Marie Fredriksson has died at 61

Tue Dec 10, 2019 9:46 pm

Another beautiful voice that has left this world.

Three decades ago the band she was part of had world success with this song: https://youtu.be/k2C5TjS2sh4

Strangely, for me, it's as if it was yesterday.

Roxette was indeed one of the sounds of my childhood, a long time ago, I feel old. An interesting fact is that none of the two singers spoke one word of English in the beginning, so they learned them foneticaly.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Her career from before Roxette shall not be forgotten. She was the big female star in Scandinavia before Roxette.

Can we update the title of the thread to include the word Roxette? I never had heard of Marie Fredriksson, but do know Roxette.

Do you have a source for that? I have to say I doubt it since they both went to school in Sweden in their youth. And Per wrote most of their lyrics, which would really have been impressive if he didn't speak english.

Perhaps I shouldn't say "fact", it is something which I have remembered from the time I listened to the radio and they were huge, perhaps it was just a roomer and I fell for it. :lol:

You do not mix Roxette with ABBA?
