Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Better Off Alone

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.

So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


Better Off Alone – Alice Deejay

Today we look at a trance track that was released at the end of the nineties and was a song that was always on the radio or on Top of The Pops.

Better Off Alone was released by Alice Deejay on the 19th July 1998. It was produced by Wessel Van Dipen, Dennis den Driesschen, Sebastian Moljin and Elke Kalberg. The song was released under the record label of Violent B.V / Violent Records.

When the song was originally released it was only an instrumental however when it was in post production that the lyrics ‘do you think you’re better off alone?’ became part of the song.

The song was first released in the dance clubs and became an instant hit. It went to number 1 in the UK Dance Charts, Canada and Scotland. It went into the top 10 in Sweden, the Netherlands, France, Australia and Norway.

I remember this song being being around a lot as it was always on the radio and music shows. I thought this song was alright but I wouldn’t go out of my way to listen to it. It had a catchy beat and I can understand why it was a hit in the clubs as it was more then likely a good song to dance to.
