Something For The Pain
Translated by Erik (email@example.com)
"This was the toughest job of all. We rewrote this song no less than 10 times! The last time on request of John Kalodner, one of the Columbia Records big-shots. He just said: "Put some accordeon in there. And a twelve-string guitar" so we did that immediately, ha ha. Originally we ment this song to be in the seventies-legend T-Rex tradition, but now it sounds so unique that there is no trace of any of that influence left. Except of the influence of Kalodner that is. I had originally named the song "I've been Lovin' you too long to turn back now'" but John didn't like that at all. So it became 'Somethin' for the pain'. But other than that nothing but good about John!"
