"Now You're Gone" is a song performed by Swedish dance musician Basshunter in cooperation with DJ Mental Theo's Bazzheadz. The single uses the same music as "Boten Anna", Basshunter's major European hit in 2006, but its lyrics, performed in English by Sebastian Westwood, are completely different.

The song was covered by Crazy Frog as "Everyone", on his third studio album and parodied by former BBC Radio 1 host, Chris Moyles.[1]

Differences from "Boten Anna"[edit]

In 2007, DJ Mental Theo used the "Boten Anna" instrumental to create a bootleg English-language version for his DJ sets in Magaluf, Mallorca. It was this song that eventually became released as a single.[2]

The song's theme is different from "Boten Anna"; "Boten Anna" is about an IRC bot, and "Now You're Gone" is about a young couple breaking up. The music video expands on this theme, although it suggests a reunion of the couple, which is not referenced in the song itself. The tempo of the song has also been increased compared to "Boten Anna".

Reception[edit]

"Now You're Gone" peaked at number one in the United Kingdom in January 2008, having entered at number fourteen there on downloads alone. The single remained at the top spot for five weeks before being knocked off by Duffy's "Mercy". The song also topped the charts in the neighboring Republic of Ireland. "Now You're Gone" became the 40th most bought track worldwide in the sixth week of 2008, where it remained in the same place for three weeks.[3]

Music video[edit]

The Iranian model Aylar Lie plays the female lead in the music video of the song. The other two girls that are with Aylar Lie are Silje Lian (who is in the pink top before she gets changed) and Marielle Mathiassen.

The music video expands on the song's theme of a young man and a woman ending their relationship, depicting the couple breaking up over SMS text messages. At the end of the video, the couple kiss, but the lyrics do not follow this event.

To date the video has experienced massive success on Internet video hosting site YouTube, where the video has reached over 200 million views over uploads of the music video on the Hard2Beat and Ultra Music video channels.[4]
