Let the music play...

Shannon, whose real name is Shannon Greene, is an American singer-songwriter and considered to this day as the queen of Hi-NRG.

Her first Single "Let the music play" came out in 1983 and for a first title, it was a real masterstroke. The track set fire to every Dancefloor on the planet and to this day remains unquestionably one of the biggest dance hits of the decade. The singer's notoriety literally explodes.

The album "Let the music play" was released a few months later in 1984. And just like the Single of the same name, the album was a worldwide hit. Over 1.5 million copies will be sold worldwide. Album from which a second top hit will be extracted with the Single "Give me tonight". And to a lesser extent, the Singles "My heart's divided" and "Sweet somebody" will also be a significant success.

She did it again a year later in 1985 with the album "Do you wanna get away", an album of lesser success but still successful. The Single of the same name will be the biggest hit, followed by little "Stronger together". Singles which will already be the artist’s latest notorious hits.

Everything that will come out subsequently will meet little or no success despite a large number of titles released. Sadly, the singer will have come down as quickly as she came on and walked through the musical history of the 80s like a shooting star.

To discover or rediscover.

Tracks :

1983 ... a first title which rhymes with planetary mega hit. For a first try, it is a real masterstroke. The singer signs here quite simply one of the biggest dance hits of the decade. She couldn't have asked for a better start. MAS-TER-FUL !

1984 ... she does it again a year later with a title that will certainly not have the same level of success as its predecessor but which will also have a nice career in the Charts

1984 ... always so Dance, always so effective. Admittedly, a little less inspired, but of quality all the same. The singer is on a dynamic which now carries her from success to success

1984 ... a BIG year 1984 with no less than 3 classified titles. It goes quietly but surely !

1984 ... her first Intimist moment. And even if this title will not be classified, it is frankly worth the detour. She demonstrates here and in a brilliant way that she is good in all areas, the mark of the Great !

1985 ... a new global mega hit with this new song Dance which works perfectly. The singer clearly stands out as one of the sure values of the moment. HU-GE !

1985 ... BIG year 1984 but BIG year 1985 as well. Two beautiful years which saw the singer give herself to her heart's content and succeed in everything she undertakes !

1985 ... she even allows herself the luxury of taking over one of the flagship titles of the Foreigner group dating from 1981. And making Dance even more a song that already was !

1986 ... beautiful new Ultimate Slow. And which as paradoxical as it may seem will not even be classified. Go figure ...

1986 ... successes are increasingly rare. After 2 totally euphoric years, the rest is more complicated than expected. And yet, it is not for lack of good will ...

1987 ... the last hit. And again, the title will only be classified across the Channel. A somewhat laborious end of the adventure ...

1992 ... she tries the 90s adventure. The sound has adapted, as has the style. Unfortunately, faced with completely unbridled competition, it is difficult to compete !

1995 ... this time, it is indeed the end. Despite several bailout attempts, the singer could not be brought back into the race. A great adventure all the same !

1999... the end of the high level adventure but certainly not the end of the adventure. Because the singer still has things to offer and especially to sing…

1999...we are going to make the most of everything she will continue to offer us because there is quality in all of that, that's clear...

1999...of course she will no longer rank any Singles but it would have been a shame to overlook all those that will be released from now on...

2006...we will lose sight of her for almost 7 years but here she is again anyway. A desire to continue the adventure that undoubtedly commands respect...

2006...and as in music everything is always possible, she says to herself that a return to the front of the stage is always possible. Who would really blame her...

2006...certainly there is little chance that this will happen but the main thing is to believe in it as they say. And she definitely believes it...

2016...well, we're going to completely lose sight of her for almost 10 years, but here she is again. And this to the delight of its basic fans of course...

2020...she will come back more and more sporadically but she comes back no matter what. Isn't that the main thing you will tell me...'s better to come back sporadically than not at all. That's what a bunch of singers who started out like her and who haven't been there for a long time could say to each other...

2020...we therefore imagine that this title will not be the last because we now know that with her everything remains possible. So when is her next return...?
