Per’s 60 for 60. #5 Tycker om när du tar på mej (I Like It When You’re Touching Me). Badabam! The top 5 and the 3rd “Mazarin” song in a row! Another killer track. One of Per’s favorites, as well as wife Åsa’s. Gabriel wasn’t too keen on “I like your breasts in the morning light” but hey… This is what Per has to say about it: “‘Tycker om…’ was born October 1st in 2002. It had a very special vibe throughout the whole writing process. It’s very rare. Great guitar-riff, a classic but wonderful chorus, quite personal lyrics. It all made sense. Also, it was the first song we recorded for ‘Mazarin’ and it took forever. I think we did six or seven versions and arrangements before I was happy and could sleep properly. We spent two weeks on this song alone. Clarence and Christoffer wanted to kill me. I think they tried to put poison in my food. But it was worth it.” It certainly was. Chris also commented in one of our interviews a few years ago that Per was not happy with the first six versions of it. “You’re ruining my favorite song!!” Oh well, it turned out more than fine! #per60
