Ricky about 'Amoureux des Rêves'
That was written years ago, a really old one, and Scarlett heard it, I'd given her a copy of the demo, and as we were coming up to do the album Scarlett said, 'have you thought about doing Dream Lover'? I'd actually totally forgotten the song. And then she sent me the copy that I'd sent her, I heard it and I thought 'yes, this could be really good'. She said 'It could be great for Kim! What are you talking about?' And of course she was right. (1)
