Little Miss Sorrow

Notas

Recorded for Have a Nice Day in 1998, but left off the album due to… whatever. Wax in the ears, maybe. It was something about the tempo that didn’t feel right the first time. But a replay during the research for this album immediately got the Rox headquarters up on its feet. A few quick fixes in the studio, and smiles were put on everybody’s faces. Who the sad girl is? Well, a Herman’s Hermits song with the name endeared a very young Per Gessle in the ’60s. “One day I’m going to write a song with a title like that”, he said. And after some 30 years, he did.

– The Pop Hits liner notes, 2003

Yep, another leftover from the HAVE A NICE DAY-sessions in Marbella, Spain. Can’t remember why this didn’t make the HAND-album, both Marie and I liked it a lot. I guess it was because HAND was growing REAL LONG. Sometimes you just have to kill your darlings. My lead vocals are taken from my original demo recorded at the T&A Studio in Halmstad. I think. Or… hmmm… no? Do you remember pls enlighten me! /P.

Roxette – Oorspronklike Weergawe 3:54

She had those magic eyes
You could see from miles around
She wore her summer-dresses bright
Quite like the sky
She always came in colors
All smiles and daffodils
She let her hair down in the breeze
But every little thing has changed today
Little miss sorrow

Every little thing turned pale and fading
Little miss sorrow

The sunlight doesn’t show
All the colors go
Out the through the window
She used to go out dancing
Cool silver fingernails
I used to watch her from the bar
Following her car
She always came in colors
She always kept control

She painted yesterday in gold
But every little thing turned grey
Little miss sorrow

Every little thing turned pale
And fading
Little miss sorrow

The sunlight doesn’t show
All the colors go
Even the rainbow

Allow me to introduce myself
I am just a local boy
She was my little miss joy
I want to call her name
My life won’t be the same
Dear god

Every little thing has changed
Little miss sorrow
Every little thing turned pale
And fading
Little miss sorrow
Every little thing turned grey
Today

The weak replace the strong
The bird forgot the song
What’s going on?
What’s going on?
What’s going on?
