an excellent rock/pop duo from Sweden that scored hits around the world in the late 80s to the mid 90s. They play a kind of sunny, playful, happy pop-rock that you just don't hear on the radio or see on the music video networks anymore.
Roxette scored many hits. 4 of them went to #1 in the U.S.A.. They were "She's Got the Look", "Listen to Your Heart", "It Must Have Been Love" (from the stupid movie "Pretty Woman"), and "Joyride" (catch that neat whistling). Other hits were the catchy "Dangerous", "Crash! Boom! Bang!", and "How Do You Do!".

A music duo who hail from Sweden, Roxette comprise of Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson. They are still around despite people thinking they have disappeared for good more popular in the late 80’s and 90’s they are famous for creating many pop / rock hits including “It Must Have Been Love” from Pretty Woman. Fantastic on tour and currently embarking through 2011 / 2012 on a World Tour! They took a short break during 2002 for a few years when the pretty blonde Marie was struck down with a brain tumour, she returned back on stage in 2009 during Per Gessle solo tour in Europe.
Ally has been a Roxette fan for over 20 years and loves nothing more than chasing them around Europe on tour!
