Modern Talking

Modern Talking was a German pop duo consisting of arranger, songwriter and producer Dieter Bohlen and singer Thomas Anders. They have been referred to as Germany’s most successful pop duo, and have had a number of hit singles, reaching the top five in many countries. Their most popular singles are “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul”, “You Can Win If You Want”, “Cheri, Cheri Lady”, “Brother Louie”, “Atlantis Is Calling (S.O.S. for Love)” and “Geronimo’s Cadillac”. Modern Talking worked together from 1983 to 1987, when the band disbanded. They made a successful comeback, recording and releasing music from 1998 to 2003. The duo released singles (many of which involved American rapper Eric Singleton) which again entered the top ten in Germany and elsewhere, one of which was a re-recorded version of “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul”, to whose title “’98” was added. By the duo’s final break-up in 2003, their combined global sales (singles and albums) had reached 120 million.
