Music video[edit]

The 1940s-themed video premièred on 18 September 2009.[6] Shot in a cinematic style, it depicts the three band members, H. P. Baxxter, Rick J. Jordan, and Michael Simon escorting Antonella Ruggiero into an opera house, wearing full formal outfits. They enter through a storm of paparazzi and reporters. Jordan and Simon appear to be securing the premises, as Baxxter goes to a balcony seat. Ruggiero portrays an operatic singer, and she prepares for a large show before a mirror. Jordan spots an attractive woman climbing the stairs, and doesn't give it a second thought. Ruggiero exits out on the stage, and sings for a full house. Baxxter, Jordan, and Simon watch the show, and they notice an assassin (who is in fact the woman Jordan spotted earlier) poking a high-precision rifle through the curtains on the floor above them. Jordan and Simon run up the stairs to apprehend the shooter, while Baxxter throws himself off the balcony in a failed attempt to take the bullet for Ruggiero. The bullet is fired, and Ruggiero dies in Baxxter's arms at the end of the video, as they escape the opera house.

An extended version of the video premièred 25 September 2009. The video features over 2 minutes of extra footage, and the extended version of the song. The end of the video shows the reflections of the three band members failed attempts to stop the sniper from killing Ruggiero.[7] The video, like many other Scooter videos, features a historic automobile, this one being a Citroën Traction Avant.


"Ti Sento" samples the 1985 song of the same name by the Italian group Matia Bazar, of which Antonella Ruggiero was the lead singer at the time (from 1975 to 1989). The sound effect is from Wildstylez's "Music or noize". The pre-melody also samples Crypsis & Kold Konexion's "Sonic sabotage".
