We reached the second to last show on this tour so fast. Unbelievable! In Oslo we found the longest queue waiting for the doors to be opened at the venue.

Per’s 60 for 60. #58. When I Close My Eyes (No One Can See Me). This little gem was released by Norwegian singer Paris, under the name “I Do Believe.” It was in fact also called “I Do Believe” on the “The Look for Roxette” promo release as well. Another sad song, introspective, wondering. This T&A demo is from the summer of 1999 and is featured in the Per Gessle Archives. Quite possibly this was meant for “Room Service.” Paris’s version was out in 2002, and it’s very similar to Per’s demo. Something woke me up/In the middle of the night/I never ever felt so lonely/I thought about givin’ you a call/But it was half past five… We know the feeling well. Have you heard both, and if so, which version do you prefer?
