Per's 60 for 60. This is #12 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Per Gessle's career.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL YOU ROXERS OUT THERE! HAVE FUN TONITE! SEE Y'ALL NEXT YEAR! /P.


Per's 60 for 60. #13 Smakar på ett regn (Tasting a Rain). OK, here we are, the last song of the year. And a good song at that. The year? Not too shabby either. "Smakar" is from "Mazarin" and can be described as a Kent song. The Swedish pop band Kent that is. The harmonies and the production reeks Kent. One of the stories behind this song, can't vouch for its validity, goes like this: Per came tumbling down the stairs to the T&A studio asking if they had any Kent albums. They did not so MP went to the store and got some. Per got into the vocal booth and sat there for a few hours listening and writing. When he came out he had written this song. However, the story about this song in the book "Sketches" is not the same. Who know? #per60
