What's the story?

"STEREO LOVE" is the dance hit heard 'round the world by Edward Maya, a Romanian musician and producer, and guest vocalist Vika Jigulina. Its theme is a common one, about two people in love, one of whom asks the other to make a mature effort to work out their problems and issues. There's no profanity, sex, or substance use discussed here, resulting in a track that's OK for both younger and older ears.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

It's easy to understand why "Stereo Love" received nearly 100 million YouTube views in less than a year: the song's hypnotic beat, Vika Jigulina's plaintive vocals, and a digitized accordion tone make the tune sound somewhat other-worldly, haunting your thoughts long after it's done. Several up-and down-beat remixes add more or less intensity to the track, depending on your mood.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about whether Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina contribute any new insights to the age-old theme of romantic love in this song.

  • Why do artists continue to produce songs about love over and over again?

Will have you singing long after the song ends...

Very catchy song, and a great one at that! Nothing too bad except for the one line "When I touch your body, I feel I'm losing control." It's a fine song for kids 9+.

Kinda Good

I kinda like this song. I don't really understaand what they're singing but it's still a good song. Plus I heard this song many times when I was on vacation in Mexico
Kid, 12 years old June 25, 2011

Romanian dance tune is repetitive but clean.

This song is about trying to solve the problems you may stumble across in relationships. It has a repetitive upbeat rhythm and a few semi-steamy lines. The cover art is inappropriate and gives a wrong message of what the song is about. It makes the song look like it is about hardcore sex.
