Per’s 60 for 60. #4 Being With You (the original 1997 demo). As you may know this was finally released on “Small Town Talk,” this is however how Per planned it to sound in the beginning. A Tom Petty-esque song with 12-string guitar. Per comments: “Some songs never get finished. ‘Being With You’ is one of those. I’ve made several demos of it and fooled around with different intros, verses and keys, but for so many reasons it never came across the way I wanted it to. This first take was made in September 1997 when it was really fresh and written for ‘Have a Nice Day,’ built on a 12-string guitar strumming. Then I had another go in 2004 which felt much better, but it was still left out in the cold when the SOAP project got going in 2005. I like it a lot so… third time’s the charm?” Noteable is that the 2004 demo lacks a verse. Top 3 left… #per60
