This ode to love was written by the British songwriters Steve Mac and Karen Poole and originally recorded by the all-female German Pop group No Angels for their 2007 Destiny album. Released as the album's third single as a double A-single along with a cover of Womack & Womack's "Teardrops," it peaked at #25 on the German Singles Chart. Union J re-recorded it for their debut self-titled album, putting their own twist on it.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
