The track quickly became a disco slam, and it's not surprising that covers soon began to be performed on it. Army of Lovers.

But before presenting to the world the impeccable and well-known to all of us today "Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)", the producers decided to try their luck with francophone version "Haut Les Mains (Donne moi Ton Cœur)".
