God speed Marie Fredriksson - Roxette

Marie Fredriksson, who fronted the Swedish rock and pop band Roxette, died Monday morning (December 9) after a “17-year long battle with cancer,” the BBC reports. She was 61.


Sad to read of Marie’s passing and thanks brett66 for posting this. Of all Roxette’s songs, my favorite remains “Joyride”, which hasn’t been mentioned in her obit.

When I was a teen we used to go to a 16+ dance club. I grew up in a rural place and they have such things for the yoots :wink:

Anyway, a couple of Roxette hits were in heavy rotation during that time and take me right back to those days and nights when I hear them now.
