Back in the 80’ies one man sat ontop of pops. The king on the throne was Dieter Bohlen. He grew up in a suburb of Oldenburg, Niedersachsen. He started his musical carreer as Steve Benson, coining the song Don’t Throw My Love Away, which was follwed by two other singles. None of them reached the top 100, and Bohlen decided to stop the Steve Benson project. Around 1983 he met singer Thomas Anders, and it was soon obvious that the two had struck gold, creatively. They formed Modern Talking and they would dominate pop culture in Europe for a decade. Today especially the vocals seem forced and cheesey, but trust me: They were pure gold back then.
Today’s share is something of a rarity. An instrumental version of their huge hit, Brother Louie, from 1986. Golden!
