Per’s 60 for 60. #60 Rädd. (Afraid) Alright, here we go! We hope you are as excited as we are. Here’s the first song which is from the self-titled album Per Gessle released in 1983. Some of you may have heard this story already. The rest of Gyllene Tider was drafted into the army, but Per having “psychological problems” managed to duck. Instead he recorded his first “adult” album. Per doesn’t mention this song in his lyrics book so there’s no backstory to it. But reading the lyrics it’s a standard Per song about a couple having relationship problems: She took the phone/and called a number/to another voice/she was hoping would understand/Wanted to listen/wanted to know one minute/of a long long life… The poor couple is scared. Their lives are shaken to the core. Afraid to feel/afraid to doubt/afraid to live/afraid to die/afraid to listen/afraid to think/afraid to wake up/afraid to plant a seed Seemingly they don’t know what to do anymore. Who sings this song together with Per? #per60
