“Milk And Toast And Honey” huge radio hit in Germany
Following the success of "The Centre Of The Heart" and also the somewhat constant radio airplay of "Real Sugar" in most countries in Europe, "Milk And Toast And Honey" is getting fantastic airplay on some German radio stations. It has been #1 on some of their airplay lists for more than two weeks.
Per has mentioned many times that "after a pop tune there is alway a power ballad…" and M&T&H comes close to being that. It's definitely a "Roxette song" and people are loving it.
The single is also on the top 100 singles charts at #59 and the "Room Service" album is climbing the chart again slowly. In this reporter's opinion, this means that having a hit doesn't truly mean that the song has to sell a lot but at least be recognized and appreciated when played on the radio and that is what is now happening to Roxette.
Also, in Portugal, the ballad is now getting airplay due to its apparence on the soap opera "Um Anjo caiu do ceu" produced in Brazil. Hopefully, it will become huge there as happens many times with soap opera soundtracks. Interestingly, the three singles from "Room Service" are now simultaneoulsy getting airplay on radio stations in Portugal - quite an unusual situation.
