Released: 5th August 2002.
Pop quartet ATC have been churning out radio hits on the continent for over two years now, and they finally get around to releasing their biggest hit in the UK. "Around The World" was No. 1 in Germany for six weeks in 2000, and became the most played record on German radio ever! Later that year, BMG tried to release it in the UK, but they didn't try very hard and ended up having to cancel it. Now they're about to release their second album in Europe, and EMI Liberty have bought their license to the UK (like they did with DJ Otzi & Hermes House Band), so this time it looks like we're all going to be la la la la la-ing until Christmas!
This song was released in Europe ages ago. It turned out to be a great success, and is one of those dance songs that may be a little on the cheesy side, but works quite well for what it represents. That would be life in its lightest mode. The catchy hook is a big plus, but the overall sound might be a little too dated for the single to make a significant impact.
