Remembrance book for Marie Fredriksson
Dear fellow friends, dear fans of Marie Fredriksson, dear Roxette fans, dear kind people in this world,
our friend Marie has passed away on December 9, and many, many people in the world are heartbroken and would like to express their feelings. Not everyone can do so on the social media, not everyone can do so by coming to Sweden and signing the official remembrance book laid out in Stockholm.
We want to collect your thoughts, your grieve, but also your finest memories with Marie here. Please write down what you always wanted to say to her, we will collect each single entry of yours, put them into one single book and send it over to Marie’s family to show them how much she made this world better through you.
[All entries made before January 1, 2020 were taken over for the book. You will still be able to add your messages now but we cannot consider them for the book to Marie’s family anymore as it has been printed by now.]
The Daily Roxette had one copy of the book printed early January 2020 and handed it over to Marie Dimberg, Roxette’s manager and a very good friend of Marie Fredriksson and her family, in Göteborg on January 20, 2020. The printed version of the book is nearly 800 pages thick and it has a white cover. Its title “Tack för allt Marie” (Thank you for everything Marie) is written in silver and red letters on its sleeve.
Here you see some quick photos of the book, sadly there has never been a chance to take proper photos of this one copy as it arrived just before the evening we headed to Göteborg for the “En kväll för Marie Fredriksson” show.
If you are interested, you can download a simplified version (the printed version contains a few more blank pages to separate the chapters, for instance) of the book with all entries right here.
The entries are sorted alphabetically by names, this file is also searchable.
Entries with non-latin character sets are at the very end of the book. Most URLs have been removed as they make little sense in a printed book.

A star never dies; it just transforms its light to eternity, I grow up listening to your incredible songs with your angelical voice, and even today, as of July 2021, I still listen to your songs, Rest in Peace.
I was very sad when I read about the passing of Marie Fredriksson. Before the word 'diva' became such a derogatory term in the American vernicular, Marie personified the original definition by her impassioned expressive emotive singing. In other words, she was one of the BEST in the business.. She and Per made a wonderful team together, not only was the music great but it proved that simple basic pop-rock can truly be FUN and catchy, not banal, pedestrian and dumb. Roxette has enriched my life since my college days and their songs are truly uplifting and they still matter and say something to me about my life. They remind me of such good times.
'Dangerous' takes me back to when the Eighties turned to the Nineties and the Cold War ended peacefully, as a recently discharged military.veteran who had served during the Cold War that point in time was historical and its lyrical theme of male affirmation in resisting temptation meant a lot to me when I was younger. It's mature. And 'It Must Have Been Love' is one of my alltime favorite ballads, Marie's singing really shines on that one! Wow.
Roxette is one of those unique bands where their whole catalog is good. They never made a bad album and their music has always been a pleasure to listen to. Per is a terrific musician and songwriter of his own merit but Marie is as well and the two together made the greatest pop-rock band Sweden has ever produced. And their music is entertaining to this day. God Bless You Marie, R.I.P. and thank you Per as well. You will not be forgotten. ROXETTE FOREVER
Rest in Peace and thanks for giving me such joy with your music which was an amazing gift to the world
God Bless you from Pennsylvania Marie and Per
Whereever you are now, i will miss you and your sometimes strong and sometimes sweet Voice,
that moves my Heart .
when i hear your music, my wonderful Childhood in the swedish summer will rise up!!
You are so missed every day, I was in my early twenties in the early 90's and it was a volatile time for myself and a few friends. Your voice and it's power played out loudly a lot!
Thank you for the music, it lives on and never ages. Hope you are surrounded by your heroes and are jamming with them!
Listening to your music today brings back wonderful and amazing memories of my childhood. Marie had an amazing and angelic voice. You will be forever missed.
Gracias Marie por toda la música y por todo lo que diste este mundo. Te recordaré por y para siempre.
Such passion and heart in all these wonderful songs. I still feel it today! Thank you Marie, you live on in your music, a gift to us all.
Love you Marie rest easy girl!
Gone, but never forgotten.
Miss her incredible voice.
She lighted my childhood. Hoping she is singing to the 🌟.
Beautiful time, beautiful music, wonderful memories. Roxette is the only one!
Roxette fut un de mes groupes préférés des années 80, 90 et apres. Ce sont des tubes inoubliables qui ont marqué nos vies, et que j'écoute encore régulièrement. La voix de Marie restera à jamais dans nos coeurs et nos oreilles aussi généreuse qu'émouvante. Elle me rappellera les merveilleux moments à l'écouter et nos plus belles années...
I was introduced to Roxette by my parents listening to the joyride cassette on long road trips we each got to pick one and I always chose joyride. I know it's to late to make the book but I just wanted to share how much Marie and Roxette music meant to me I have a lot of favorites like Joyride, the big l, church of your heart, the look, listen to your heart, and many others but my favorite that was sung by Marie was almost unreal. It had helped me get through tough times in my life like losing my mother in 2014 who loved roxette. Then in 2018 i was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (the same my mom had) and had to have open heart surgery to install a device called adv LVAD to keep me alive and now currently awaiting a heart transplant for a new heart. Through good times Marie's beautiful voice has gotten me through alot and I still listen to her music. So thank you Marie and prayers go out to Marie's family at this time.
Since i was a child i always loved this special band. In 1999 i was coming home from Nice when i bought Look Sharp. I remember the emotion that i proved ti buy my first CD. Roxette have accompaigned every stage of my life. Thanks Marie with all my heart for every emotion in all this time
I’ve been a Roxette fan since about 88/89. I still haven’t adjusted to the fact that Marie has passed on. Her incredible voice was what made Roxette stand out when I first heard them all those years ago. She’ll never be forgotten. My heartfelt condolences to her family. May she rest in peace.
You are the greatest and have accompanied me in my youth. Thanks a lot for this.
Gli avvenimenti più importanti della mia vita hanno come colonna sonora le vostre canzoni, la voce di Marie rimarrà sempre nel mio cuore.
Born in 1978, discovered Roxette in 1991, since then, Roxette have been my love, I still cannot believe that Marie passed away - forever my love to Marie
