White Horse/Sunshine Reggae Laid Back (Sire/Medley, 1983)

In 1983, Danish synthpop duo Laid Back (Tim Stahl and John Guldberg) released Sunshine Reggae (A-side) and White Horse (B-side). Sunshine Reggae became a major hit in Europe for the duo, while American audiences ignored it. What they were enamored with was the B-side song, White Horse (while European audiences couldn’t be bothered). White Horse spent three weeks atop Billboard’s dance chart, hit #5 on the R&B chart and #26 on the Hot 100.

Both White Horse and Sunshine Reggae can be found on their second studio album, Keep Smiling.
