German singer Patty Ryan born May 6, 1961; was most remembered for the Eurodisco hit “You’re My Love, You’re My Life” from 1986.
From her debut album, Love is the Name of the Game, she also performed the classics “Stay With Me Tonight,” “Love is the Name of the Game,” and “I Don’t Wanna Lose You Tonight.”

Songs like You’re My Love, You’re My Life (You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul), I’m Feeling So Blue (There’s Too Much Blue In Missing You), and even Chinese Eyes are heavily influenced by the melodies from “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul” on her debut album. She also performed the song “Touch My Heart” by Danuta Lato.
Ryan got her start in the music industry with the rockabilly band Susi & Die Rockets, which also performed the song This House Is No Station (a German translation of Sweet Lolita from the British rockabilly band Matchbox) in the ZDF-Hitparade in 1981.
The most recent albums by Patty Ryan include the 2006 compilation All the Best (Otre-Media), the CD single “I Gave You All My Love” from 2005, and the German hits “Ohne Zweifel” and “Lass mir doch mal meinen Spass”.
