They'll Always Be The 'Ace' In The Hole

+5

My last review on Mya's Backseat (check my profile!) was a little extensive so I'm gonna keep this one shorter and sweeter than a classic pop song.

Ace of Base's 'the sign' 5 or 10 years from now will be known as a pop classic. A 'new' pop classic. It will always be catchy, it will always be memorable, and my grand-nieces and nephews (because I'm a staunch advocate of never having children) will be listening to slightly less creative remix in years time.

I doubt there is a need to describe this song so I'm just going to say if you don't know it, get your head out of your ass and google this amazing group/song! It never gets old, and something tells me it never will! Well, anymore info and I'll have to take back the short and sweet comments, so gang, until next time.

Formed: 1990 in
Years Active: 90 's, 00's
Genre: ROCK

Comprised of vocalists Jenny Berggren and Linn Berggren, and keyboardists Jonas "Joker" Berggren and Ulf "Buddah" Ekberg, the Swedish quartet Ace of Base became a phenomenally popular international act with their 1993 debut album, The Sign. Ace of Base's simple, melodic Euro-disco was equally popular on radio and in the clubs, earning the quartet three U.S. Top Ten singles -- "All That She Wants," "Don't Turn Around," and "The Sign," which spent six weeks at number one.

Before the quartet formed in 1990, sisters Jenny and Linn Berggren sang in local church choirs in Gothenburg, Sweden. Their brother, Jonas, played synthesizers and wrote songs with Ulf Ekberg. Eventually, Jonas and Ulf recruited Jenny and Linn to sing with them, and the quartet began playing dance music at local clubs in the late summer of 1990. Within a year, the group signed with Mega Records and released their debut single, "Wheel of Fortune," in 1992. By that time, the quartet had joined forces with John Ballard, who produced their recordings and wrote the majority of their songs; occasionally, Ballard co-wrote with Jonas Berggren. "Wheel of Fortune" became a hit across Scandinavia, and soon the German-based record label Metronome signed a European distribution deal with the group. "All That She Wants" was Ace of Base's first single in Europe and, ...
