Freebase

  1. Maybe

    "Maybe" is a song performed by all-female German pop group No Angels. It was written and composed by Pelle Ankarberg, Niclas Molinder, Maryann Morgan, and Joacim Persson and originally recorded by American-Norwegian pop singer Trine Rein, featuring strings by violinist Andreas Ljones. An uplifting rock pop song that features a heavy guitar riff sample, it incorporates an uncredited sample of The Beatles' 1969 number-one record "Come Together", while its lyrics revolve around relationship that is built upon contingence and hesitancy. In October 2006, Rein and Ljones qualified for the Melodi Grand Prix 2007 with the song, the television show in which the Norwegian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 was chosen. It eventually finished the contest in the final round, losing to Guri Schanke's "Ven a bailar conmigo". The same year, "Maybe" was also recorded by the re-formed No Angels for their fourth studio album, Destiny. Produced by frequent collaborators Twin from Redfly Music, it was selected as album's second single and released on June 15, 2007 in German-speaking Europe, where it reached number 36 on the German Singles Chart and number 62 on the Ö3 Austria Top 40 chart, becoming one of the band's lowest-charting single up to that date.
