They followed up with a string of other hits, namely " You Can Win If You Want ", " Cheri, Cheri Lady ", " Brother Louie ", " Atlantis Is Calling S.
In , they reunited and produced several new songs such as " You Are Not Alone ", " Sexy, Sexy Lover ", " No Face, No Name, No Number ", " Ready for the Victory ", and " TV Makes the Superstar ", before dissolving again in Their controversial break-ups led to several lawsuits and heavy coverage from the German tabloid press.
During their two stints together, the duo sold million records worldwide and received numerous sales certifications around the globe.
After the two break-ups of Modern Talking, Anders performed as a solo artist during the s and after During the first Modern Talking split, he released six studio albums, none of which managed to chart, whereas some singles such as "Love of My Own" achieved mediocre success.
Only his Spanish language album Barcos de Cristal proved successful in Argentina, where its eponymous title track climbed to number 1. Following the second break-up, Anders started a more successful solo career, with his album This Time reaching number 14 in Germany and producing number 1 hits in Russia and Turkey.
His album Strong reached Platinum status in Russia for sales of more than , copies. While being unable to match his success with Modern Talking with his solo career, Anders is considered a musical icon in Eastern Europe, where he is more revered than in his native country and regularly performs stadium tours.
In , the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv made him an honorary professor for "shaping the musical taste of a generation", and he holds the distinction for being the best-selling foreign artist of all time in Russia.
Anders was born in Koblenz , West Germany and grew up in the small village of Mörz, a suburb of Münstermaifeld , with an older brother and a younger sister.
His father worked as a civil servant at the local Revenue service agency, while his mother ran a convenience store. He began showing interest in music early as a child, and subsequently took piano and singing lessons.
He did his first stage-performance at age of six, playing Saint Nicholas in a religious children's play.
At the age of ten, he entered a singing contest and won against other children. As a prize, he performed over times at a local music hall in Koblenz, offering a variety of children's songs and Schlager music.
After that, he studied musicology , publishing and German studies for five semesters at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz , with the intention to become a music journalist , all the while trying to become a singer.
Two days after the contest, Anders was offered a record contract by the same jury members of the radio contest. He signed his first record contract with CBS while still in school and took up the stage name of Thomas Anders, performing in the then-popular German Schlager genre.
In , at the age of 17, he published his first single, Schlager ballad " Judy ", which failed to chart. A year later, he appeared in German TV show Hätten Sie heut' Zeit für mich?
Consequently, he was released by CBS in late After finishing school, Anders signed a contract with Hansa Records in He next released another commercially unsuccessful Schlager ballad, " Ich will nicht dein Leben ", produced by fellow Schlager artist G.
In , he was approached by Intersong, a subsidiary of Hansa, whether he was interested to record several German Schlager cover versions of English songs.
Thus, he was introduced to producer Dieter Bohlen ,  with whom he recorded "Was macht das schon? From late to the mid of Bohlen produced other tracks for Anders including "Wovon träumst du denn", "Endstation Sehnsucht" and "Es geht mir gut heut' Nacht", which he performed at German TV shows such as Night Club.
As was the case with his previous attempts at Schlager music, however; all of these songs failed to achieve commercial or critical success.
After both Bohlen and Anders had failed to achieve success in the Schlager genre, Bohlen pitched the idea of forming a Eurodisco duo consisting of Anders as lead singer and himself to BMG.
The label agreed, however; they invested only little money in the project, resulting in low-budget videos and production.
To capitalize on the popularity of the genre, they sang in easily accessible English lyrics, simple and catchy rhythms, and sported then-popular outfits.
After that, the song occupied top ten positions in thirty-five countries, including their homeland, where it remained perched at the top of the charts for six consecutive weeks.
The track was then followed by another number-one hit in Germany and Austria, " You Can Win If You Want ", which was released in the middle of from the debut album The 1st Album.
Soon after their second hit, Modern Talking released the single " Cheri, Cheri Lady " which also quickly climbed to the top of the charts in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Norway , meanwhile entering the top ten in Sweden and the Netherlands.
Both singles also had significant chart success worldwide. The duo also charted high with their sixth single " Geronimo's Cadillac " from the fourth album In the Middle of Nowhere and " Jet Airliner " from their fifth album Romantic Warriors.
