With nearly 50 million sold sound carriers is Roxette the second most successful musical export from Sweden, of course behind the unapproachable ABBA. The two band members, singer Marie Fredriksson and guitarist/singer Per Gessle, were in their own country for celebrities when they started in 1986 with Roxette. Per played in the Swedish-speaking rock band Gyllene Tider and Marie was active as a solo artist. The break-through came with Look Sharp! (1988), an album that was full of feel-good rock songs that are good at hearing layers. The greoep scores both hits with rock songs (The Look, Joyride) as with immersive ballads (Listen To Your Heart and It Must Have Been Love). The Group was also in America four times at number-1, something even ABBA never did. In 2002, the group forced a break, because Fredriksson has a tumor. The singer heals, but both members focus on solo projects. In 2009 the group back together for a Night Of The Proms-tour and an album with new songs.
