Written by roxeteer on July 29, 2004 to .

STOCKHOLM - Expressen has gotten hold of the three CDs that are played before and after each Gyllene Tider concert. It is a known fact that Per selects the pause music very carefully.

And one song by Sandy Mouche too... *smile* Not that surprising really.

small faces rule :D it always makes me smile when i hear that before the shows :)

Romantics: Talking in your sleep @ aaaahh... from the mid 80´s, great track.

And here’s a task for all hardcore fans:
Go out and buy all the CDs with those songs on it.
Try to find every different version that has been published of each of the songs.


sandy mouche! wahey! :o) but he has left out bandstarter by brainpool this time... too bad!

Didn’t they play “Monkees”? It seems to me that Per’s vocal is greatly influenced by “Monkees”.

From this list my favourites are 99 lutfballoons & The Clash Should I Stay Or Should I Go.

PS Stop teasing hardcore fans.

Lots of good stuff here. :)

I actaully also don’t know many of those songs. Maybe because ot my age. hehehehehehe

it’s a great way to discover ’new’ music. For instance The Undertones: they are way cool!!!!

I even didn’t knew this group.

I think it’s kinda strange to sit with the list.
