Snap! – The Artist
Snap! is a German Eurodance group formed in 1989 by producers Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti. The act has been through a number of line-up changes over the years, including American singers, songwriters and rappers Thea Austin, Turbo B, and Penny Ford. Their best known hits are “The Power” and “Rhythm Is a Dancer”, both of which took the No. 1 spot in multiple countries.
The Power – The Song
‘The Power ‘ is a song by German Eurodance group Snap!. It was released in 1990 as the lead single from their debut studio album, World Power. Written by Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti (under the pseudonyms Benito Benites and John “Virgo” Garrett III) and produced by Snap!, “The Power” was the group’s third single. Featuring a rap by Turbo B and vocals by Penny Ford, the single became an international hit. The song opens with the spoken Russian, meaning “The American company Transceptor Technology has started production of the ‘Personal Companion’ computer”. “Personal Companion” was a computer-like device for the blind and visually impaired. Released in 1990, it was controlled by voice and could, among other functions, automatically download articles from USA Today by a built-in modem. It was made by Transceptor Technologies of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The song contains samples from “Let the Words Flow” by Chill Rob G, “Love’s Gonna Get You” by Jocelyn Brown, and “King of the Beats” by Mantronix. The song received new popularity when it was adopted as the entrance music by professional arts player Phil Taylor, who was also nicknamed ‘The Power’.

Darts or dart-throwing is a competitive sport in which two or more players bare-handedly throw small sharp-pointed missiles known as darts at a round target known as a dartboard. Points can be scored by hitting specific marked areas of the board, though unlike in sports such as archery, these areas are distributed all across the board and do not follow a principle of points increasing towards the centre of the board. Though a number of similar games using various boards and rules exist, the term “darts” usually now refers to a standardised game involving a specific board design and set of rules. While being a professional shooting sport, darts is also a traditional pub game. Darts is commonly played in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, and recreationally enjoyed across the world.
