Thanx for listening to my new single ”The Finest Prize”. I wrote it in 2014 for Roxette’s Good Karma-album but we never recorded it. Then I translated it into Swedish two years later and it became ”Första pris”. Now, the original version is coming out of the closet. Me=Happy. Have a fab weekend y’all! /P.

DID YOU KNOW? 🤔 "The Finest Prize" was originally written for Roxette's "Good Karma" album, but Marie and Per never worked on it for several reasons. So even if the song came out first as "Första pris" in 2017, the "original" version is "The Finest Prize". ;) When translating it into Swedish, Per "tried to capture the same lyrical idea about a woman and a man living in their own universe. Content and strangely unaffected by life’s rewards". There are several English demos recorded at Tits & Ass. 🎶 Hopefully, we get to hear them one day. 🎶 /PP Listen to the song here: Info re "The Finest Prize" comes from the May 2017 RoxBlog interview with Mr. G:

Svenska Yle's audience chose the best summer songs. “Sommartider” by Gyllene Tider is the winner! 🎶🌞🎶 Per tells the song was ordered by the record company and he finds it difficult to write songs on order. If you listen to other tracks on the album, “Puls”, you can hear that all other songs are much different vs. “Sommartider”. It’s incredible that this song is still around since 1982. Per says summer is sacred in a way. In the North it’s so short and the most important season so you simply have to try and take advantage of it. 🌞 /PP

HERE COMES THE DVD!!!! A great evening to remember and cherish! /P.
