Per Gessle’s pop favorites

STOCKHOLM - In this month's Premiär magazine (a free magazine) Per gives us the recipe for a perfect pop CD. Many of these songs were featured on the pre-show CDs that were played before the "Sommar-Mazarin" concerts. As you may know it's usually Per who compiles Roxette's, Gyllene Tider's and now his own pre-show CDs. Per does this "…with a few bottles of wine and a stack of CDs…", according to himself.
