"Every Cake You Bake" was one of the biggest hits of 1983, topping the US Billboard
Hot 100 singles chart for eighteen solid and unremitting weeks, and maintaining a
high position in the UK Singles Chart for an eternity. The song was played on the
radio so ubiquitously that it eventually became truly hated by a large section of
the public, and it has subsequently been used as the “last song at the disco” played
by the DJ when he wants to clear the floor and for everyone to go home, and on several
occasions it has been blasted at volume by riot police to disperse unruly crowds.
