Per's 60 for 60. #27 Jo-Anna Says. Oh yes Jo-Anna says, and she says a lot. I'm thinking this is the same girl as in "Substitute" - a mean one. We've met Jo-Anna before, in the 1989 Gyllene Tider song (actually recorded in 1987) '"Jo-Anna farväl!" and to be frank, she wasn't very sympathetic back then either. A conniving little wench is what she is. Per though, still is a believer. She's almost his, just a little longer. The song itself is very Paul McCartney-esque (think "When I'm 64",) which is funny since Per is a Lennon fan. Good song, nice video and all in all a happy listen, unless you listen to the lyrics. This was, together with "C'mon" the first single from "Plumber." #per60

enjoy!

Per's 60 for 60. #28 I Have a Party in My Head (I Hope It Never Ends). Whoa, the master of long titles and brackets strikes again... Once again a song from "Son of a Plumber" and this particular one was performed during the fall tour with Malin-My and Helena on recorders. The lyrics and the title both sound like some bad trip on acid, but then again, who wouldn't want to have a party in one's head? I certainly wouldn't mind at all. "Party" was also featured in the motion picture "Small Apartments," both the normal one and an instrumental version. One does wonder what went thru Per's mind when he wrote this. "It's so beautiful and surreal." #per60

Guitarpick collection, part one. /P.


Per's 60 for 60. #29 Brilliant Career. We're talking the top half of the chart. We're talking Son of a Plumber again, and most of all we're talking about a song that's absolutely adorable! Lyrics wise it may not be a "The Look" or "Opportunity Nox," but the melody and the performance are aces. Listen to that flow! And Helena's "More tea, anyone?" is the icing on the cake. Again, a terribly lovely tune. #per60

Per's 60 for 60. #30 Mannen med gitarr (The Man with the Guitar.) Halftime! This is a demo from 2002, written for "Mazarin," and never used or released because Clarence hated it! It was however recorded by Monia Sjöström in 2003, with slightly different lyrics since she's obviously a girl. Per sings "Hey you with the guitar, play something I understand, something I think about. Maybe something about when I met her eyes the first time. I want to hear that song." But it was a long time ago. Is she gone or is she not? Is the song sad or not? Melancholy? We love it. (Not Stevo.) Hugs! #per60

Per's 60 for 60. #31 Födelsedag (Birthday). After just about half the list we crack open the wonderful album "Mazarin," named after a pastry they feasted on while recording the album. Per claims. Likely he's fibbing since in the dark woods of Skåne, where AGM is located, there are no mazarins... Anyway, the song "Födelsedag" is from this album and is special in a way that Per plays the bass on it. Why? According to Per he was "sitting the closest to the bass guitar" so there you go. Written in August, 2002 it certainly wasn't written on Per's B-day! "Here I am/Today it's my birthday" #per60

Jonas Isacsson (Roxette, Horizont) :: T.C Crew

Jonas Isacsson (Roxette, Horizont) 08.08.2017 21:28 Ända sedan slutet av 80-talet har Roxette varit ett av de största favoritbanden på T.C redaktionen och vi har alltid varit grymt imponerade av deras långhåriga gitarrist Jonas Isacsson. Därmed kör vi vidare på spåret med berömda gitarrist...

Per's 60 for 60. #32 Småstadsprat (Small Town Talk.) Here it is, the Swedish version of "Small Town Talk," this time with Lasse Winnerbäck as the duet partner. A very low-key, and again sad, song. The man fell in love with a girl, and she left. It's unclear if they ever were a couple or not. Like we mentioned a few weeks ago, this was also recorded in English with Nick Lowe. Small town gossip can really ruin things for you... If you want to play it on the geet: Capo 2. Verse D D A D G Em A Bm G A, chorus Em7 D A, solo Am Fmaj7 G6 Am Fmaj7 G #per60

Per's 60 for 60. #33 I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend. A Ramones cover, from 2002! It's rather common for Per and Gyllene, and even Roxette, to play covers from time to time. It's not as usual that the songs are recorded and released though. This story is kind of funny: A bunch of Swedish rock bands such as Hellacopters, Wilmer X and Backyard Babies decided to record a tribute album to The Ramones; The Song Ramones the Same. Per heard about this project and wanted in, so he recorded this little ditty and also "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" and "Gimme Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment." Only "Boyfriend" was included on the actual album. As a side note, "Gimme" includes the exact same guitar solo as "Opportunity Nox" performed by Per. #per60

Still going strong after 39 years! "Flickorna på TV2" was released today 40-1 years ago! 📺 The single was originally released with "Flickorna på TV2" as the B-side and "Himmel No. 7" as the A-side, but radios started playing the B-side and so a week later the single was re-issued as a double A-side. 📻 A1 - "Flickorna på TV2"; A2 - "Himmel No. 7". 🎶 Does it deserve to be celebrated next year? 🎶 #GT40? ✌ What do you think? 🤔 /PP Stills are from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKIebBaKWjs

39 years ago this little piece of vinyl was released. The band is still standing as one of Sweden's most successful ever. Nicely done, boys!
