those strings are actually played by session musicians from stockholm, arranged and conducted by janson and janson.
sometimes, i really like listening to pop music (amongst, of course, a lot of other stuff). it\'s good to hear what type of production an unlimited budget will get you, and to pick up any new *tricks* people are using. if you use them cleverly, they don\'t sound so *gimmicky.* plus, i\'m not always in the mood for all that *pure emotion crap*. heheheheheh
\"Should we put strings here?\"
\"Sure, why not?\"
\"Let me tell my assistant to book some players at this really cool studio in stockholm....it\'s only $800/hour* \"
\"Ok, what if we don\'t like them...why don\'t we ask one of the talented composers at Northern Forum to mock it up before we spend all that money\"
\"Nahhhhhhh....who cares? jive Records will pay for it!\"
\"Yeah, you\'re right, the budget for this record is not even half of the one for the video\"
*Studio fee does not include musicians, engineer, assistant engineer, mic rental, catering and of course, clean up.
