Written by daniel_alv on March 5, 2004 to .

STOCKHOLM - This week, “Tycker om när du tar på mej” climbed to #1 on the official Swedish radiochart (Music Control) after being #2 for three weeks in a row.

  “Här kommer alla känslorna,” the first single from “Mazarin,” also reached #1 on the chart while “På promenad genom stan” managed to climb to #2.

  Tomorrow, the popular Swedish radiochart show Svensktoppen is aired. Per is at #5 this week with “Här kommer alla känslorna” and has stayed around that position for several weeks now, while “Tycker om när du tar på mej” is at #2. That means that “Här kommer alla känslorna” has been on the charts for 39 weeks on Sunday, which gives Per a spot on the record list for Svensktoppen. He will enter the list of “longest runs on Svensktoppen” at #10 together with the Swedish singer Per Myberg’s hit “Trettifyran” (“This Ol’ House”) from 1964.

  If he stays on the list next week, he will share the #9 spot with the Brandsta City Släckers’ song “Kom och ta mej” (“Come and Take Me”), and the week after that he will have the #8 spot all by himself.

STOCKHOLM - This week “Här kommer alla känslorna” is still at #1 on Svensktoppen, a very long-running and popular show where listeners vote.

  This means that – with 18 weeks in a row now at the top – Per has entered Svensktoppen’s record list. He is now #5 together with Arvingarna on the list of longest-lasting #1s.

  As the song this week has nearly 200 points more than the one at #2, chances are Per Gessle will advance to #4 on the record list next week.
