Lovers of romantic ballads surely remember some of the songs with catchy and sweet lyrics by Roxette. It is a Swedish rock band formed by the vocalist Marie Fredriksson and the guitarist Per Gessle. The main characteristic of Roxette is its blend of pop with varied hints of dance. The major influence from The Beatles, Blondie to Joni Mitchell and Aretha Franklin contributed to define their music style.

For Roxette, fame was a double-edged sword since they could control a huge number of people in places like Frankfurt, Sydney and Buenos Aires. This fanaticism and powerful influence of their songs is clearly illustrated when people in a concert sang the tune of the band’s greatest hit, “It Must Have Been Love.” The achievements of Roxette have no limits since approximately their worldwide sales are up to 75 million copies among singles and albums. Indeed, Roxette has received two platinum albums certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Some of their albums include Look Sharp, Joyride and two gold singles “The Look” and "It Must Have Been Love.”

Roxette is not just a duo but the talent of two people who had separate careers and decided to join their forces to establish a solid group. And, they were not wrong because they have not stopped releasing as many albums as possible. In addition, the acceptance of the public for their songs is evident due to the amount of people attending their concerts and tours. If you really want to listen to great music, Roxette has incredible lyrics that make you feel differently.
