I was very young during my Love Parade times when I met Leila! A true experience!
Leila K Open Sesame "Open Sesame" is a song by Swedish eurodance artist Leila K. It was released in 23 October 1992 as the lead single from the album, Carousel. The song was a huge success in many countries in 1993, reaching the top 10 in Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland.
This awesome "sexy" dance song was performed by Swedish band Alcazar, from their debut studio album Casino (2000). I am honored to know the girls personally! They are simply nice, not hot only! The song
samples Sheila and B. Devotion's 1979 hit "Spacer". Alexander Bard produced this song and can be heard in the middle of this song (he is also featured in the music video). In 2001 the song became Alcazar's first international hit single, reaching the top 10 in Flemish Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Switzerland. By the end of 2002, "Crying at the Discoteque" sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide.
"Don't You Worry Child" is the sixth single released by Swedish house music supergroup Swedish House Mafia. It is the last single from their second studio album, Until Now, featuring vocals from Swedish singer John Martin.
"Levels" (stylised as "LE7ELS") is a song by Swedish DJ Avicii. An early instrumental version of the song was first played by Avicii during an appearance on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix in December 2010, while the final version with Etta James's vocals was first performed at the Ultra Music Festival in March 2011, although the final instrumental version was played several times before the festival at clubs and events, even in December 2010. "Levels" was officially released on 28 October 2011 and peaked at number one in Sweden and on the Dance music charts in the United States and became a top ten hit in Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
