Lessmann states, “‘Take My Heart And Run’ is the very first song Michael and I ever wrote together, shortly after the »Point Blank« tour. I still have very good memories of that time: we’ve had an awesome time on tour and then we found out that the chemistry between us, when writing together, was just perfect – and it still is. We were especially proud when [Reinhold] Mack [producer of QUEEN, ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA etc.] told us that he’s pretty excited about the track too. I still love this song a lot and I hope you like it too!”

Adds Voss, “I’ll never forget our recordings for this song in my children’s room that took place in 1990 I guess. I still lived at my parents’ home at that time. We used a Tascam 244 4-track cassette recorder and somehow synchronized it with a Korg M1 synthesizer. From the beginning, the song just got together easily… It was and remains one of my all-time favourites from this era and was produced by the aforementioned powerful sound wizard Mack. This tune includes all most important elements for a major hit single: love, pain and harmony.”
