Kim about 'Lucky guy'
Todd Rundgren. He's a brilliant songwriter. He really unfluenced me. I covered one of his songs once, which was my homage, but it ended up more fromage really. It was called Lucky Guy. Lucky Guy, unlucky song. At least I had a go. (1)
Sometimes you wonder why destiny ever took you to a place, or to a person. I discovered this when I was introduced to the genius of Todd Rundgren by an old boyfriend. If the only reason I ever dated him was to discover Todd's remarkable talent, then destiny did her job extremely well! I had recently moved to London, and set up a writing room/studio in my spare bedroom, analyzing his songs and recreating them in order to learn about the construction of song writing. I am still a huge Todd Rundgren fan and I recorded this as a tribute to his inspiring talent. (2)