Both singles reached the German top ten but where especially successful in Spain, where they reached number one and three, respectively.
Due to their lacklusterly received sixth album, Bohlen terminated the project during an interview, while Anders was in Los Angeles. According to Bohlen, the main reason for breaking up the group was Anders' then-wife Nora, who refused to have her husband interviewed by female reporters, and constantly demanded huge changes made to shows, videos or recordings,  a fact that Anders later admitted in his biography.
Following the break-up of Modern Talking, Anders and his wife emigrated to the United States, where they were unknown. In , he released his first studio album as a solo artist, Different.
Produced by Gus Dudgeon and Alan Tarney , the pop album abandoned his previous Schlager and Eurodisco attempts, but failed to chart. Nonetheless, its lead single, "Love of My Own" peaked at number 24 in Germany.
Neither did his fourth album, 's When Will I See You Again. The release was helmed by a cover of the song of the same name , which also featured original artists The Three Degrees , and "I'll Love You Forever", which charted at numbers 31 and 79 in Germany, respectively.
After his lackluster success in pop music, Anders decided to experiment with new styles for his next releases and moved back to Koblenz.
His fifth studio album Barcos de Cristal , was recorded completely in Spanish. While it failed to chart in his native country, it became a massive success in Argentina , where the eponymous title track was featured in the opening sequence of a soap opera and reached number 1.
The same year, he portrayed the pop star Ypsilon in the episode "Stockholm Marathon" of the police procedural series Kommissar Beck.
His live album Live Concert featured a jazz band and consisted entirely of jazz covers. However, neither release was commercially successful. Also in , he starred in the musical short film Phantomschmerz.
Bohlen and Anders had both opposed the recording of a proper greatest hits album for years. In late , Bohlen suggested the recording of a new album instead and contacted Anders, who had signed a contract with Ariola for an eventual comeback several years prior.
The rerecording switched their style from Euro disco to the s Eurodance , incorporating techno and additional rap vocals by Eric Singleton. In early 98, the duo officially reunited during popular TV show Wetten, dass..?
While, the single entered the top in Germany and Austria, it managed to enter the top in Sweden and the top-5 in France.
Their next albums were still highly successful, albeit not matching the success of Back for Good. In , the album Alone , composed entirely of new songs, entered the German album chart at No.
The singles " Sexy, Sexy Lover " and " You Are Not Alone " were able to enter the top ten and even top five in various European countries. Coinciding with the Chinese calendar , their ninth studio album was titled Year of the Dragon , being certified platinum in Germany.
The lead single " China in Her Eyes " reached number eight in Germany, while going as high as number 6 in Spain. Aside from performing with Modern Talking, Anders was also active as a producer and songwriter.
In , Modern Talking dissolved again, again in controversial fashion. After a heavy altercation before a concert in Rostock , Bohlen animously announced the end of the band live on stage, to the shock of Anders and the public.
Anders subsequently sued Bohlen for libel and succeeded in having certain passages removed, but lost the process for compensation in Anders's third attempt at a solo career proved to be more successful, albeit unable to match the popularity of his Modern Talking periods.
Shortly after the break-up of Modern Talking, Anders started recording his eighth solo album, pop effort This Time , which was released in February Unlike his previous attempts at a solo career, this album proved to be rather successful, climbing to the number 14 spot in Germany.
Furthermore, the three singles from the album, "Independent Girl", "King of Love", and "Tonight Is the Night" charted at 17, 37, and 60 respectively, making This Time his biggest success as a solo artist in his native country.
Furthermore, "King of Love" became a number 1 hit in Turkey , whereas "Independent Girl" reached number 1 in Russia. Book or magazine covers, commercial, promotional, advertorial, endorsement, advertising, or merchandising purposes in any media e.

He and Trinity are now lovers. Neo seeks more advice from the Oracle, unsure of his purpose, while Zion prepares for a massive attack by the Machines from over , Sentinels — giant jellyfish-like machines.
The Oracle directs him on a quest to find the Keymaker, a personified program that has access to numerous backdoors within the system.
The Keymaker will be able to lead Neo safely to the Source , the programming heart of the machine world, which contains the programs sustaining the Matrix.
