I stopped listening to new material once I got Pretty Good Year and heard Honey back in 94 / 95 but early teens were all about Roxette!!!

So top 10 time!!!

Fading Like a Flower
The Sweet Hello, The Sad Goodbye
Church of Your Heart
Dressed For Success
Spending My Time
Listen To Your Heart
Silver Blue
Never Is A Long Time
Fireworks
The Look (specifically that remix from 95)

close calls:-
Here Comes The Weekend
Don't Believe in Accidents

I have to say I did listen obsessively for a few years half a lifetime ago!

I loved Roxette back in the day & must admit that I still listen to them on occasion. Tourism is probably my favorite album. Nice to know that they are releasing something new.

Yes! That album is always in our car (even though my man won't let me play it that often ;l)
How do you do, heart shaped sea, the rain, never is a long time, silver blue: all good!

I totally still have a soft spot for Roxette - they were my first real pop music love. <3

I still have Tourism and Crash Boom Bang on CD.

"Never Is A Long Time" and "First Girl On The Moon" are two of my favourite songs. They pop into my head randomly still.

Awww. Roxette. [love2]

Also, random name-dropping moment: my cousin is married to Roxette member's Per Gessle's nephew. I always try to get the scoop on what the band's up to.

Marie's been looking pretty rough, understandably, since she went through surgery and extensive treatment for a brain tumor a couple of years ago. It's also affected her voice quite a bit.

Oh I know... I think it's amazing that she's even making this comeback!
(Per needs a different stylist, though...)

So, uhm, they released an album in 2012, Travelling, and I only found out until now? Weird...
And it's a sort of sequel to Tourism, as in: another on-tour album with songs from all over the place.

Pressing play in 1,2,3...
