Top Customer Reviews
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!
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.
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.Read more ›

Glad that Go Hastings had this album available. There are always songs that a music group will perform but it never seems to make into the mainstream of music listeners. Read morePublished on February 22, 2011 by T. Moore
