Heidi Happy

is a Swiss pop musician, who started her solo career in 2005. It didn’t take long until she got the critics’ attention and after some minor success abroad, the most credible band ever to emerge from Switzerland, Yello, asked her to sing on their new single «Toch». Heidi Happy lives now in Amsterdam.

Which song do you listen to when...
you take a bubble bath?
Frank Sinatra - Strangers In The Night
you go to a club?

Am liebsten etwas, das ich weder kenne noch erwarte.

you prepare for an important date?

Ich glaube, ich würde was hässliches abspielen und seinen Humor und seine Ehrlichkeit testen.

Aber, aber, Heidi verwüstet doch kein Hotelzimmer!

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Frank Sinatra - My Way
you drive a car late at night?

Da hab ich nichts zu sagen. Hab selber kein Auto.

Rita Reys - One Less Bell To Answer

Braucht bei mir aber hoffentlich mehr als einen Song.
