Per Gessle – Jupiter Calling

Demo, 3 August 1995

I woke up to a bang
So I rushed down to the level below
The city was asleep
So I ran upstairs for my radio

I couldn’t get it working, the batteries were down
But suddenly like thunder
Came this crazy
Cosmic sound

I heard Jupiter calling on the mysterious satellite
I heard Jupiter calling connecting into the night
I heard Jupiter calling and I saw the stars were falling
I heard Jupiter calling sending a message across to the Earth

I had to call a friend
So I begged you
Won’t you please come around?
No time to be afraid
Maybe you and me are the chosen ones

Let’s sit by the window in case we catch a light
A glowing information transmitting through the night

I heard Jupiter calling (ooh ooh ooh) on the mysterious satellite
I heard Jupiter calling (ooh ooh ooh) connecting into the night
I heard Jupiter calling and I saw all the stars came falling
I heard Jupiter calling (ooh ooh ooh) sending some messages down to the Earth

Jupiter calling (ooh ooh ooh) on the mysterious satellite
I heard Jupiter calling (ooh ooh ooh) connecting into the night
I heard Jupiter calling and I saw the stars were falling
I heard Jupiter calling (ooh ooh ooh) sending the message across to the Earth

Send a message across to the Earth!

Per: Hahaha! There are so many demos of this I’ve lost count. This one was made at the Tits & Ass Studio in August 1995 for no particular reason at all. I always liked this style of music. A little touch of the ’50s made into something else. There is a really sleazy demo of “Jupiter Calling” featuring a tenorsax! So glad you haven’t heard that one! Finnish band Leningrad Cowboys recorded this as well. Cheers!
