Trivia:

Another one of her favorite songs was 'Look to Your Dreams, which, although written in 1974 at the request of Karen, was not recorded until 1978, it was stored in the vaults of A&M because Richard believed it not to be commercially successful. In 1983, following the death of Karen, the song was finally completed and released on the "Voice of the Heart" album in October 1983. See more »
