Please excuse my ignorance (and bad taste in music) as have not been in the UK for a while.

BUT..............

has there been a song out that goes something like "TV breaks it, TV even makes it, TV makes a superstar wherever you are...."

It's a REALLY cheesy, REALLY bad song, but very big in Russia (maybe cos they don't understand the words, I don't know). Anyway, I was just wondering who sings it?

Anyone know??

    I know the song. Dead cheesy but one of those that stays in your head all bloody day.

    Its by the German group Modern Talking. I didn't realise it was out in the UK as well. It was realised just after the end of Deutschland sucht den Superstar which was their version of Popidol. Dieter Bohl, the permatanned old wrinkly looking half of Modern Talking was the main judge on the show and I suppose he released the song on the back of his popularity on the show.

    Doesn't surprise me thats it big in Russia too, they are nearly as bad as the Germans for taking to trashy Europop hits.

    Damn it... I can't stop singing the song now!!!:p
