Biography

Spring 1988. Two years ago Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle had formed Roxette with the ambition to conquer the world and have a lot of fun along the way. They had kick-started their career with a string of energetic hit singles like “Neverending Love”, “Soul Deep” and “I Call Your Name”. Their debut album “Pearls Of Passion” was a multi-platinum ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth owning! July 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sweden seems to be a very quiet country. Once in a while a lot of noise comes out of it that eventually fades away years later but leaves a permanent emotional mark. In the 70's, they gave us ABBA, and in the late 80's and well into the 90's, Roxette was a worldwide sensation.

Comprising of two members, the voice Marie Fredriksson (vocals) and the mind Per Gessle (songwriter, guitarist, sometimes vocals), together this pair produced a string of chartbreaking hits on both sides of the Atlantic, and instant classics.

All the wonderful songs are included in this must-have compilation: the major US number one hit singles It Must Have Been Love (from the Pretty Woman soundtrack), The Look (their first big break in North America), and Listen To Your Heart (a beautiful chart topping ballad). The album also includes the power ballads Spending My Time, and Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave), the mindblowing Vulnerable (featuring Per Gessle on lead vocals) , Almost Unreal (from the box office flop Super Mario Bros), Crash Boom Bang, and the fun pop tunes How Do You Do? and Joyride. The album also features four newer songs as of 1995 including the irresistably good You Don't Understand Me and the Beatlesque hippy tune June Afternoon.

Don't Bore Us, Get To The Chorus is a perfect substitute for most of the Roxette collection of albums.

Definitely worth owning!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! December 11, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This CD has all their hits and a few new tracks, and is filled with the bouncy energy that characterizes most of their songs. Their debut smash "The Look", the funky "Joyride", and the hard-drivin' "Sleeping In My Car" are all here.
But Roxette's slow songs are also excellent, highlighted by The Pretty Woman single "It Must Have Been Love", one of my favourite ballads of all time. Also here are "Listen To Your Heart", "Spending My Time", "Crash, Boom, Bang", and "Dangerous".
Finally, the new releases here are also very good, in particular "June Afternoon", a funky opening track that makes me want to jump in the car and go roaring off into the summer with the top pulled down, and "You Don't Understand Me", a mellow tune that speaks of the gulf that often exists between the sexes. Nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars The United States really missed something wonderful here November 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I remember first seeing Roxette on MTV back in the 80's (when MTV was good and actually played music videos) and I flipped over "The Look" and "Joyride". I had cassette singles of these songs and that's all I had from Roxette until I went on a search for a compilation. Well, I looked everywhere and could not find what I wanted. There's not a good compilation for them in the U.S.! I finally ran across this CD and am I ever glad I did. What a package this one is. This is one of my favorite CDs and I have over 1,000.

I just wish they were better known in this country (U.S.) as they are truly fantastic. The United States really missed out on something great here. Even so, most people should recognize "It Must Have Been Love" from the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack. I wasn't aware of it until getting this disc and it was a nice surprise-------I KNEW THAT SONG! There is not one bad song on here. This disc is a true "mood lifter" if there ever was one.

This collection is well worth the money. Go for it! You know you want to.

Format:Audio CD
This sensational 18 track album contains all of Roxette's huge hits such as The Look, Joyride, Dressed for Success and It Must Have Been Love. If you've got the original albums you should still buy this one as most of the songs on here as the US single versions which are slightly different to the original album versions.
This CD has a pretty thick booklet inside the cover. It sort of has the lyrics for each song jammed together in a paragraph like reading a story. There is also another paragraph with each song some are commentaries of the songs by Per or Marie others by other people are about events of the time or the song in general. Pretty interesting reading.
The four previously unreleased tracks are brilliant as well and worth buying this album for alone. June Afternoon is a bright summer sounding happy modern song. You Don't Understand Me is also sensational slow paced but speeds up in parts to make it even more interesting. She Doesn't Live Here Anymore is another brilliant fast paced pop rock song about the singer's girl he loved who has moved away. The final previously unreleased song I Don't Want to get Hurt is a ballad which is okay to have playing in the background but not that great if actually consciously listening to the songs.
You know the rest but just in case you're a little young to remember or you've been kept prisoner in a dungeon somewhere during the late 80's and throughout the 90's and couldn't here a radio I'll tell you about them.
The Look is of course one of the greatest songs of all time. It used to be my favourite song was I was in primary school back in 1989 and I still love it. It's one of the only Roxette songs where Per, (the guy) is the lead singer.
