Me & My (real names Susanne Georgi, born July 27, 1976 and Pernille Georgi, born July 24, 1974) are a Danish Eurodance-bubblegum sister duo signed under the EMI record label. They are best known for their first international hit song "Dub-I-Dub" (1995), which has been featured on many compilations including the Dancemania series albums.[1] "Dub-I-Dub" went on to sell one million copies worldwide, while their self-titled debut album sold two million copies.[2]

Biography[edit]

Before becoming Me & My, the two were known as "SuPer Sisters" (the word "SuPer" being a compound of the two singers' first names). Towards the beginning of the 1990s they released two Danish-language albums and tried to enter the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, but Susanne, then 15, and Pernille, then 17, were too young to enter the contest. The song which they were supposed to sing, eventually finished second in the Danish national final.

Besides attaining a reasonable level of popularity in Europe, the duo have also gained fans around the world due to their songs "Dub-I-Dub" and "So Many Men" being licensed by Toshiba-EMI Ltd. (the Japanese division of EMI) for the popular arcade video game series, Dance Dance Revolution. Despite the tracks debuting in the games in 1999 and 2000 respectively, they are still firm favourites with players of the game, and "Dub-I-Dub" was included as one of several classic tracks on the tenth-anniversary DDR game, DDR X, released in May 2008.

Susanne and Pernille still write songs for other artists, and recently revealed on "Musikprogrammet" (a Danish music program on television) that they are saving some of the best songs for a "sometime in the future album".

In 2007 Me & My finally got to take part in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix (national selection for Eurovision Song Contest) with the song "Two Are Stronger Than One". On February 2, they qualified from the semi final to the final, which was held on February 10. Even though they were the bookmakers' favourites to win, Me & My only managed to get 8 points, finishing 6th. [1]

On December 1, 2007, Me & My released their first single in 6 years since La La Superstar in 2001 - a Christmas ballad called "Too Much Christmas".

In early 2013, Pernille Georgi of Me & My mentioned on her official fanpage that Me & My may be active again in 2014 and have mentioned plans in Japan, possibly for a tour. They are performing their first new concert as Me & My on September 4, 2013.
