La Bouche ("Bouche" is French for "Mouth"), is the creation of the German producer Frank Farian, who is the same guy who brought us Boney M and Milli Vanilli. For La Bouche, he teamed the American singers Melanie Thornton and Lane McCray. "Be My Lover," with a very Eurodance sound, was their breakout hit in the US and also a worldwide hit, sweeping the charts all over Europe, the UK, and Australia, and hitting #1 in Germany and Sweden. Their previous European release was "Sweet Dreams," which also did very well around the world and was released as the second single in America after "Be My Lover" took off. The album went five times platinum and nine times gold in various countries.
