3 million times: “It Must Have Been Love”

BMI, an American performing rights organization, has again given awards to talented and popular songwriters. Among the artists honored is Per Gessle, with his Roxette hit "It Must Have Been Love". The 1990 hit single has been played over 3 million times by American radio stations.

  To put all this in perspective, if you were to play "It Must Have Been Love" (which is 4:19 mins) continuosly, it would take over 24 years to play it 3 million times. So, at any given time, there are always 2.4 radio stations in the US playing the song.

  This is not the first time Per has recieved a BMI award. In 1998, "Listen To Your Heart" won their 2 million performance award category.
