#TURMVLG 18: You Don't Understand Me. (Director: Gregg Masuak, Producer: Phil Barnes, 1995): Beautiful and arty, this video - but where was it made? Well, there was confusion to begin with. In the TDR archives, we found "New Forest National Park, UK". To double-check we asked the one member of our team that lives closest to this spot (we won't give away his name here but it's Paul) and he insisted that it must have been Dartmoor. Good, so we asked Per who instantly replied th...at they made the video in France. Oh, and he wondered if he was even there in person. We checked the video and it turned out he actually was present, at least for a second, in the background. Next one to ask was the director, a really funny guy named Gregg Masuak and here's what he said: "I actually don’t recall myself as it was one of the very few videos I did that I was literally taken from the airplane from Los Angeles where I was, shoved in a car and driven to the location. It was actually torrential freezing rain the entire two days shoot, the wettest, bleakest physical experience I’d had - despite its immense creativity and good vibes!". But he also promised to get the information we needed. So he asked the producer, Phil Barnes, who seems to be a well organized chap and confirmed that it was indeed the New Forest NP. Still which spot exactly, remains unclear unless someone here in the audience knows the area well enough to point us to the precise location. Update: Trinkerry Samba found the spot: " It’s a place called ‘Ashley walk’ or ‘snake road’ in the New Forest, Hampshire, England." Thank you!

”How can you be prepared when you lose a family member?” – Kirsten Ohlwein on Marie Fredriksson

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/

Ahhh memories! (Gyllene Tider in Ronneby 2019) /K Are you always to be found in the first row or rather in the center of the crowd?

Latest from Per: "New tough Gyllene Tider compilation with hits and unreleased material in the can folks! PS. And the live album from this summer will be fab. A nice little band..."

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/

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

GT40 for 40. #39 Vanliga saker (Regular Things): Taken from Gyllene Tider​'s last album, Samma skrot och korn, this was performed the first two concerts in Halmstad. After that it was cut and replaced, unfortunately. A rocky piece, with good lyrics, but an even better melody. It has a sweet Farfisa riff which we love of course! She came from space/And said it was us/I wanted to break the code/So I mumbled "Come inside"/I swayed my Strat/Peaked my pulse/So on my mother's street/She fell, tired/I sang about regular things #gt40for40 http://www.dailyroxette.com/vanliga-saker/
