  • Otto is the credited writer on this track. He told about where he gets the ideas for his songs: "Most often, the ideas for songs come out of conversations with co-writers, but sometimes it's just a stream of consciousness. For example, 'Song Of The Violin' came like that - it was just a gift from God. My mom had asked me to write a special song for my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. For the longest time I couldn't write a word, and then suddenly it just poured out in like 20 minutes."
