"More and More" is a platinum-selling hit recorded by the Germany-based 1990s eurodance music project known as Captain Hollywood Project. It reached number 1 in Germany and was a top-5 hit in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Israel, Italy, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

Production and Influence[edit]

The music for "More and More" was written by Nosie Katzmann, Giora Schein and Oliver Reinecke. Lyrics were written by front man/rapper Tony Dawson-Harrison (Captain Hollywood) and Nosie Katzmann.[1] As executive producer of the single, Harrison worked with the collaborating production teams known as DMP (including Katzmann) and Cyborg (Marc Kamradt and Frank Schlingloff). Harrison chose singer Nina Gerhard to provide the chorus vocals for the track.

Upon release in July 1992, "More and More" became a major hit in several countries in Europe, particularly in Germany, where it reached no. 1 for four weeks. It was also a crossover pop hit in the United States, where it reached no. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song remained in the top 40 for 12 weeks. By 1993, the single charted at no. 1 for two weeks on the US Billboard Maxi singles charts, outselling Janet Jackson's "That's the Way Love Goes".

In 2017 BuzzFeed listed the song at number 81 in their The 101 Greatest Dance Songs Of the '90s list.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "The beats are rugged, and are topped by a breezy, radio-minded R&B melody. The give-and-take between sultry female vocals and deepthroated male rapping is appropriately seductive."[3]

The Gavin Report wrote: "Germany, not Hollywood, is home to The Captain, who has already racked up enough chart activity to become this week's RECORD TO WATCH. Many are comparing this production to Snap's "Rhythm Is A Dancer" with its Euro-Dance feel. One very hot entry!"[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "More and More" was directed by Bruce Ashley.[5]
