"I Promised Myself" is a song written and originally performed by Nick Kamen. It was released as a single twice: first from his album Move Until We Fly in 1990, then as a remix in 2004. The original version achieved success in Austria and Sweden where it topped the charts. It was covered by 1980s band Dead or Alive, and in 2004, the song was covered by A-Teens. In 2009 the song was covered by eurodance artist Basshunter.
A-Teens covered the song and released it as a single from their album Greatest Hits. The band's version of the track was produced by Grizzly and Tysper. It was one of three new songs the others being original. The song was the only single on the album.
The video was directed by Gustav Jonhson and was filmed in Sweden and shows the band's members images inserted in scenes from past videos, so that they appear to be interacting with the teenagers they were before.
The video was a hit in both Sweden and Latin America reaching #1 on MTV Countdowns (MTV Top Ten Argentina) and it was the year's 23rd most played video on MTV South America and 34th in MTV Mexico. The song peaked at #1 on Tu Música (Argentina), #6 on Musica Total (Argentina), #7 on MTV Top Ten Mexico, and #12 on Much Music Top 20 Argentina.
The plot of the music video is that Basshunter goes to find Aylar Lie, and goes through all the trouble of finding her after receiving an unseen call from a friend telling Basshunter that they have found her and that he needs to get to the hospital. Whilst in the taxi to the hospital he looks out the window and then down at his phone in his hands that shows pictures of Aylar Lie and then recalls memories of Basshunter and Aylar Lie. The taxi then gets stuck in traffic so Basshunter gets out the taxi and starts walking to the hospital, he then arrives at the hospital and asks where he can find Aylar and goes in search for her whilst remembering the last night he saw her in the "Every Morning" music video. He finds the room, opens the door but then finds her with her ex-boyfriend, Lucas, from the music videos "All I Ever Wanted" and "Now You're Gone". This video has left yet another cliffhanger in the story of Basshunter and his quest of getting the girl he wants forever.
