This German-based pop/dance act, comprising American vocalists Lane McCray Jnr. and Melanie Thornton (1967, USA, d. 24 November 2001, Switzerland), achieved instant success when their debut single, Sweet Dreams, became a European bestseller and topped the German charts, selling over half a million copies in the process.

The duo then broached the American market with the number 6 single Be My Lover, followed by further hits with Sweet Dreams and Fallin In Love.

Thornton subsequently launched a solo career, but in November 2001 she was tragically killed when the plane she was travelling on between Berlin and Zurich crashed in the woods close to Zurich...
