Cascada - Everytime We Touch

10 July Critic Jonni 0 Comments

This is one of Cascada's first ever songs and music videos. In their early days they released many covers and did a few cover albums, before they crafted some of the best original dance songs ever heard. This song takes the chorus of "Everytime We Touch" by Maggie Reilly, with original verses. This song was Cascada's biggest hit before "Evacuate the Dancefloor" topped the charts in 2009, "Everytime We Touch" got to No.2 on the charts, just missing the top spot, thanks to "Hips Don't Lie" by Shakira. This song is still a big hit, as you can tell by the YouTube comments, and there are a load of remixes for this song, which just goes to show this song is a club classic, even though it's only 6 years old.

As I have previously said, Cascada is a 3-piece German Dance group who consists of Natalie Horler, Manian, and Yanou. They are well known now after a few big hits, and DJ Manian has released quite a few solo singles which doesn't make an impact on the charts, but definitely makes an impact in the clubs. Cascada has recently released a new album called "Original Me", which also has a "Greatest Hits" CD included, which features all their hits and more, including this song "Everytime We Touch".

The song is about wanting to be in a relationship with someone but something's holding them back, maybe someone's in the way, or they were friends before hand and don't want to break the friendship up. However Natalie Horler sings about how she likes to be with this guy and they should at least give it a go, because "Everytime we touch I get this feeling". The song is really catchy and should have got to number 1 but it just missed out.

The music video takes place in a Library, and Natalie is after a geek, it clearly shows that she likes this person, as it's probably not the looks she's after. I like how she messes up the library, and the guy follows her about trying to tidy it back up again. I like how she dances on the tables as well, as library's are supposed to be quiet, and no one would dare to play lots of music and sing and dance on tables.

I like how Natalie gets evils from the background characters, but then they too start dancing along, as if the music has empowered them and they just can;t help but move. However there isn't a lot to this music video, and only links in with the song slightly, I don't know how you could make it link better though.

Overall, it's a great song that should have got to number 1 on the chart, but none-the-less, the music video is okay and definitely deserves the rating I'm giving it, maybe I'm being a bit too generous. I hope there is more great Cascada hits on their way!
