来自柏林的Modern Talking成立于1983年，团员包括作曲者兼制作人Dieter Bohlen以及当时堪称《少女杀手》的俊美主唱Thomas Anders两人，是欧洲着名的舞曲组合，许多歌曲脍炙人口，成为80年代中期欧陆舞曲乐坛的唯一代名词。翻唱成中文的一曲“路灯下的小姑娘”当年也曾风靡全中国。

The German dance-pop duo Modern Talking was formed in Berlin in early 1983 by Dieter Bohlen, then a composer and producer employed by the Intersong label; teaming with vocalist Thomas Anders, they soon began work on their first single, 1984's &You're My Heart, You're My Soul.& Modern Talking's debut LP, succinctly titled The First Album, followed a year later on the heels of their second single, &You Can Win If You Want; & the duo's sophomore effort, Let's Talk About Love, appeared in late 1985, launching the smash &Cheri Cheri Lady.& With 1986's Ready for Romance, Modern Talking scored their biggest hit with &Brother Louie; & however, after 1986's In the Middle of Nowhere tensions between Bohlen and Anders reached their boiling point, and following the release of their fifth LP, Romantic Warriors, Bohlen assembled a new project, Blue System. The final Modern Talking album, In the Garden of Venus, appeared posthumously at the end of 1987, after which Anders mounted a solo career. In 1998 he and Bohlen reunited for a new Modern Talking album, Back for Good.
