|Interview mit HAREM SCAREM|
Hellfire-Franky: Can you tell when you write a song if it's going to be a # 1 hit?
Harry Hess, Harem Scarem: You definitely get a feeling about certain songs and their potential as far as radio is concerned. There seems to be a pretty narrow window of what works well on certain formats so when you have a great song and it fits into those specific boundaries the sky is the limit.
