"Here I Go Again" is a song recorded by Swedish singer-songwriter E-Type. It was released in November 1998 as the second single from his third album Last Man Standing and was a hit in several countries, particularly in Sweden and Finland where it reached number one.

Critical reception[edit]

Music & Media wrote about the song: "Packing several hooks and a peppy eurobeat, the track is lushly produced with more than a hint of Jim Steinman's "more is better" approach. Pure pop, very Scandi and very programmable."[1]
