GT40 – Live! – the review
Here we go, the final(?) live album. Gyllene's fourth live album. Forty years and four live albums, not too bad.

Farväl och tack Gyllene Tider!
As we prepare to launch our GT40 for 40 countdown, Paul says thanks to the 5 guys from the Swedish West Coast!

Per Gessle: GT50? Sounds like an old single malt…
The Daily Roxette: Hej there Per, first of all congratulations to this, again, very successful tour.

HALMSTAD - What more can you say about this truly amazing ride? It's been a joyride compared to nothing else. Not really talking about the 40 years here, even if that fits too.

GT 40 for 40. #32 Vid hennes sida (By Her Side): In June 2019 Gyllene's final album was released - "Samma skrot och korn." This song is from there, a typical Per penned, acoustic love ballad, and then again not. Hard to put the finger on it, but we like it a lot. The lyrics contains gems such as "Every day is a totally different day." Performed by MP and Per on the acoustic guitars with Fritte carefully fondling the Farfisa in the background. Anders is also there with his seriously complex programming. Her eyes smiled, I said I was from town/Maybe I bent the truth a little and acted a little dumb/But all I wanted was to walk by her side for a while... #gt40for40 http://www.dailyroxette.com/vid-hennes-sida/

GT40 for 40. #37 Du är en gangster, älskling! (You are a Gangster, Honey!): Per: “The legendary tape was finally found after being MIA for 13 years! Was recorded for the "Puls" album but was left off and is some sort of tour homage with Niklas Strömstedt whispering in the background. I play the harmonica they say. It’s called humor!” Micke: “Almost the same beat as on ‘Puls’ and ‘Teena.’ I listened a lot to Max Weinberg (E-Street Band.) He’s a snappy guy…” Anders: The tape was found in the attic of EMI’s studio, at the bottom of a pile of archived crap. I wonder how it ended up there?” It was finally released on "Halmstads pärlor" in 1995. It may not be a top 40 song and quite unknown, but it's got a certain cuteness to it and that made our hearts melt! The lyrics seem to have to be written during the '81 summer tour. #gt40for40 http://www.dailyroxette.com/du-ar-en-gangster-alskling/


Du är en gangster, älskling!

GT40 for 40. This is #37 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Gyllene Tider's career.

If you're using Spotify..... check out my playlist of favourite songs. EASY LISTENING BY PG. I originally made it for Hotel Tylösand but realized it was too good not to spread around in this day and age. I update it all the time. And yes yes, I know, too many songs. Can't help myself... Cheers, P.

Hey, it's Sunday. Time for a ballad, don't u think? This one I totally forgot about. Can't even remember to which album we recorded it!!! Do you know? Maybe the info is in some liner notes somewhere..... However, it's not that bad... We never liked it very much for some reason that's hidden in the shadows! /P.


Roxette - Making Love To You

Sorry for the quality cause I'm still learning how to make videos.... lol This is a wonderfoul Roxette's song that touch deep in my heart.

GT40 for 40 #38 Kärleken är inte blind (Men ganska närsynt) Love isn't Blind (But Pretty Nearsighted) taken from Gyllene's sophomore album Moderna Tider, but was before that the B-side of the 16-weeks-as-#1-single "När vi två blir en." Niklas Strömstedt came up with the title of course. The song has never been performed live, which is kind of sad, since it would've kicked some serious butt. Love came/one afternoon/I was walkin'/along the city's only promenade/Old girlfriends, mistresses/came as from heaven/a parade of angels/But it was someone else/I saw there/someone I've been long keen on/I fell off my sidewalk... #gt40for40
