The Bangles Information Continued
The Bangles' debut album, All Over The Place (1984) captured their power-pop roots, and attracted the attention of Prince, who wrote "Manic Monday" for the group. "Manic Monday" went on to become a US #2 hit, outsold at the time only by another Prince composition, his very own "Kiss". The accompanying album Different Light (1986) was more polished than its predecessor and, with the help of the worldwide #1 hit "Walk like an Egyptian", saw the band firmly in the mainstream.
1988's Everything was another multi-platinum smash, and included their biggest selling single in the soft ballad "Eternal Flame".
On December 31, 2005, they reunited to play their hit Hazy Shade of Winter in front of Times Square and later played Eternal Flame as part of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2006.
