"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.

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]
