2 Unlimited Return After 13 Years

5 May

2 Unlimited Before

I’m a child of the 80s and I grew up listening to some really interesting stuff through the 90s.

A few days ago I took a ride down memory lane and thanks to YouTube I dug up some old videos of my favorite artists. It’s amazing how my taste in music has changed through the years, going from Eurodance and techno music to RnB and pop.

One of the groups that I used to listen to a lot was 2 Unlimited, a Dutch duo with hits like “Get Ready For This”, “Twilight Zone” and “No Limit”. 2 Unlimited started in 1991 with rapper Ray Slijngaard and singer Anita Doth and they released music till the late 90s.

2 Unlimited After

Back in the late 90s there were a lot of rumors going on that Anita was killed in a car accident and it didn’t help when the band stopped producing music right after that news. So, imagine my surprise when I found out that she’s still alive and even more interestingly they band have released a new single in January 2010 called “In Da Name Of Love”, under the name Ray and Anita.

Besides the obvious signs of aging on the group members, both 38 years old now, they have pretty much preserved and updated their sound just enough to be able to compete with more recent groups producing music in the same genre.

I watched a few of their live performances in Belgium and I have a feeling even they think they are too old for this business or at least to perform live events, either way I’m glad they are back with their new single.

Below is their video from their 2 Unlimited days “No One” and 2nd is Ray and Anita with “In Da Name Of Love”. Enjoy!


Love Is A Battlefield – Pat Benatar

18 Feb

I was driving around with my friend when this song came on the radio and made both of us singing and dancing in the car. Pat Benatar is great! So dramatic and the dance at the end of the video just kills me but I’m guessing it was a cool video when it first came out in the 80s.
