Quotations and trivia

  • Sonja Kristina on Norma Tager, who wrote the lyrics for many of the songs on Midnight Wire:

"She and I became very close. I was very depressed over the breakup of my marriage, and that's why she wrote for me. She'd been a writer and had ghost-written things, screenplays, things like that. And you know sometimes when you're low you don't want to write, you're so miserable. So we wrote songs together. She wrote what I wanted to sing about, and I taught her how to put things into song form. So they were her lyrics, but the essence came from both of us."
