DID YOU KNOW? ? “The Finest Prize” was originally written for Roxette’s “Good Karma” album, but Marie and Per never worked on it for several reasons. So even if the song came out first as “Första pris” in 2017, the “original” version is “The Finest Prize”. 😉 When translating it into Swedish, Per “tried to capture the same lyrical idea about a woman and a man living in their own universe. Content and strangely unaffected by life’s rewards”. There are several English demos recorded at Tits & Ass. ? Hopefully, we get to hear them one day. ? /PP
