Marie's 60 for 60. #31 Även vargar måste välja (Even Wolves Must Choose). In today's song what sounds sad is sad. A melancholic song about the feelings when you are left by someone you love but could not keep by your side. "Even wolves like you/Must choose sometimes". We here assume this is all about Marie and Lasse Lindbom having broken up shortly before they began working on Efter stormen together. #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/aven-vargar-maste-valja/

Marie's 60 for 60. #32 Kaffe och tårar (Coffee and Tears). Here we have a song that sounds quite airy and taking into consideration it was written by Marie and Lasse Lindbom again, one might expect it to be just another pop song. But it isn't. According to Marie's autobiography it was written after another good friend committed suicide, this time because the men he was in love with left him. She said, at the funeral there were mostly young people in the church to mourn him. #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/kaffe-och-tarar/

THE SATURDAY SONG. Have a fab weekend y'all! /P.


Roxette - Spending My Time

Marie's 60 for 60. #33 Tro på mej (Believe Me). Today we introduce you to one of Marie's earlier songs and as regular reader of this daily series you may have noticed that her earlier songs mostly had a more positive mood. So here she is, offering you help when you have doubts about yourself and everything seems pointless: "When all the doors close/and nothing is what it used to be/Then I'm here, I'm your friend/When nothing else is left/I'll hear you/I see you/I touch you". Enjoy your weekend! #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/tro-pa-mej/

Benny Andersson

Marie's 60 for 60. #34 Felicia adjö (Felicia Good-bye). We've met Ann-Katrin and Veronica; Felicia is maybe a sister of them. They all lived in the mind of singer-songerwriter Cornelis Vreeswijk, and Marie has covered not less than four of his songs for his tribute album, three of them to be found as bonus tracks on Den ständiga resan. Looks like she admired him a lot, don't you think? #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/felicia-adjo/

Roxette - Listen To Your Heart

Marie's 60 for 60. #35 Jag går min väg (I'm Going My Way). We're leaving the path of misery for a while, as now we come to another 10 point uptempo song, this time written by Marie and her then-boyfriend Lasse Lindbom. "You can dance with who you want/You can still play for a few hours more/But if you think I'm waiting/then I'm deceiving you/You expect too much of me/I slip away/I'm dancing away from you." Please raise your hand if the last line sounds familiar to you. #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/jag-gar-min-vag/

Marie's 60 for 60. #36 Det regnar igen (It's Raining Again). Yesterday, we talked about rain and today, it's raining again. It's a very moody song from the album Den ständiga resan. Marie is out there in this rainy city, wondering "if it's me or if it's us". She's left alone with her thoughts, but life around her goes on and on... #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/det-regnar-igen/

"Dags att tänka på refrängen" - the review

So, here we are again. The TDR team meets in the 'Virtual-Record-Review-Room' to review the latest album from Gyllene Tider. This time Thomas, Kai, Paul & Colin discuss the album. Find out their thoughts below... Thomas: What strikes me is that this album sounds like it was been recorded in

Marie's 60 for 60. #37 En känsla av regn (A Sense of Rain). What sounds so airy and nice is often something completely different when sung by Marie. This is true here once more. This song, written by Lasse Lindbom and Niklas Strömstedt, is actually an ode to loss and deception. "I could not hold you/So you travel and go/You turn away/And I get a sense of rain" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/en-kansla-av-regn/

Marie's 60 for 60. #38 Ett enda liv (One Single Life) is a very personal song for Marie because she wrote it along with Anders Herrlin for a very close friend of hers who committed suicide. "You were our friend/our best friend of them all/You never found home/and you shall know it feels/So strong and yet so weak./If we had only understood/To give you all our strength/for the life you should have had." It shall be noted here that this is the first song in our playlist that received ten points from one of us. #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/ett-enda-liv/

Marie's 60 for 60. #39 Längtan (Intro) (Longing) Yet another opening track, this time for Efter Stormen. The longer version of it features as track #7 on the album, and without giving away too much information, we will deal with it later, too. For now sit back, relax and listen to this masterpiece, please. #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/langtan/

Marie's 60 for 60. #40 Het vind (Hot Wind). We're reaching the Top 40 of our playlist, and we do this in style with the title song of Marie's first solo album. The lyrics, written by Ulf Lundell, are a bit surreal we think. "The fans spin, the curtains sway/In the sea barracudas and sharks swim /Everyone is waiting in the bar's darkness/Semi-closed eyes and thunder rumbles/There is a hot wind blowing in" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/het-vind/
