Trivia: Wall of Voodoo

  • Black Sheep Hit: When line up #1 recorded "Mexican Radio", they had no idea that song would be that successful.
  • David Letterman: Yep, they played on the show as well.
  • One-Hit Wonder: "Mexican Radio" actually missed the US Top 40, peaking at #58 — which was, coincidentally, exactly the same peak it achieved in the UK. Nonetheless, it remains the band's best-known song, the one most frequently covered by other artists, and their only major chart appearance in their native U.S. The Prieboy-led "Far Side of Crazy" did quite well in Australia.
