Erlend covers a song by Lee Hazlewood.
Mr. Hazlewood says in an interview featured in the booklet:
"I like it, 'cause I like the song. I don't know how many people wanted to write a lyric to this song in their language. And I wouldn't... Any other song they could have had, I've had a lot things translated into different languages, but I didn't want that one because I didn't think it made any sense because, you know, we're the ones with our ass getting kicked off in Vietnam and not anybody else. They played it a lot in Sweden 'cause I was there. And of course America did'nt play it because all these other better war writers than me had their songs out there. I didn't think it made very much sense for anybody else except an American wanting to go to Stockholm, 'cause there were quite a few American people who didn't care about that war living in Stockholm at the time. He fooled with the melody, but they all fool with the melody, I'm getting used to it. No, that doesn't bother me. It always bothers me a little more that they mess with the lyric than they mess with the melody. The real lyric in this song is "Freedom is where you think it is", not "what you think it is", but I kind of like 'what' so I don't complain at all about 'what' in this song. That little one word change doesn't bother me."