After the Oracle leaves, Agent Smith now known simply as Smith appears, and it is revealed that Neo had separated Smith from the rest of the Matrix code by shattering him, giving him a life independent of the machine's systems, and now the two of them share a "connection" to each other.
Smith is no longer an Agent of the Matrix, but has become more virus -like, able to insert his code into other systems and infect other programs and human minds to make copies of himself.
Neo fends off hundreds of these Smiths and escapes. Later, he, Morpheus, and Trinity steal the Keymaker from his keeper, The Merovingian.
During this time, Neo stays behind to fight off the Merovingian's men and becomes separated from the others, being trapped in the Merovingian's mansion five hundred miles away in the mountains.
He flies off to help them and only arrives in time to save Morpheus and the Keymaker from two agents crashing two trucks together. The Keymaker explains that two power stations elsewhere in the Matrix must be disabled in a short time window to successfully disable the security system of a building where the door to the Source will appear, allowing Neo to reach it.
This task is accomplished; but the Keymaker is killed, a hovercraft is destroyed, and Trinity is put in jeopardy by Agents of the Matrix; a vision that Neo has seen earlier in his dreams.
Entering the door, Neo finds himself confronted by the Architect , a program which created and designed The Matrix. The Architect presents Neo with a radically different explanation of his origins and purpose, claiming that Neo is actually the sixth "One".
He goes on to say that Zion has been destroyed by the machines five times before; faced with the dilemma of allowing humanity to be destroyed, or allowing the machines' preferred status quo to be reconstructed, Neo's five predecessors have helped reload, or restart the Matrix, before being allowed to rebuild Zion with a handful of freed humans.
The productive output of the Matrix is based upon this repeated cycle of destruction and recreation, to keep the human minds which power it in a stable structure.
The Oracle is as much part of that self-perpetuating design as the Architect, Neo is told, and the prophecy of The One is designed to ensure it runs smoothly each time.
The Architect warns of the annihilation of all human life in and out of the Matrix if he did not enter the Source door to reload the Matrix, but unlike his predecessors, Neo does not enter the door to the Source; he chooses not to believe the Architect's dire warnings of consequences, and to save Trinity instead.
Returning to the Matrix, he catches Trinity as she falls from an upper-story window of a power plant. She dies of a gunshot wound to the heart that she sustains during the fall, but Neo brings her back to life by reaching into her virtual body , removing the bullet, and restarting her heart.
Together, they exit the Matrix and return to the real world. Neo tells Morpheus that the Prophecy was merely another system of control, and that Zion's destruction is imminent.
A group of Sentinels begin to converge on their hovercraft, so that Neo and the others are forced to abandon it and flee as it is destroyed. Neo stays behind, realizing that he can now sense the Sentinels, and stops them from attacking by force of will; however, the effort causes him to fall unconscious.
He and the crew are rescued by the hovercraft Mjolnir also known as the Hammer , the crew of which is dealing with a mystery in the form of Bane, a crew member from another ship, who is the only survivor of an ill-fated attack by the Zion fleet.
Unknown to anyone, Bane has been caught and infected by Smith. The Matrix Revolutions begins immediately after the events of the second movie.
As a result of his struggle with the Sentinels, Neo returns to consciousness finding himself caught in an isolated train station-like limbo only accessible by order of the Merovingian, from which his mind is unable to free itself.
It is here that he meets Sati, a young program created without a purpose who is being smuggled into the Matrix by her parents, who are also programs in the machine world.
Neo remains trapped until freed by Trinity assisted by Morpheus and Seraph who threatens the Merovingian in a Mexican standoff.
After a final visit to the Oracle, Neo learns that he has powers over the machines which extend beyond the Matrix and that Smith is spreading, threatening to destroy both the Matrix and the real world.
Building on the Oracle's previous explanations about the nature of choice, Neo learns that the Architect's assertion that his choice to save Trinity would inherently lead to the extinction of humankind was incorrect, due to his nature as a purely mathematical being rendering him incapable of seeing past choices made by humans as he considers them mere variables in equations.
Having told Neo that he now has the power to choose to end the war and defeat Smith, the Oracle then states "Everything that has a beginning has an end, Neo" and informs him that he must now go to the heavily guarded Machine City in hopes of stopping the Sentinels and Smith.
