She's the one in french

Sometimes it's hard to figure what makes a hit but for Kate Ryan it seems singing in French is the magic formula.

She exploded onto the scene in 2002 with the smash hit "Désenchantée" which became a big hit all over Europe.

And though she have released songs in English both before and after "Désenchantée" they've never given her quite the same succes. Even though they are often just as good. Here's one of my English favorites from her "Only If I":

Her latest is again a song in French. "Ella Elle L'a" which is good on it's way to become as big as "Désenchantée" haven so far gone top 10 in Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway and Lithuania.

Keep 'em coming Kate. Both in French and English.

I love the 90's too!

I just have to mention the new cooperation between Dr. Alban and Haddaway. Two of the biggest names from the 90's eurodance-scene have joined forces and are out with a brand new track Dr. Alban vs. Haddaway "I Love The 90's".

At first you might think both the sound and lyrics are a bit cheesy, but after some listens it is now one of my absolute favorites at the moment! It really deserves that one of the major radiostations or dj's picked it up and gave it a wider audience than all the blog's and music forum's which have welcomed it with enthusiasm!

Not forever

Last instalment for now in the little "where did they go?"-series goes to Sweden and Double N. The duo first caught my attention with the great "Forever And A Day" featuring Maria Rubia (of Fragma fame) on vocals.

The song became quite a hit in Denmark where it was featured as one of many theme-songs of that seasons Big Brother TV-show.

Around the same time they also released the less succesful but stil good "Moon Child".

After which they disappeared... Which is not completely true... They actually did a song called "The Ride" for the movie "Lilja 4-Ever" also released as a single and have now settled as producers under the alias 2N Productions. Producing for such names as Kate Ryan and BWO among others.
