The Popdust Files: 00s one-hit wonders, alice deejay

#10 Alice Deejay, “Better Off Alone”

What It Was: A pop-trance classic with maybe the catchiest synth riff in the history of catchy synth riffs. There weren’t a ton of lyrics—the main cry of “Do you think you’re beeeettter off aloooone?” was just about the crux of it—but that undeniable synth riff provided just about all the juice the song would need, and it became a worldwide crossover hit.

What Happened Next: Alice Deejay—who, by the way, wasn’t the name of the woman singing on the song, but rather the moniker for the Dutch dance collective, consisting of a couple producers, DJ Jurgen and lead singer Judith Anna Pronk—only existed for another year or two, scoring a couple further hits overseas (“Back in My Life,” “Will I Ever“) but never again making waves in the States.

Where Are They Now?: Pronk gave up on music to become a fashion consultant and makeup artist, and participated in the Dutch fashion reality competition Model in 1 Dag, and DJ Jurgen has a regular radio show on Fresh FM.
