This is the first ever Trance music song to reach #1 in the UK.
ATB is Andre Tanneberger, a German musician, DJ and dance music producer. Tanneberger was showing a girlfriend round his new studio at his home in Germany when he started showing off his instruments to her. He got carried away by a guitar sound he was creating on his new producing deck, forgot about his girlfriend and 3 hours later at 9pm decided to save the track he'd created. He thought that as it was 9pm he'd save it under that name. A few days later, when he was finishing the track, Andre used some whispering vocals lifted from a TV appearance from Spanish model Yolanda Riviera, where she says, "Till I come, 9pm (Till I Come)," hence the title 9pm (Till I Come).
ATB had 2 more UK Top Ten hits: "Don't Stop," with vocals by Yolanda Rivera, and a cover of Adamski's "Killer." Tanneberger continued to release singles in his native Germany and other parts of Europe. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)

Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"
Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
