Modern Talking biography

The Modern Talking project originated in the spring of 1984, when Dieter Bohlen wrote You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul. At first he could not find a suitable artist to complete the act. Persuaded by Bohlen, the German pop singer Thomas Anders recorded the You're My Heart, You’re My Soul - unaware of the impact it would have on the music industry. A few weeks after its debut, You’re my heart, You’re My Soul reached the top of the German pop charts. Sales exceeded 40000 singles daily. After their incredible success in Germany, Modern Talking released their hit in other European and Asian countries. They landed on charts in 17 countries, including Japan’s top 20, being the first German act ever to enter this chart. The single was # 1 in Israel and nominated song of the year 1985 in this country, but only # 55 in in UK. They were elected band of the years 1985 and 1986 in Israel.

A few months later, they followed up with their 2nd huge hit (You Can Win If You Want) which confirmed the success of the 1st single being # 1 in Israel once again. Cheri Cheri Lady (# 1 in Israel) and Brother Louie (# 1 in Israel, # 4 in UK) became further chart toppers. What made this group popular  was the fact that Dieter knew what people wanted, namely, emotional, easy to listen dance songs. His music combined with an angelic voice of Thomas produced a fail-free recipe.

After Brother Louie scored gold in Canada and England, Modern Talking seemed to have the US market wide open to them. But quarrels between Dieter Bohlen and Thomas Anders (now) ex-wife led to the band's split in 1987, after hits such as Atlantis Calling, (which was # 1 in Israel, # 52 in UK), Geronimo's Cadillac (# 2 in Israel), 7 albums and over 60 million albums sold. Dieter concentrated on his new project Blue System and Thomas went solo.

Modern Talking is considered as the most successful german band ever and with 60 million albums sold in the top ten world wide. Only mega stars like Elton John, Elvis, the Rolling Stones or the Beatles outrank Modern Talking internationally.

Anders' solo career in the US, was not a real success, in spite of five albums released. In March 1998 the impossible happened : Dieter Bohlen and Thomas Anders reunited as Modern Talking after only superficial contact for four years. Personal differences have been set aside so that the huge phenomenon that captivated many people a decade ago, could be reborn once again. Their first performance was in front of an 18 million TV audience on the game show 'Wetten dass...?'. The updated You're My Heart, You're My Soul '98 was released. It featured raps by Eric Singleton. Sales soared like in the mid 80s and it went straight to number 1 in many countries (such as Israel). The remix album Back For Good was a huge success achieving platinum status almost instantaneously. The duo’s next singles entered the charts on high positon and so did the 8th album Alone.

In Janurary 2000 the Single China in her eyes was released and went directly on slot eight in the german single charts. In the end of Februrary the 9th album 2000 - Year Of The Dragon comes same time like the chinese horoscope year of the dragon begins.

2001 : the single Win The Race was released. On the maxi-CD, one can find another song named Cinderella Girl. The new album, entitled America is planned for 19th of March.

2002 : they released a new single called Juliet, with the clubbing Disco Feeling as B-side, along with a video clip. A best of album called Romantic Dreams was also released.

2003 : Modern Talking released a new single entitled TV Makes A Superstar, which already peaked #2 in Germany. Then followed the 12th album, entitled Universe. In June they planned some concerts in Germany... but they split for the second time. Thomas Anders said that Dieter was unhappy with "having to share money and success" with him. In his second book Hinter den Kulissen (Behind The Curtains), Dieter Bohlen called Thomas Anders greedy, lazy, and scrupulous and claimed that Thomas Anders "ruined" all of the Modern Talking songs with his "untrained" voice.