Soon after Neo leaves, dozens of Smiths come and assimilate Seraph, Sati, and the Oracle. Neo and Trinity are given the Logos , a hovercraft commanded by Morpheus's former lover, Niobe , in what seems to others as a suicidal journey to the Machine City.
Neo, with Trinity as pilot, guide the Logos past the Machine City's defenses, but in the effort the Logos crash-lands, and Trinity sustains fatal injuries and dies.
Neo encounters the Deus Ex Machina, a giant Machine construct and the de facto leader of the Machines. He offers Smith's defeat and destruction in exchange for a truce.
The offer is accepted; Neo enters the Matrix to find that the Smith program has copied itself throughout the simulated world, and has turned it into a rainswept dark simulation.
One of the copies of Smith, having assimilated the Oracle and obtained as much freedom and control over the virtual world as Neo, faces Neo alone.
For a while, the two fight evenly with no real advantage, but ultimately, the tireless Smith begins to wear out Neo and takes control of the fight.
Realizing he cannot win with brute force and not wanting to live without Trinity, Neo allows Smith to assimilate him, which enables the machines to eradicate the Smith virus directly through his body, though Neo's life is sacrificed in the process.
Neo's body is taken away by the Machines in the Machine City, while below in Zion, the Machines stop their attack and retire in deference to the peace that Neo bartered.
The Matrix is rebooted and a beautiful sunrise appears over the horizon, created by Sati in Neo's honor. Although the fate of Neo was never truly revealed in the MMORPG sequel, The Matrix Online , his influence nevertheless had a strong impact on several key events throughout the game.
In the beginning, scattered code fragments of Neo's "RSI" Residual Self Image were found on the bodies of the impostor Agents who appeared across the Mega City during Chapter 1.
When held, these fragments echoed some of the final thoughts of Neo inside the redpill's mind. Each of the three main post-war political organizations inside the Matrix realized the possible significance of these fragments and began fighting amongst themselves to gather as many as they could.
The Oracle reveals a secret society of exiles known only as the Shapers, who are the only ones able to bring the Fragments together in any significant way and that they must be protected from the impostor agents' corruption.
The redpills' distrust and organizational differences prove too much for any strong unity, so that a Shaper fell into the captivity of the false agents.
His power was used to encode some part of The One's being onto them, creating the powerful, pale-skinned "N30 Ag3nts".
In Chapter 1. This would be the driving force behind Morpheus' descent into fanatical terrorism against the System in an attempt to force the Machines to reveal Neo's fate, ultimately leading to his assassination.
The subject of Neo then fell to the side lines for other struggles until the arrival of The Oligarchs in Chapter 9. The original intruder, Halborn, was notably intrigued by the life of The One and was personally shocked about the implications of Neo's ability to affect Machines outside of the simulation had on his search for what he called "The Biological Interface Program".
After Halborn's removal in Chapter 10, little more was questioned until the revelation of the Trinity project, originally headed by The Oracle, in Chapter It was revealed that both Neo and Trinity were actually the culmination of decades of Machine research into translating human DNA perfectly into Machine code, allowing them to interface directly with technology without the need for simulated interfaces.
When The Matrix was in its early writing stages Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski had martial arts actor Brandon Lee in mind for the role of Neo, but Lee was accidentally killed on the set of the film The Crow.
Tom Cruise , Johnny Depp , Brad Pitt , Nicolas Cage , Leonardo DiCaprio , John Cusack , and Mark Wahlberg were approached for the role as well.
Will Smith , who turned down the role to make Wild Wild West , later said he regretted the decision. Neo has carried, since his conception, the Matrix's source code known as the Prime Program.
This gives him the ability to freely manipulate the simulated reality of the Matrix, similar to the authority a system administrator has over a given system.
He manifests these abilities as various superhuman powers. The power Neo exhibits most often is akin to telekinesis in the Matrix. In that, he seems capable of manipulating any object in the Matrix through will alone.
By focusing this ability upon himself, he can fly at amazing speeds and jump great distances. Whilst his speed is never specified, he flies from the Merovingian's mountain manor to the highway " miles due south" in a very short time.
