SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION: "If You Ever Wanna Change Your Mind" + Top 20 Greatest Sally Shapiro Moments

One of my most beloved musical acts, Sally Shapiro, have decided to call it quits. The talented pair of Swedes (Sally Shapiro & Johan Agebjörn) who have been reinventing the sweetest sounds of Italo Disco so passionately for the past 10 years, gaining a well deserved cult status among electronic musos globally, announced that "If You Ever Wanna Change Your Mind" is in fact their last single.

Here's what they had to say in an official press release:

"Our musical tastes don't overlap that much anymore. Johan is more into 90s-style electronica these days, and Sally is into non-electronic pop. In three years, we've only managed to record these two songs as Sally Shapiro, so with this single we have decided to call our musical project a day, and we would like to thank everyone who followed us on this journey."

Adding the following words on their official Facebook Page:

"We are moving into different musical directions and we don't want to bore you with music made for any other reason than a commonly shared inspiration and love for the music. We want to thank you all for your support through the years."

The single was out on a rather special day, marking exactly 10 years since the release party of Sally Shapiro's debut single "I'll Be By Your Side".

To celebrate 10 years of Sally Shapiro's colourful synth anthems, I have compiled the following list of my very own, most treasured songs by the Swedish duo:
