QUEEN OF RAIN. Talk about leftovers...... This was left out from the Joyride-album. We had decided to bring on Vicki Benckert for the Join the Joyride-world tour and she could play the accordion really well. MP and me had written this other ballad "Perfect Day" (featuring an accordion) so we chose that one as the closing number on Joyride instead of QOR. PD was to be an amazing last song to perform live. QOR, of course, became the closing song on "Tourism" + a single instead. Which one do you prefer? Tough choice for me.... /P.

LITTLE MISS SORROW. Yep, another leftover from the HAVE A NICE DAY-sessions in Marbella, Spain. Can't remember why this didn't make the HAND-album, both Marie and I liked it a lot. I guess it was because HAND was growing REAL LONG. Sometimes you just have to kill your darlings. My lead vocals are taken from my original demo recorded at the T&A Studio in Halmstad. I think. Or...hmmm...no? Do you remember pls enlighten me! /P.

Now this comes as a bit of a shocker - the version of Beating Heart released is not the version from the record! This is clearly a different mix.This mix is flatter and the lyrics are different, plus some harmonies are missing! https://itunes.apple.com/se/album/tidiga-tider-bonusl%C3%A5tar-och-alternativa-versioner-79-81/1454318809?l=en


Beating Heart - 'Modern Times' promo single

Beating Heart - 'Modern Times' promo single, a song by Gyllene Tider on Spotify


Supertrist att höra att Magnus Lindberg lämnat oss. Vi i Gyllene Tider lyssnade mycket på hans ”Som natt och dag”-LP när vi, kort senare, oväntat hamnade på samma speciella plats i konungariket Sverige, dvs det galanta skivbolaget EMI Svenska AB. Några år senare kom hans ”Röda läppar”-album. En svensk raket if u ask us!!!! Vi stötte på varann i parkerna ibland. ”Tiden bara rinner iväg”, sjöng han. Så sant. RIP Magnus. /GT

Happy B-day. Mats MP Persson, 60 today! Here's to many more! <3

The Heartland Cafe' väntade runt hörnet.



MAKIN' LOVE TO YOU. Yep, another leftover from HAVE A NICE DAY. We never really worked properly on this one. Marie and I only did a couple of guide vocals to get into the groove. Lots of ballads around at the time. Do you like it? /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.

En gång i tiden för länge , länge sedan i en galax far,far away 🤗 sökte ett popband en ”träningslokal” för att kunna repa och skapa musik tillsammans . Och här är vi nu 40+år senare..... Livet är finurligt och kul. Och i sommar blir det 40 års party ☀️🎉🥁🎸. Den såg man inte komma som 18 årig PoPidolswannabe🤗 #gt40 #gyllenetider #övninggerträning


Regarding the new Gyllene releases, we've talked to Per and Cosmos and they say that Tidiga Tider and Andra Tider will be available worldwide no later than after this weekend.


HAPPY TOGETHER. RoxBlog found this article. Thanks. Personally I wish we would've spent time on this track back in Marbella when we recorded Have A Nice Day. I thought it was a wonderful little gem but we had so many songs!!! What eventually was released (as the b-side of the Wish I Could Fly-single) is actually my T&A-demo with some Marie vocals added to it afterwards. MP is playing those great guitars. /P. https://thejewelerblog.wordpress.com/2019/02/22/music-friday-noncommittal-boyfriend-loses-the-prettiest-jewel-in-roxettes-happy-together/?fbclid=IwAR190hWE7B7CKBICL-c_IONHkz4y1sFeMEoSJvbkRAsusEKeBVdWyoHHgvk

Stumbled upon this one while preparing for the mighty double-LP release of Have A Nice Day. A very dear and special song to me since it was written for my (nowadays hipster-lookin') son. Beautiful soprano saxophone by the amazing Jonas Knutsson. Enjoy. I will! /P.


Roxette - I Was So Lucky

Roxette - Have a Nice Day

Oh yea! Cover version av "Regn"! Don't think I've heard it before. I do remember writing the English lyric to it way back for some reason.... There must be a demo of it somewhere in the drawer next to The Heartland Cafe'-outtakes! Aaah, the lazy hazy crazy days of the 80's. Thanks for digging it up, you Dailies. /P. Per 60 for 60 - Encore. Regn (Rain.) Taken from the self titled album "Per Gessle" released in 1983, recorded while the rest of the band did their tour in the army. Also recorded in English, called "Run to Me" but never released by Per. Christopher Barker, a German American, released it on his 2000 album "One Moment in Time" however. The lyrics are very typical Per, about a couple in love. "Sitting by the window looking up/but all I see is rainclouds/your eyes today have the color of yesterday's sky/and tell me/what would I have had/without all the energy/that you give/and I take? #100 on our chart.
