“Mazarin” climbs - in Norway

Written by tevensso on September 30, 2003 to .

OSLO (UPDATED) - Per’s successful concert and TV appearances in Norway seem to have paid off. “Mazarin” re-entered the charts last week and climbs from #23 to #6 this week. The album has spent five weeks on the Norwegian charts. This is the highest position a solo album by Per Gessle has reached in Norway so far. Previously, Marie Fredriksson’s greatest hits album, “Äntligen,” also reached #6 in the year 2000.

  In Sweden, “Mazarin” is still at #3. The first single, “Här kommer alla känslorna,” has climbed back to #6 from #7. At the same time, the second single, “På promenad genom stan,” has entered the chart at #20. But that’s not all: there’s also a cover version of the old Gyllene Tider hit “När vi två blir en” by Miio on the Swedish chart at #5.

  Editor’s note: The reason for moving “Mazarin” from #5 to #6 is that the sales of Sting’s new album was miscalculated due to the SACD version being counted by itself. When counted as one Sting overtook Per. TEV

Almost every Swede has this track on it’s copy of Mazarin already. And it still climbs the charts!!

I didn’t expect it to enter it anyway since there’s nothing really new on the single.

I think this cover by Miio sucks. The video is even worse. Who let them do this??? They are ridiculous and can’t sing. And two of Miss Piggy’s sisters don’t fit to this song.

#20 is really good, if you compare to Roxette in Sweden I think....

Will PPGS climb the charts in the coming weeks do you think? Rich-UK

What’s the b-side of “På promenad genom stan”? I haven’t seen anyone mention it.

@ anon: Yes, this is strange, it seems VG has changed the charts since this morning... Very weird. Well, I’ve changed the article accordingly.
