Biography

Modern Talking was a German pop music duo consisting of composer/producer/background singer Dieter Bohlen and singer Thomas Anders. It was the single most successful pop group in Germany (by sales).

First formed at the end of 1984 (Anders was 21), they unexpectedly became immensely popular with their standalone disco hit “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul”, which was then followed by “You Can Win If You Want” and “Cheri, Cheri Lady”. They released two albums a year from 1985 to 1987 while also promoting their singles on television all over Europe. After splitting up in 1987, the duo reunited in 1998, at first only testing the waters with new versions of hit singles and again reaching the top of the charts unexpectedly. Bohlen and Anders split again in 2003 due to irreconcilable disagreements (they had never been friends in the first place). Thomas Anders started another solo career immediately, while Bohlen had by now begun devoting most of his time to new talents, especially those he discovered on the German edition of the TV show Pop Idol/American Idol.

Global sales of Modern Talking records were 120 million units, according to BMG in June 2003, and they have become the biggest-selling German music act in history, so far outselling even Frank Farian’s projects Boney M and Milli Vanilli, Michael Cretu’s Enigma, Sandra, the Scorpions, Snap! and Rammstein.

    не понимаю некоторых нижеотписавшихся хейтеров. Не одно поколение людей отрывалось под их действительно ХИТОВЫЕ вещи. Не одно поколение людей выросло на их шедеврах - моя сестра 84-го года, я 93-го - оба до дыр закрутили какой-то пиратский сборник сего коллектива. Посему эта музыка у меня неотрывно связана с детством, ещё отец в уже далёкие для нас 90-е снимал на камеру родной город и вставлял некоторые их песни фоном. Какая ностальгия иногда накатывает...
