>#mCD# Danielle Pfiffner // Bright eyes (Mike Batt)
1) - radio edit
2) - Pittsburg club mix
3) - original evening mix

Western People, Wednesday, October 30, 2002 ...
Born in London, of Swiss descent, Danielle Pfiffner is better recognised as the vocal sound of energetic UK-based group "Dance To Tipperary". Now she releases her own solo single, a dance rendition of the 1979 Art Garfunkel classic "Bright eyes", written for the animated film "Watership Down". The single launch coincides with the release of the new "Dance To Tipperary" album “The Singles Collection“, and a show by the band at The Ambassador, Dublin on 16th November.
"Dance To Tipperary" have created a distinctive fusion of dance music and traditional Irish, and the end product has attracted Scotland’s Celtic Football Club to become the group’s official sponsor!
