The glam rock anthem "Laura" is taken from the Scissor Sisters hugely successful self-titled debut album that has had critics and music fans salivating with pleasure throughout 2004.

Agnetha Faltskog - When You Walk Into The Room (CDs 2 track, CDs 3 track)
The second single to be taken from Agnetha Faltskog's "My Colouring Book"??album (following "If I Ever Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind"), is a fantastic interpretation of a former Searchers hit. Upbeat and fun this proves that there really is life after Abba.
Sweet Coffee??is??a Belgian Soul / Jazzy / Dance act formed in 2003.
There members are: Samia Verdeyen (vocals) Patrick Bruyndonckx (music) Raf Brescia (music)
First single 'Don't Need You (Anymore)' became a big hit in Belgium but they also had success in the Netherlands and other European countries.
Their debut album 'Memory Lane' will not only be released in the Benelux but also in the UK, Australia, South America, Greece, Israel, Switzerland, Portugal??and Italy.
Their major aim is to make music that could be put in the same category as St. Germain. Timeless music, music you can listen to wherever you are, whenever you want.. no matter what you are doing. But at the same time their music is catchy and dancable.
All??three singles can be found on their debut album but also great songs such as 'Let It Flow', 'Weekend Lover' and the Sade cover 'No Ordinary Love'.
