La Bouche - 'Sweet Dreams'

She's dead:
'On the night of November 24, 2001, Melanie died in a plane crash of the Crossair Flight 3597 near Bassersdorf by Zurich in Switzerland.

She gave her final performance in Leipzig and then drove to Berlin where she took the ill-fated plane to Zurich for radio and TV appearances (among others, the broadcast "Die Bar" on TV3, which was canceled) to promote her new single Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming) and her album Ready To Fly (New Edition).

Wonderful Dream was a Christmas ballad recorded for a German Coca-Cola TV commercial.

Although Thornton's death occurred practically on the eve of that year's Christmas season, Coca Cola decided to stick with the commercial as planned.

It has also been used in Christmas Coca-Cola TV commercials in Germany, Ireland, UK, Belgium, The Netherlands, Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

The original commercial has been aired in Germany every year since 2001 around Christmas time, and the song has been in the German single charts every year since.'
