Cold days, hot nights...

Not much information about Moti Special other than the fact that it's a German band formed in 1981 in Hamburg.

Group originally composed of Nils Tuxen, Manfred Thiers, Reinhard Tarrach but also, and above all, Michael Cretu. The same Michael Cretu who a few years later would produce singer Sandra, who in a few years would become one of the leading singers of the decade. We will also find him at the end of the decade at the head of a new adventure and not the least, namely the enormous Enigma concept-project !

Moti Special will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the enormous Single "Cold days, hot nights" released in 1985, Single which will be a real hit in the world that year.

As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.

To discover or rediscover...

Tracks :

1984 ... a first title which immediately sets the mood : it will be Dance, Dance, Dance. And of the First Choice, which does not spoil anything !

1984 ... which will surely remain as their most emblematic title. In just one year, the group will have established himself as one of the sure values of the German and European musical landscape. HU-GE !

1985 ... when we see who is part of the group, in particular a certain Michael Cretu, it was obvious that this group was not going to be in the banality ...

1985 ... despite an obvious talent, the group will not manage to produce a planetary class hit worthy of the name. And yet he had all the living forces within him to make it happen. Hard law of the trade ...

1985 ... in an ocean of Dance titles, the group opens a sweet parenthesis for a moment. And my gosh, it's not that bad ...

1985 ... the Intimist parenthesis quickly closed, here they are again in Dance mode, their favorite field. And once again, the result is damn good up !

1985 ... an inspiration which does not weaken from an Iota and which produces quality title after quality title. A know-how among the best of the moment, that's clear !

1989 ... they are back 4 years later in a group composition, to say the least, reworked. The members have changed but the inspiration too and that is not necessarily good news ...

1990 ... they will have reached the 90s but for what result ... The group is only a shadow of himself and it is high time that all this stopped ...
