Name You Beautiful – Exclusive video preview

Per had invited all fans and friends to be part of the video to his new single “Name You Beautiful”. And here is the result. Exclusive on The Daily Roxette.

Marie Fredriksson 60 for 60
Marie Fredriksson’s “60 for 60”

It’s Marie’s 60th birthday soon so we came up with a most splendid idea. You’ll love this.


Be in Per’s new video

Five days ago, Per released his new single “Name You Beautiful.”


What to play? What not to play? These are the…

An esteemed wise man once rapped “…Guess who’s back? Back again. Gessle’s back, tell a friend…”


Gessle tours Europe with Roxette’s music!

Good news for European fans of Swedish super group and classic hit makers Roxette—the duo’s songwriter Per Gessle is embarking on a European tour focusing on the mighty Roxette song catalogue this autumn.


Name You Beautiful, the Liebherr anthem

Per Gessle is back with a dynamic song that could have easily been the opening song to Roxette’s last studio album Good Karma.


And the winners are…

In our contest last week we urged you to send in your best photos of the tour and surroundings, in order to win a signed copy of the brand new photo book En vacker bok.


Reviewing En vacker bok

Last week we reviewed the live album, today it’s time for the book to be scrutinized. They come as a package – a tour CD and a tour photo book.


En vacker kväll, an album review

So here it is, the legacy after this summer’s very successful tour. It’s short, but Per has a reasonable explanation as of why.

Marie's 60 for 60. #42 Tid för tystnad (Time For Silence) This beautiful little ballad from "Den ständiga resan" tells you about the feelings of a couple which can only be together at rare occasions, like you would imagine it to be with one of them permanently touring the world, for instance. And then it's good when you can just sit side by side and say nothing... "We have got to start over/so many times over again/If we only have time for silence/When we look and listen and listen/Give us time for silence" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/tid-for-tystnad/


Tid för tystnad

Marie's 60 for 60. This is #42 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Marie Fredriksson's career.

Marie's 60 for 60. #43 Värdighet (Dignity). The opening track of Den sjunde vågen (The 7th Wave, more about this maybe later) is great proof that Marie is able to write uptempo dance songs even though the topic is not of the lighter kind. Dignity needs strength, especially when you are with someone who likes to bend the truth sometimes: "Where does it come from/this feeling that something's wrong/Are these just phantasies or do you play a double game?/That's nothing I can or want to do something about/It's just my dignity!" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/vardighet/


Värdighet

Marie's 60 for 60. #44 Skyll på mej (Blame Me). Another song that has not been written by Marie but a musician named Per Andersson. "A time without questions/A breeze without waves/Smile against all the winds". The guitar was played by Staffan Astner who later would work for not only Marie and Roxette but also for Ray Charles and Celine Dion. #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/skyll-pa-mej/

Roxette - Love is All (Live 1995) - www.dailyroxette.com

Live in Johannesburg, South Africa Jan. 14 1995.

Marie's 60 for 60. #46 Det blåser en vind (A wind blows). This powerful ballad was written by Lasse Lindbom, a big name in Swedish pop business and an important patron for both Marie's and Per's careers. Lasse, Marie, Per and Mats MP Persson formed the band Exciting Cheeses and performed their songs live, and that was just shortly before Rolf Nygren of EMI had an idea that lead to the recording of the song "Neverending Love" for a project called "Roxette". But I guess this is a different story... #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/det-blaser-en-vind/

Marie's 60 for 60. #49 Min trognaste vän (My Most Faithful Friend). Today we let the lyrics speak for themselves: "You, my most faithful friend, I will do all I can/So you feel freedom without a band./My faithful little friend/Fall asleep still beside me/I rock you, slowly you." Who do you think this wonderful ballad was written for? #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/min-trognaste-van/


Min trognaste vän

Marie's 60 for 60. This is #49 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Marie Fredriksson's career.

Marie's 60 for 60. #50 Veronica. So we are entering the Top 50 of what we believe are Marie's best songs, we hope you could agree with us so far. Do you remember Ann Katrin? Veronica was yet another of Cornelis Vreeswijk's characters, this song too was covered by Marie for the album "Den flygande holländaren" (The Flying Dutchman), a collection of Cornelis' songs rerecorded by famous Swedish artists after his death. By the way, Marie was involved in not less than four songs on this compilation. More of them to follow here? Let me check... #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/veronica/

Marie's 60 for 60. #51 När du såg på mig (When You Looked At Me). After a series of rather dark and slow songs we now experience a new side of Marie's music. Loud, energetic, life-affirming. Which should not surprise you when you know that this one is a love song which deals with the feelings when your love wakes up next to you in the morning. Sung by Marie along with Lasse Lindbom who, at these times, actually were a real couple. Who would have thought? #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/nar-du-sag-pa-mig/
