From Now That's What I Call Music! 4 (disc 2)

Malcolm McLaren turned his eyes to electronic music and opera in the 1984 single, Madame Butterfly, based on the opera. The track is arranged with drum machines, atmospheric synthesizers and spoken verses. It was an unlikely hit, reaching #13 in the UK and #16 in Australia. The producer of the single, Stephen Hague, became a much sought after producer in the techno pop genre following his work with McLaren on the following full length LP ‘Fans’.
