Song information[edit]

"Salvation" is a ballad with instruments like acoustic guitars, piano, choir and drum machine. It was released around Christmas time, because it has a Christmas sound. The B-sides of "Salvation" single are "See Me" and "Crazy About You" (marked as Crash Boom Bang version not to be confused with the demo version from You Don't Understand Me single), both outtakes from Crash! Boom! Bang! album. The single includes also the video of "Stars".
