Modern Talking

Profile:
Modern Talking, consisting of producer / songwriter Dieter Bohlen and vocalist Thomas Anders, was formed in 1984 in Berlin by Hansa label. The studio line-up also included Luis Rodriguez, Ralf Stemmann, Rolf Köhler, Michael Scholz, Detlef Wiedeke and Birger Corleis.
Their debut single "You're My Heart, You're My Soul" reached the top of the German pop charts and was No.1 for 6 weeks. They landed on top of the charts in 17 countries, including Japan’s top 15, being the first German act ever to enter Japanese chart. The single was also No.1 in Israel and Turkey, No.2 in South Africa, No.56 in the UK.
After 6 albums around summer of 1987, Thomas Anders & Dieter Bohlen went separate ways. In 1998 they reunited for a new album "Back For Good" and released 5 more studio albums until they split for good in 21/6/2003 (date of last concert after earlier announcment by Dieter Bohlen on 7/6/2003 during concert in Rostov). Modern Talking is considered as the most successful German band ever with over 120 million albums sold in the top 30 worldwide.

How does the album version of "You're My Heart, You're My Soul" differ from the Extended Version of the song? They sound identical to me. Also, has the original 7" version of the song been remastered and included on a CD?

EVERY russian household had MT's records back in 1986/88. Slightly altered versions of their 2nd and 3rd album were released by state-running Melodiya label. That was giant leap of Glasnost and Perestroika that the modern western pop come to communist state. Millions were pressed, because everybody wanted to buy those records. I presume that no less than 50.000.000 of their albums were sold in USSR alone.

I had the opportunity of purchasing my first 7" at the time these guys released "You can win if you want". They were my favourite group at a stage. They were also featured on a lot of South African compilation releases, proving just how obviously popular they were. Years had gone by and the "Back For Good" album set the stage for other artists like CC Catch, Fancy & others to rehash their work. As a DJ playing to audiences with patrons having varied preferences, they have been the most popular with their hits remixed. Even with Dieter Bohlen's work under the guise of Blue System, their popularity was in one word still HUGE!
