The Big L.

Notas

Per: Bubblegum time again, written in the spring of 1990 for the Joyride-album. Big single in Europe, never released in the US. Marie: I was a bit sceptical in the beginning, but we changed the key in the chorus and there it was. Per: We arranged it as a kind of dance tune, like “Dangerous”, using sequencers and so on. Today I would have made it more like “She Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” – a quick rehearsal, tune up the guitars and go. A garage tune should have a garage sound. Marie: Once again a very Gessle-ish song. Per: Kinky guitar riff, instant chorus, the sun is out, bring the beer.

– Don’t Bore Us – Get to the Chorus! liner notes, 1995

“The Look” having boosted Per’s confidence as a singer, this duet neatly employed the newly discovered magic of modulation to make his and Marie’s voices fit together despite their differences in range. Jonas Isacsson’s talent for carving out quirky George Harrison-inspired guitar intros was by now used to full effect.

– The Pop Hits liner notes, 2003

She’s the top she’s got the world on a string
She makes me boogie makes me do anything yeah yeah
Hey now touch the sky
You’ve got a certain kind of look in your eyes
Well she’s a miracle she’s all that I need
Like the water and the air that I breathe yeah yeah
Hey now reach the sky
There’s a certain kind of look in your smile
And I know what love can do
Yes I know what hearts can do

The big love is taking the wheel
The big love goes head over heels
The big lust bring it into a small world
The bigger the better
Big love waiting to catch the big one
Head over heels
The big one bring it into the small world
I’m building the big big love
I’m building the big big love

It’s kinda strange a bit mysterious
I got to take it oh so so serious
Hey now touch the sky
You’ve got a certain kind of look in your eyes
It used to be so hard so lonely at night
Well she’s my baby and I’m feeling alright
Hey now move the sky
There’s a certain kind of look in that smile
When I’m making love with her
When I’m making love to her yeah

The big love is taking the wheel
The big love goes head over heels
The big lust – bring it into a small world
The bigger – the better
Big love – waiting to catch the big one
Head over heels
The big one – bring it into the small world
I’m building the big big love
I’m building the big big love

It has to be a big thing
It’s bringing me to my knees
Has to be a big thing big thing
Ya know what I’m saying…
