“A Thing About You” begins to climb the charts


Roxette's lastest offering, the single "A Thing About You," appears to be gaining ground with increasing airplay on radio and music video channels in various spots around the globe, despite what appears to be a lack of interest this time around from fans to mount any kind of coordinated campaign to help promote the record.

  In Moscow, Radio Maximum's Hit Parade shows Roxette's "A Thing About You" at #2! This single will chart on this week's Hit List and seems to have a chance to beat "Milk & Toast & Honey"'s record.

  In Germany also, Roxette went straight to #2 in the chart of station FFH. "Herbert Grönemeyer is quite big in Germany, at least at the moment, so #2 is fab!," wrote Andreas Kämpf.

  The Daily Roxette's SmallTalk forum has several mentions of ATAY being played on radio and TV, and we can expect similar information to be posted as comments to this article.

  Previous "RoxAttaqs" have met with mixed success. While some have been clear victories, others have – because of the SPAM factor – only served to anger the music directors of particular radio stations.
