★ The Daily Roxette Archives

It's been 15 years since the movie "Pretty Woman" entered the scene, and with that, the now classic song "It Must Have Been Love." Of course, in Sweden the song was released in 1987 already, as "It Must Have Been Love (Christmas for the Broken Hearted)," - Roxette's Christmas single. BMI, one of two organizations like STIM in the US, has now announced that "It Must Have Been Love" has now been played more than four million times on US radio. Per Gessle will therefore get another award from BMI for this. Per comments "It's of course unbelievable." Four million times is about 36 years non-stop playing... But that's not all, Per Gessle and MP Persson will also receive an award from BMI for "Dance Song of the Year" regarding "Listen to Your Heart," as these two gentlemen are the writers of the hit. The song has passed the limit for platinum with more than 352,000 downloads. In Europe "Listen to Your Heart" by D.H.T. is on the top 10 in Holland and in France. The awards will be presented in London, November 29.
