Song recorded in the summer of 2002 by Kim Wilde with German star Nena. The song was originally written by Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen & Carlo Karges and recorded as “Irgendwie, irgendwo, irgendwann” by Nena near the end of 1984 as a single in Germany. It was featured on Nena’s third studio album “Feuer und Flamme” which was released on June 25, 1985.

The original English version of this track titled “Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime” was never released as a single, yet included on the English version of the “Feuer und Flamme” album titled “It’s All in the Game” released on November 11, 1985.

For Nena’s 2002 album “Nena feat. Nena”, celebrating her 20 years as a recording artist, she recorded a new version with Kim Wilde. The English lyrics were wriiten by Dalbello. It was subsequently released as a single in May 2003. It became a top 10 hit in Austria, Germany and the Netherlands.
