Kim about 'Real Life'

Life should be like a wonderful book, full of unusual chapters, characters, challenges, and of course love. Honesty, romance and poetry - these are three of my favorite words. (1)

When I was working with Freddy and Anders, up in Stockholm, they played me this song and I fell in love with it. What a beautiful song. A joy to sing. It had been recorded before and I just said 'we've got to record this, this is a beautiful song'. (2)
