      RIP Torsten Fenslau! He was part of the early 90's german dance scene, along with Sven Vath and DJ Dag... Most people stateside have no clue who he is, lol. Mr Vain, hehe

        I didnt actually hear this first at the time when I was buying all German imports my mother actually had the kitchen radio on I heard her shout through the window outside to me theres a song on the radio that you might like lol. ;)
        the comments about tracks like this are shit sometimes the shit songs are usually the best if you get me...

        For a dance track its produced rather well like 2 unlimited No Limit......I remember here in the UK they sold out of these CDs I remember clearly the gaps on the shelf' especially 2 unlimited No Limit I used to see people come in for a copy (when I was collecting my orders) id hear the staff say sorry we've have sold out try again next week 😂
        my girlfriend at the time wanted it and we had to travel on the bus to 3 HMV's to get a copy 😂😂
        dam I feel old.
        Culture Beat Mr Vain, 2 Unlimited No Limit, Felix Don't You Want Me I can still remember them stocking the shelves with these CD's 😵

          The first big hit from Culture Beat. Love this song. It's a shame that all the tracks on this is the same just with different arrangements. But this is the case for all of Culture Beat's singles from this album and the first

          Mr. Vain (Vain Mix) - Has a more DJ intro as it starts with the awesome bass line playing and then the kick comes followed by different percussion before the synth riff hits. My favorite version of the original song

          Mr. Vain (Decent Mix) - This version is more of a intro version. It starts with a pad playing, then a ride comes in followed by the riff played by a guitar and a tambourine. then it continue to build up with the bass, more percussion, kick and a repeating synth melody before the main synth riff comes in

          Mr. Vain (Special Radio Edit) - Just a radio edit of the song. Is is a little bit different from the version used in the music video. It starts with the main riff being played by a guitar sound instead of the main synth sound

          All of the versions also has a little bit of difference in the part that comes after the chorus and before the second verse

            This is just a fantastic Eurodance tune from 90s. Highly suggested.

              On the cover it says "thanks to Kenneth Bager". Bager came up with the idea for the synthesizer melody leading up to the 2nd chorus (begins at 1:05 in the radio edit).

                1 of the millions awesome songs from great 90´s sound

                  Second eurodance review I make in the same day... I knew all of these songs thanks to MTV, and this one was one of the most memorable, not because of the song itself - which is a simple fine dance song with rap and diva voice and pretty good synths and basslines - but because of the video, one that spreaded sexuality all over the tv without having a bit of sex, just people having fruit. My bet is that this song was that well-known because of that, because itself it is not much more than a slightly improved variation of 2Unlimited's "No Limit".

                      One of the best Eurodance Tracks Ever!
