Genre-wise they were often classified under Europop. Modern Talking, who by sales are the most successful and popular group in Germany, have had number of hit singles reaching the top-5 in many countries. Some of their most popular and widely known 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“.
Their materials have been released over a period of two separate time tables, first between 1984-1987, then the duo found itself reunified in 1998 and made a successful comeback releasing another batch of materials between 1998-2003. Modern Talking’s sound; however, was rather different from its original 80s sound after its reunion. The duo came back in 1998 recording their materials based on what the demand was in central European music markets at the time in late 90s, which required their original 80s mellow Europop sound to switch into 90s uptempo Eurodance.
The duo managed to release singles which again entered the top-10 not only at their home but also abroad, some of those singles were “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul ’98”, “Brother Louie ’98”, and “You Are Not Alone”.
First formed at the end of 1984, they unexpectedly became immensely popular with their eurodisco hit single “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul” with which they occupied the number one position in 35 countries including their homeland where the single perched at the top for six consecutive weeks, the single eventually went on to sell eight million copies world-wide. The track was then followed by another number one hit “You Can Win If You Want” which was released in the middle of 1985 from the debut album The First Album. The album went on being certified platinum in Germany for selling over 500,000 units.
