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 Hungry For Some Good Pop Music? June 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
'The Pop Hits' is a compilation of most of Roxette international pop hits from 1988's 'The Look' to 2003's 'Opportunity Nox.'
1. Opportunity Nox - The first and only new single release from the compilation. Once again, I was blown away when I heard this one. This guitar-driven power-pop tune is, in my opinion, one of Roxette's best singles ever. Per takes lead vocals and Marie sings background.
2. The Look - The breakthrough hit. Perhaps the best song they ever did. I won't argue with that. It stands out today as much as it did when it topped almost every chart in 1989. A classic!
3. Dressed For Success (Chris Lord-Alge Mix) - This mix is the same as the 'U.S. Single Version' on the 'Don't Bore Us' compilations. The 2nd hit single in the USA, peaking at #14 in the summer of 1989. This is one of my favorite Marie vocal performances.
4. Dangerous (LP Version) - Whereas the 'Don't Bore Us' compilations included the 'Single Version' of this track, 'The Pop Hits' includes the original album version - which really stands out here due to the remastering. 'Dangerous' became the duo's 3rd US Top Ten hit, reaching #2 in early 1990.
5. Joyride (Single Edit) - Still a classic. Roxette's 4th #1 hit in the USA and #1 almost everywhere in 1991. Gotta love the whistling!
6. The Big L. - This was the 3rd single release pulled from the 'Joyride' album. It was never a single in the USA but that didn't stop it from becoming another hit for Roxette. A bit cheesy, but it's all about the chorus!
7. Church Of Your Heart - The 5th single release from the 'Joyride' album. Underrated classic, in my opinion. One of their best singles.

Yeah, I love Roxette. This has for eons now, it seems, been something considered deffenitely silly in Denmark, something you ought to be slightly ashamed of and deffinitely would keep to yourself if possible. Not that I can for the life of me understand why, considering what comes out of my speakers when I turn on my radio these days ...
This is then the pop hits collection, and I dare say that this must be labeled as an 'impossible to dislike' CD. I can't imagine anybody not being cheared up by listening to this music. And that's pop music at it's best.
Of course, all the hits are here ... 'The Look', 'Dressed For Succes', 'Joyride', 'Stars', 'The Centre Of The Heart' and just for the measure a couple of new songs as well, featuring the delighting 'Opportunity Nox' ... oh yes, Roxette rocks on.
Of course one will always have complaints regarding compilation CDs - personally I should have prefered the single mix of 'Dangerous' (as on the former compilation), but that's a minor detail; also I would have been delighted to have the single mix of 'Stars' included, since this was notably different from the album version (no children choir at all) - not that I dislike the album version, I think it's terrific, but I should have loved to have both versions.
Then there is the thing about left out songs. In this case I have two songs that I would have included, had I had any choice - though neither of these songs were released as singles (can someone explain me why?). This is 'Crush On You', the fantastic openor from Have A Nice Day, and 'Make My Head Go Pop' from Roomservice - both songs I think are among the very best pop songs from the Roxette factory. There is after all plenty of room left on the CD, that only runs for 55 minutes or so.
About the bonus EP ...

5.0 out of 5 stars What Roxette does best April 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This compilation album spans from "The Look" to "Room Service" and covers the pop, upbeat songs. Of the new tracks, "Opportunity Nox" seems to be destine to be another hit racked up for Marie and Per, and it would be a shame to miss "Little Miss Sorrow".

I serioulsy HATE and detest how so many people write off and put down/criticse Roxette. I think they are modern day masters as good as Lennon, McCartney, Dylan, Neil & Tim Finn, James Blunt, The Beatles, ABBA, Travis, Coldplay, David Gray, Crowded House & Split Enz. They were the first band I loved & first record I bought. This CD is the best! It spurred on my materialistic streak & consumeristic collection of over 1000 original CDs since the 1990's.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best of what's-their-name-again May 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Roxette is one of those groups that deservedly get lots of airplay, with their infectious hooks and catchy pop songs. It's a safe bet that you know most of their hit singles, even if you don't know the songs by name or who sings them.

The chameleon of pop music, Roxette's music infiltrates your sub-conscious, and whenever there's a familiar pop song buzzing around in your head, and you just can't place it, it's probably them.

The US version of this album from Amazon.com lists 15 songs, and notes below that there are four bonus tracks. The UK album available on Amazon UK only lists 11 songs, but I can't be sure if this is a typo or if it's missing a few tracks.

Roxette is made up of guitarist Per Gessie and vocalist Marie Fredriksson, who came together in the late eighties to make beautiful music together. Many albums and hit singles later, they're still with us, and even though this is a 1993 album, it still sounds as perky as ever.

For pop entertainment how can you beat lyrics such as:

"Walking like a man, hitting like a hammer, she's a juvenile scam, never was a quitter, tasty like a raindrop, she's got the look."

Trust me, you know more than 75% of the songs on this album, and after this crash course in Roxette 101, you won't forget them again.
