different Light. It was a million-selling single and became Billboard’s number-one song of 1987. The song also served as the end theme of the anime adaptation JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure during the first half of the show’s Stardust Crusaders arc.

It’s also said that music producer Liam Sternberg wrote the song after seeing people on a ferry walking awkwardly to keep their balance, which reminded him of figures in some Ancient Egyptian paintings and reliefs.
