Listen to these guys discussing 'Stars'. In their podcast they discuss 2 songs which flopped in the UK and discuss which one they want to 'unflop'. This time it's Roxette's turn. They start discussing Roxette at around 22 mins. I am the 'Neil' that is talked about as I went to school with Stuart.

Interesting electric hairdo from 1991! Have a fab weekend y'all! /P.

Favourite records + favourite scarf + favourite hairspray within reach. A perfect day at the office Torsgatan 9, Halmstad in 1989. /P.

Another hint: Some people ask if this is going to be a Best Of album. Hmmm. Let me put it like this: Many years ago there were times when we (TDR) didn't dare walking home alone in the dark when Roxette were going to release yet another Greatest Hits album. Well, I guess some of us can sing somehow (not overly sure though) but hey, we like you so we would never hurt you. And does this really look like a CD sleeve? Come on... :)

Per's 60 for 60. #43 Kix. We return to "The World According to Gessle," a world that's full of adventure. "Kix" was a single as well and was released June 23 1997. The video was once again directed by Jonas Åkerlund and was banned from MTV due to a gay couple kissing in it. There was a maxi CD released, with two remixes aptly named "Lovely Pair Mix" and "Horribly Pear Shaped Mix." Funny huh? It was even released as a double single in the UK! Our previous chart song "Love Doesn't Live Here" was the B-side. "Kix" features a fat synth bass and doesn't really fit in with the other songs on the album but it's a more than decent track, which #43 out of 60 proves! #per60


This is #43 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Per Gessle's career.
