Marie: I wrote eight or nine songs. We recorded three and then two made it on the album. One day I just had this title, “Waiting for the Rain”, and wrote the song in five minutes. Per: I’ve been at you over the years for not writing enough uptempo-songs. But the first five songs you came up with was uptempo-songs – and that was before you wrote “Waiting for the Rain”. So I don’t think it’s five minutes of inspiration. It’s a process. Marie: Yeah, I write my songs on the piano – and they tend to be ballads. But I got a kick when we were recording in Spain. At home, with the kids, I find it hard to get the peace to concentrate on songwriting. Per: The more kids you get, the faster songs you write. They’re done quicker. Marie: Probably. Per: Beside that, there’s more “na-na-na’s” here than in “Na-Na-Na-Na (Kiss Him Goodbye)”. So that should qualify us to the Guinness Book of Records. If they accept that as a world record.
