Roxette

Profile:
Swedish pop duo, formed in 1986 in Halmstad by Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson.

The group enjoyed worldwide success from the late 1980s until the mid-1990s, gaining nineteen UK Top 40 hits and four US #1 singles with, "The Look", "Listen to Your Heart", "It Must Have Been Love" and "Joyride". Two further singles "Dangerous" and "Fading Like a Flower" hit #2. Finally, "Dressed for Success" was a modest hit in the US peaking at #14.

After a hiatus in the mid-1990s, their popularity continued in other territories such as Europe and South America, where they earned various Gold and Platinum awards until the beginning of the new millennium. In 2002 the duo took a break from recording and touring when Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumour. In 2009 Roxette took to the stage together again for the first time in 8 years, during Gessle's European Party Crasher tour.

Their songs continue to receive radio airplay, with "It Must Have Been Love" and "Listen to Your Heart" both recently receiving awards from BMI for achieving four million radio plays. They have sold an estimated 60 million records worldwide, with over 3.5 million record sales in the United States, achieving platinum for Joyride and Look Sharp! there.

RIP Marie Fredriksson. Passed away 9.12.2019 after being ill for quite some time. Another one lost too soon and too young. Thoughts with her family and close friends x

Strange that the album "Look Sharp" was released in 1988, and the single "Look" in 1989?

I have been hoping to find the Gyllene Tider 45 as Roxette on US pressing stock copy with Can I Touch You flip side on Capitol 5380 released in 1984 from the "Heartland Café" EP. I regret never having the chance to see Roxette live in concert other than the awesome shows I have on DVD. Being there in person is a whole another dimension. Wishing you health and wellness, Marie Fredriksson and best wishes as well to Per Gessle :-)
