EMI Brazil includes “My Moments” double-CD in Roxette discography


RIO DE JANEIRO - Have you heard the Roxette song "Black Snake"? How about "Bath of Kisses"? No?!? Well, how about "Olodum Ologbom" or "Love is Infinite"?

  All of these songs, and more, are included on a Roxette double-CD album entitled "Meus Momentos" (My Moments) that EMI Brazil is including in its online discography of material released in Brazil – a country where Roxette has enjoyed tremendous success and continues to have immense name recognition.

  However, far from being a rare gem for collectors to snatch up, this is instead simply a rather obvious mistake. The first clue is that the cover art looks strangely similar to that of Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus.

  But it's the tracklist for Disc Two where things get even more absurd, as all the tracks seem to be representative of music from a region of Brazil named Bahia, where many slaves were brought from Africa. Instead of Roxette, TDR has discovered that many of the songs belong to a group called Olodum.
