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?


When I Close My Eyes (No One Can See Me)

Per's 60 for 60. This is #58 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Per Gessle's career.

This random guy came by and started signing stuff while we were waiting for Per... ;)


Cold November rain didn't stop Per and his band visiting Helsinki. Read our report here!


Per and his tour visit rainy Helsinki

HELSINKI - Per Gessle had brought his band to Helsinki, Finland, in the most miserable November weather you can imagine. The concert was originally planned to a larger arena in the neighbouring city of Espoo, but moved and re-scheduled to Kulttuuritalo (Culture House) in the capital.

Per's 60 for 60. #59 Min plats. (My Place) A recent song, from last year's album "En vacker natt," the album opener even. It was also featured as "There's a Place" on this year's "Small Town Talk." A cute little ditty, as Per would've described it. A happy song about one's happy place. The lyrics in English are actually quite similar to the Swedish ones. Maybe the Swedish lyrics are a bit more positive longing for that special place where you can rest and hide and love, while the English are more longing for something missing in life? Do you have a special place, what does it look like? #per60

Per's 60 for 60. #60 Rädd. (Afraid) Alright, here we go! We hope you are as excited as we are. Here's the first song which is from the self-titled album Per Gessle released in 1983. Some of you may have heard this story already. The rest of Gyllene Tider was drafted into the army, but Per having "psychological problems" managed to duck. Instead he recorded his first "adult" album. Per doesn't mention this song in his lyrics book so there's no backstory to it. But reading the lyrics it's a standard Per song about a couple having relationship problems: She took the phone/and called a number/to another voice/she was hoping would understand/Wanted to listen/wanted to know one minute/of a long long life... The poor couple is scared. Their lives are shaken to the core. Afraid to feel/afraid to doubt/afraid to live/afraid to die/afraid to listen/afraid to think/afraid to wake up/afraid to plant a seed Seemingly they don't know what to do anymore. Who sings this song together with Per? #per60

Small Town Talk in Linköping.


Yes, it's this time of the year! Expect us to be really DAILY again for the next couple of months. We're starting "Per Gessle's 60 for 60" tomorrow. It comes for free so why not visit us every day (much easier when you subscribe us by the way) and see which of Per's songs we like most and especially why. What do you think will be the Top 3? One thing I can tell: I was rather surprised, hmmmm... /K #per60 Per Gessle’s “60 for 60” #per60 It’s Per’s 60th birthday soon so we came up with a most splendid idea. You’ll love this. Again!

Helsinki check! It was great evening, a smallish and tough crowd but Per managed to win them over in the end! More to follow.


Concert starting soon in dark, cold and rainy Helsinki. Shine your light, Per!

Whatcha gonna tell your mother?


We certainly had fun in Linköping! Helsinki tonight!


SAAB Arena was conquered

LINKÖPING - It was a cold, dark and dreary night, outside. Inside was a totally different melody! Inside the SAAB Arena there was this little pop orchestra setting up shop.

One of our readers saw Moscow!


Per rocks Mockba

MOSCOW - The concert in Moscow took place in Crocus City Hall. It seems that musicians and organizers like the cooperation, since all Moscow concerts since 2011 are held here.

It's Xmas soon, here's our little Drummer Boy!


Because it's night here in the TDR headquarters, we switch off the lights and play a neat dance track for you. Totally unrelated to Roxette or similar projects of course. ;) /K

The winners of the meet & greet contest

TDR presents, in cooperation with Live Nation and Dimberg Jernberg Management, a meet & greet with Per Gessle.

Small Town Talk, something someone who hasn't lived in a small town can really grasp. The gossip, the bs.


The Prof is in the house. The Prof was in middle school when Roxette recorded Crash!Boom!Bang!. Or so he says...


Helena & Per at the Waterfront. Karlstad next. Don't forget to enter our contest to win one of 10 meet & greet spots WITH TICKETS INCLUDED for Linköping on Saturday. Last day to enter is tomorrow. Details on our website.


Our review from last night!


Per Gessle's Roxette hits Per's second home town

STOCKHOLM - The Waterfront Congress Center. Per with band hits his second home town, and with force! The Crown Princess Victoria with husband Prince Daniel were both there.

The Look! It was a good show last night, in Stockholm. The band was on its toes. Review and more photos to follow, at least a few since the photo position wasn't optimal yesterday.


Thank you and good nite Stockholm! It was a blast. More tomorrow.


I hate to say I'm glad you called

This is Per charging up Chris right before his solo outburst in "Doesn't Make Sense". Have you noticed this procedure? Chris is seeking eye contact with Per, Per then looks deep into his eyes for several seconds, sometimes repeatedly a few times, until Chris is starting to blend into his other stage personality. Watch it next time you see a show or on Youtube, it will give you goosebumps! /K


Today, you'll need to look closer. This is when Magnus during the band presentation claims to be the entire 1990s. Also he was born in 1991, he says. Just look at these faces. It's hilarious. /K


Per Gessle's Roxette was in Hamburg, too! /K


"Shine a light" or what's your best guess? Photo from Warsaw /K
