You saved my soul in the dark of the night

One of the many eurodance acts which where quite big back in the days (the (mid) 90's) but have now more or less been forgotten by the general public is E-rotic. Yet again an act I'm sure I will be returning to as they did release some great tracks.

E-rotic being somewhat a forgotten gem themself I could give you one of the great songs that made me fall in love with them, like "Fred Come To Bed" or "Sex On The Phone". But besides the music still being great, the lyrics and corny moans really haven't aged that well, so instead I will give you one of my favorites of theirs:

"In The Dark Of The Night" was one of the new tracks taken from their best of album "Greatest Tits" from 1998. One of the few albums I've bought without really knowing most of the songs. But I knew enough and wasn't disappointed. "In The Dark Of The Night" was worth the entire album in it self, but there is a lot of other great stuff on it as well.

Heart of dance

I actually can't believe I haven't mentioned Maxx before! There's no doubt I will get back to them again as they are the ones behind such amazing songs as "No More (I Can't Stand It)" and "Get-A-Way"... Simply amazing!

But for now it's about the hidden gem that is "Heart Of Stone":

One of my favorites of theirs and a song I have had as my mobile ring tone for the past year and a half. And I still love it!

I can't believe it wasn't released as a single back in the days I'm sure it would have done better than some of their other singles.

I'm thinking of them

There's no underestimating the impact 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor had on the eurodance-scene in the 90's and their influence on my taste in music as well.

I've already covered their fantastic "Dreams (Will Come Alive)"
- one of my alltime favorites - and could mention a lot of their other songs which are also on my list of classics!

But for now it's about the more hidden gems and one of their tracks which have been somewhat forgotten and in my opinion is a bit underrated is "I'm Thinkin' Of U":

2 Brothers On The 4th Floor had the most succes with their singles from the first album "Dreams" and what came afterwards has mostly been hits in their homeland and a few other markets. In Denmark they have been mostly invisible since the first album which is probably why it's only within the last five years I've come to know "I'm Thinkin' Of U". But I love it that's for sure!
