Marie's 60 for 60. #5 Tro (Faith) Oh, oh yes! It's Tro and it's #5! Which only means that we too like this song very very much. It's probably the most iconic Marie song and while the title makes you believe (no pun intended) that it's about religion, the lyrics leave space for interpretation: "Faith/I want to have faith/I want to feel tomorrow grow closer here in peace/In a winter world, is there faith?/I want to feel the wish about a time as bright as the freedom/Have faith again" . #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/tro/


Tro

Marie's 60 for 60. This is #5 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Marie Fredriksson's career.

Marie's 60 for 60. #6 Den bästa dagen (The Best Day) The title sounds promising so many Swedish couples choose this song as their wedding song. So far so good. The problem is, it's actually quite a sad song and people seem to ignore the lyrics. Here's where TDR comes into play, so sit and learn: "Now I'm on my way again/longing for the truth/longing for rest in my soul/I always get the same answer/So many lies remain/So much concern in my soul/ A life, a seeking life/A time, a doubting time/This will be the best day of my life/The first and the biggest day of my life/I will cling on to the feeling/That I love" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/den-basta-dagen/


Den bästa dagen

Marie's 60 for 60. #7 Äntligen (Finally/At Last) A happy song and again a fan favorite! We've dealt with the remix of this song, "Solen gick ner över stan", a few days ago and here is the original. You know this feeling when you miss someone, you're longing (yes, THE Marie theme) and then suddenly this one person steps back into your life: Finally the sun goes up for you! "Finally, finally today/the sun rose up above the town/Everything I've missed is returning/Finally like the best friend/Finally!" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/antligen/


Äntligen

Marie's 60 for 60. #8 Mellan sommar och höst (Between Summer and Autumn) We know, we know. Way too early, most of you will say now but you have no idea what we have up our sleeves! Now, do you remember the meaning of the seasons in Marie's lyrics? As good students of the TDR School of Song Analysis you know that the summer stands for good stable times while autumn is when things turn dark... "There's a feeling when the sun sets/When your shadow is all I see/A feeling between summer and autumn/When no one only you can give me support" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/mellan-sommar-och-host/


Mellan sommar och höst

Marie's 60 for 60. This is #8 of TDR's hand-picked list of songs from Marie Fredriksson's career.

Marie's 60 for 60. #9 Silver i din hand (Silver in Your Hand). A summer hit in 1986, and certainly one of our favorites. A happy-go-lucky song once more about love. "Silver in your hand/is nothing worth in this world/but in the land of my heart/is it as expensive as gold." #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/silver-i-din-hand/

Marie's 60 for 60. #10 För dom som älskar (For Those Who Love). Welcome to the Top 10, time to get excited! Today we listen to the fight between the warmth of love and the cold of the world. Who will win? Because only when you find love there is the power to make this world a little bit warmer and better. "No more lies/I say what I see/and I refuse to give up/Come here and conspire tonight/come here and plan a coup/For those who love/it's never too late/For those who love/the light's always on." #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/for-dom-som-alskar/

Marie's 60 for 60. #11 Den sjunde vågen (The Seventh Wave) We're at the sea again, or are we? Technically, the tale of the 7th wave says that when you watch the sea there are weak and strong waves and every 7th of them comes in stronger than the others. Check it out next time and tell us if it's true. This song on the other hand opens a second layer to the story and describes the seven steps of falling in love while at least from wave #5 on it gets a bit explicit if you read between the lines. Time for you to consult the online translator of your choice and judge yourself. You know you'll always find the lyrics at... #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/den-sjunde-vagen/

Marie's 60 for 60. #12 Ett hus vid havet (A House By the Sea). Welcome to the weekend, today we proudly present a rather short but surprisingly happy little tune which is actually only 80 seconds long, followed by a screaking seagull and seawaves which then fade out. "I want a house by the ocean where I can listen to the seagulls and do what I please" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/ett-hus-vid-havet/

Marie's 60 for 60. #13 Där du andas (Where you breathe). Movie time, ladies and gentlemen. Here we listen to the theme song for the movie Arn - Riket vid vägens slut. Marie's version of it (it was sung by a few more artists later) immediately reached #1 in the Swedish charts. For the international edition of the movie she sang the song in English, you'll find it as "Where Your Love Lives". If you want to impress someone at the party: The movie won the Cinema Audience Award at the 2009 Guldbaggegalan, where another movie ringing a bell with every Roxette fan came in only 3rd: "Låt den rätte komma in" with Per's song "Kvar i min bil". #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/dar-du-andas/

Still #1.


