''Our most complicated production for 'Be Yourself Tonight' was ''There Must Be An Angel''. This track has the kitchen sink in it, even though we were still on a eight-track recorder. Olle played the synth drums. Dean on bass. Annie and I played keyboards; then we decided we would have an opera singer and a gospel choir and an orchestra and we wanted a real harp player. Annie said: ''This could be great for Stevie Wonder''. - Dave Stewart
"Finally Stevie Wonder showed up, and he was really an adorable person. He had these braids on his hair with beautiful gold beads, and when he plays he shakes his head so the beads make a loud noise. But his assistant, who takes care of him, took out this beanbag thing and gently tied Stevie's hair into it so it didn't make a sound down the mikes. The man is a supreme musician, worth waiting for." - Annie Lennox
For this show ('Pavarotti & Friends') all duets are tiring and hard to reharse. But the most difficult duet for me is the one with Eurythmics and their song ''There Must Be An Angel''. - Luciano Pavarotti
