Big Grin Your top ten Roxette songs?

Rumours are the Swedish duo may reform for a tour late this year - so I thought maybe we should get ready with a Roxette playlist!

I understand most US fans have been neglected since 'Joyride', but the rest of the world got the goods well into the 2000's...

So your top ten please!

Mine would be -

1. Wish I Could Fly
2. Almost Unreal
3. Salvation
4. Joyride (album version)
5. Spending My Time
6. Love Is All (Shine Your Light On Me)
7. Fireworks
8. It Will Take A Long Long Time
9. The Look
10. Crash! Boom! Bang!

Honourable mentions go to Queen Of Rain, June Afternoon, Fading Like A Flower, Vulnerable, Opportunity Nox and oh, about 60 others!

I think Roxette is the cheesiest of all the cheese out there, but I have a weakness for their Look Sharp record, so here goes:

1. Paint
2. Dangerous
3. Dance Away
4. Half a Woman, Half a Shadow
5. Dressed for Succes

I've run out of Look Sharp goodness...

6. The Big L.
7. Spending my Time
8. I Wish I could Fly
9. You Don't Understand Me
10. Listen to Your Heart

Wow, they were more successful than I first remembered. I think I saw them once.

Roxette pretty much owned the world along with Madonna and the New Kids back in 1989-1990.

All I know is joyride, It must have been love, and the look...

To say they "owned the world" during 89 is a far far stretch...

From 88-91, they were indeed one of the most popular acts around the world, although to say they owned it is probably not the best wording.

In just the U.S., they had a string of three #1 hits, two #2 hits, and several more Top 40 songs.

It was brief, but they were up there for a bit.

I'm sure they had better material, but I can't STAND those 3 songs, not even when they were released.

That lyric and the rockon smiley don't go together though. One would have to listen to the music.

I dug out the RoxBox last night - 'Church Of Your Heart' owns! 'Joyride' really needs more love - as an album it is awesome - Joyride, Fading Like A Flower, Big L, Spending My Time, Perfect Day, Church Of Your Heart, Soul Deep... methinks a reissue is in order! Quick! Call Sweden!
