Per Gessle 60 for 60 ENCORE. Galning (Maniac). #73 on our chart. Really a Gyllene Tider song recorded for the scrapped album GT V, Per used it as the lead single off “Scener” in 1985 instead. The song is also recorded, but never released, in English under the name “Pyromaniac.” Noteable is that the album version is 15-20 sec shorter than the single version. Supposedly that would be called a radio edit in contemporary lingo, one normally doesn’t put that on the album though… The lyrics are about a crazy person, a maniac if you will, walking around the streets looking for a heart to set on fire. The English lyrics, not written by Per but Caj Högberg, are similar.
