'Big Big World' is a 1998 song recorded by Emilia Rydberg. It was the first single from the album of the same name and was released in late 1998. Although it was a failure in the U.S. where it remained at the bottom of the Billboard Hot 100, the song was a great hit in many European countries where it was a top three hit. This single was a hit on U.S. radio and was very popular in the UK and reached No.5 in the UK Singles Charts in December 1998. The song was also featured on Now That's What I Call Music! 5 [Asia]. 'Big Big World' was also used in the Hong Kong television series, Detective Investigation Files IV. German techno group Scooter sampled 'Big Big World' on their single 'And No Matches', taken from the 2007 album 'Jumping All Over The World'.
