    Siedzieć po 23 na poduszce w egipskiej knajpce pod gołym niebem, palić fajkę wodną i słyszeć tą piosenkę, wokół ruch - największy o tej godzinie, kolorowe światła, neony, sprzedawcy zachęcający do zakupów w ich sklepach, egipski ryneczek, wypoczynek przy basenie :(((( tęsknie..

    The Backstreet Boys weren't born when this came out.

    "sounding like backstreet boys much?" No, but as this came first the Backstreet Boys would sound like this, not the other way around.

    sounding like backstreet boys much?

    The song tells of the meeting of 2 great chess players, one Soviet and one American, in Bangkok, which is the capital of Thailand. Chess is a musical production that uses a US-USSR chess rivalry as a metaphor for the Cold War, but this song just contains double-entendres about the game of Chess compared to the Bangkok nightlife. The example often used is "I would invite you, but the queens we use would not excite you." http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=5490
