This album was Kenny Rogers' and Dottie West's second album together. Their previous album, Every Time Two Fools Collide, was a major seller, and made them one of the biggest duet acts country music has ever seen. This album was no different. The album sold very well, and peaked at number three on the Top Country Albums chart in 1979, and No.82 on the Billboard 200. This album featured cover versions of classic hits by other artists, including two country hit singles, one went to number one, called "All I Ever Need Is You" (a big hit for Sonny and Cher), and another went to number three, called "'Til I Can Make It on My Own" (a hit for Tammy Wynette).
The album was certified by the RIAA as Platinum. It has sold over 2 million copies world-wide.
Classics is the second full-length album from Ratatat, released on August 22, 2006. As with their first album, Classics is almost entirely instrumental, with the only exception being a large cat-like sound sample used in "Wildcat."
During a September 15, 2006 interview on radio station KEXP, the band revealed that part of the album was recorded in upstate New York in a house owned by Björk.
This album produced three singles: "Lex", "Wildcat", and "Loud Pipes".
The track "Tropicana" was featured in the 2007 film "Knocked Up".
Beethoven is a dog, who was first discovered by Emily Newton in her bedroom one morning. The whole family is soon introduced to the St. Bernard; however, the father George Newton has his moments with Beethoven, who ends up into different mishaps time after time. When not with the Newton family, Beethoven interacts with his puppies, or with animals outside of the house.
Unlike the movie, Beethoven could talk, at least among the other animals; incidentally he would also talk in the 2011 direct-to-video film, Beethoven's Christmas Adventure. The same plot was used in another animated series Free Willy, where the main character also could talk. Some of the music was used for the DIC cartoon, What-a-Mess.
"Carry You" was released as the album's first single in June 2013 and reached number-six in the United Kingdom, marking the group's first top ten track. In September 2013, the band confirmed their second single would be "Beautiful Life". It was released on 21 October, preceding the release of their debut studio-album by one week. The third single was "Loving You Is Easy" which charted at number 9 in Ireland, and charted in the lower regions of the UK Singles Chart.
Union J promoted the album by embarking on their first headlining tour, the Magazines + TV Screens Tour, throughout December 2013 and January 2014, in support of their first record release.
Background and production
During a performance in Cardiff on 15 December 2012, Union J announced that they had signed a recording contract with Sony Music. On 28 January 2013, it was revealed that the record label was that of sub-division RCA Records and that the group would be releasing their debut single in June. On 14 January, it was announced that Union J were in London recording their debut single that day. On 12 January 2013, the band announced news of recording their debut single via Twitter: "Recording or first single on Monday! So sorry Belfast but we have to change the gig date, things are moving so fast for us! We'll be back! X". On 22 April, it was revealed that Union J's debut single "Carry You" would be released on 2 June.
The Beethoven film series is a series of eight American films, in which the plot revolves around a family attempting to control the antics of their pet, a Saint Bernard.

In Beethoven, the Newton family finds and adopts a Saint Bernard. The family, with the exception of the father, George (Charles Grodin), becomes attached to the dog. Meanwhile, a sadistic veterinarian involved with animal experimentation is planning to kill Beethoven for his latest experiment, and George, after discovering his fondness for the dog, springs into action to rescue his pet. Beethoven was released on April 3, 1992.
Beethoven's 2nd (1993)
In Beethoven's 2nd, Beethoven sires a litter of puppies, and the Newton family tries to save them from the dame's owner, who alternatively wishes to kill or sell the puppies. Beethoven's 2nd was released on December 17, 1993.
