"Everytime We Touch" is a song recorded by Maggie Reilly for her 1992 album Echoes. The song was produced by Armand Volker and recorded under the label of Mambo Musik. It was a major hit in Europe in the 1990s, reaching #1 chart position in Norway and helped increase her profile as an independent artist — back in the 1980s she was known mostly for her contribution of the female vocals in the hit song "Moonlight Shadow" by Mike Oldfield and many other Oldfield's albums.

Cover versions[edit]

"Everytime We Touch" has been covered by a few artists, including Trixiana, Lacara and Trinity.

  • A Swedish version, with lyrics by Keith Almgren, called "Varje gång du ler" (eng. "Everytime You Smile") has been recorded by Septembers 1994 and later by Cosmos (1997 on the album "Jag har en dröm").
  • In 2005, the song's chorus was borrowed, with permission from Reilly, for a Eurodance version also called "Everytime We Touch", performed by dance group Cascada. This cover version was a major hit in the U.S., peaking in the top 10 on the pop chart. Although the new version has completely different verses, the writing credit still appears the same as it appeared on the original recording by Maggie Reilly.
  • The Croatian song "Sedam Dana" by a band named Karma also uses the same basic melody.
  • The Techno/Dance group Cash Cash also created a version of this song using the lyrics from Cascada.