Marie's 60 for 60. #14 Natt efter natt (Night After Night) - All Through The Night. I'm sure you know the version by Cindy Lauper and think it's the original but it isn't. The song was written and first performed by Jules Shear in 1983, and he is also the one who sings the backing vocals in Lauper's version. Marie, to return to the topic for a while, recorded a cover of this song and released it on the B-side of the Het Vind single. Here's wondering how many people even knew about this recording. Did you? #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/natt-efter-natt-time-after-time/

Marie's 60 for 60. #15 Så skimrande var aldrig havet ( The ocean was never as lustrous) Evert Taube (1890-1976) was Sweden's national poet of his time although he was never happy with that reputation, as he mastered so many other arts in his life. His poem Så skimrande var aldrig havet from 1946 is sung beautifully here by Marie, the first one and a half minutes even a capella. "The ocean was never as lustrous/and the beach never as liberating/the fields, the meadows, the trees never as beautiful/and the flowers never as lovely fragrant/as when you walked by my side/towards the sunset/the beautiful evening/where your locks hid me to the world/while you drowned all my sorrows/darling in your first kiss" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/sa-skimrande-var-aldrig-havet/

Marie's 60 for 60. #16 Ännu doftar kärlek (Still the Scent of Love) Marie's first big solo hit. Rumors had it that this song as well was written by Per but the truth is, it's another great collaboration with Lasse Lindbom (who would cover this song himself later) and Marie. It's a gentle little tune about love, hope and promises. So touching that it was performed by Marie during the wedding of princess Madeleine of Sweden in 2013: "I wish you're still there/when the sun rises/When the night has become day/do you want me then?/ Because I want to open myself to you/when the sun rises." #marie60 And as a happy coincidence it was released today in 1984! http://www.dailyroxette.com/annu-doftar-karlek/

Marie's 60 for 60. #17 Rickie Lee (Rickie Lee ) This actually isn't a Marie song but Per wrote it to honor Rickie Lee Jones, an American poet/musician/vocalist whose debut album was released in 1979 which, as you may recall, was more or less the time Per and Gyllene Tider got huge in Sweden. Do you prefer Marie's or Per's version of the song? #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/rickie-lee-2/

Marie's 60 for 60. #18 Längtan (Longing) We know, some of you have been waiting for this song to come, certainly hoping it would chart higher but hey, mark this day in your diary, this is the day "Längtan" shows up, the song named after the strongest theme in Marie's early career: Longing. "If you want the key to my secret/you must dare the whole way/give your longing to the ocean Let it drift with the currents/sit down on the beach/and wait and see" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/langtan/

Marie's 60 for 60. #19 Ber bara en gång (I Only Ask Once) Oh yes, another song about longing, this time for the person that left you but you are still in love with him. It's the last cry before you finally have to give in and face that darker times are coming: "I only ask once/Don't leave me here/If I lose my faith in you/There's nothing left for me here" #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/ber-bara-en-gang/

We'll talk about both songs when the song Äntligen will appear on our list in... well... time will tell! :) #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/antligen/

Marie's 60 for 60. #21 Aldrig som främlingar (Never Like Strangers) It's breakup time today but not for you and us but for Marie and someone she is still going to see in spite of their ways parting: "There wasn't much said/the day you left/No harsh words/There was never a scene/just a short farewell/A kiss where we stood/We could have forgotten everything/right then/I could have said/Honey stay/You could have asked me again/But you left/I closed my door/Of course I'm going to miss you..." #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/aldrig-som-framlingar/

Marie's 60 for 60. #22 I en tid som vår (In a Time Like Ours). Being both the title song and 2nd single off the 1996 album I en tid som vår, it charted not so well but got attention as the theme song to Colin Nutley's drama "Sånt är livet" (That's life). A sad song about loneliness: "It turns to winter night again/and I hope you've already left town/It will be a beautiful night/a lonely silent tear in a time like ours". #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/i-en-tid-som-var/

Marie's 60 for 60. #23 När vindarna vänt (When the Winds Have Turned). Love at first sight, and then this person is gone. Is this what this song is about? Probably yes. You imagine what could have happened but never will. "The walk we never took/in September when the summer died/but the roads will probably still wait/until the winds turn". #marie60 http://www.dailyroxette.com/nar-vindarna-vant/
