Roxette - discuss.

Word on the street is a new Joyride is about to start. The Roxette forums are abuzz as Marie and Per look set to reform and start work on their next album - 5 years after the release of 'Room Service'. So I thought it may be a good time to have a chinwag about the poppy Swedish duo!

For me, Roxette hit their creative peak with 'Crash! Boom! Bang!' and then again hit paydirt with 'Have A Nice Day'. The songs from this period - 'Vulnerable', 'Run To You', 'Wish I Could Fly', 'Stars', and 'Salvation' are fine mature pop treats - much deeper than the likes of 'Fading Like A Flower', 'It Must Have Been Love' and 'Dressed For Success' - which while fun have dated awfully.

So my Top Ten Rox moemnts -

1. Wish I Could Fly
2. Queen Of Rain
3. Almost Unreal
4. Listen To Your Heart
5. Centre Of The Heart
6. Salvation
7. I Love The Sound Of Crashing Guitars
8. Fireworks
9. Run To You
10. Joyride

Wow, really? Ok.

Dressed For Success is almost criminal, it is so appalling. Why did they disappear for so long?

Um, Marie had a bout of cancer and then had a brain tumout. Per reformed his old Swedish band Gyllene Tyler (?) and toured Scandinavia selling out stadiums. I also believe a good deal of this decade has been spent rolling around in a large pile of money.

Loved them when I was a kid and their lyrics are fun if not hilarious. Marie has a great voice.

The Joyride CD was actually pretty good compared to a lot of the other pop released at the time.
