"Anything" is a song recorded by the German eurodance band Culture Beat. It was released in December 1993 as the third single from their second album Serenity and was released in December 1993.

The song was a hit in many countries, particularly in Austria and France where it reached number 3 and number 4, respectively, and in the UK, where it reached number 5. However, it also achieved a great success in the other countries in which it was released, such as Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Critical reception[edit]

Shawnee Smith, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, saying that the singers "do their best with a chorus that is maddeningly silly." She goes on to say that the song has "ample charm, fueled by a double-pack of remixes that are sure to woo DJs at several formats."[1]
