We are sure that many people remember this melodic composition. By the way: it successfully complemented the fourth album Modern TalkingBut at the same time, it has become alarm bells for the project. This is their first single that did not reach the top of the German chart. In spite of everything the song became a hit in Europe, but just a year after its release the duo split...

As for the lyrical stuffing, the "Cadillac Geronimo.The lyrics for which Dieter wrote are about... love, of course! It seems that when it comes to the works of Modern Talking, it can't be otherwise. Although this song also talks about a fantastic machine that drives all the girls crazy...

"Cadillac Geronimo.
Makes all the girls sad.
Geronimo understands them - ah, what a car he has!"

Do You Wanna

Another composition of the duo that we would like to recall, and which was loved in the USSR, is "Do You Wanna" from their debut studio album. It's groovy and rhythmic, sung on behalf of a hero who's ready to warm his beloved with tenderness and love...

"I'll be your nightly loving doctor..."

Finally, we offer a reminder of the wonderful "Mona Lisa."which was released on the duo's third album. The composition was the second track in a row, and its lyrics, as always, are saturated with romance and high feelings...

"Good guys only succeed in movies,
And in reality, vicious women are messing with their heads,
There will never be anyone like you again.
It's true..."

In the song, the main character declares that there is no woman like "her" in the world. And that it does not matter what position he is in now: even "penniless" he's the happiest in the world as long as she's around.
