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.

Music has to bring happiness in life of everyone who wants to.
I have got recognizing Roxette after release of music video 'How do you do'. The video took me over by sparkling, dazzling performance, novel and exiting sound for my native town, elaborate lyrics.
I still remember the album Crash! Boom! Bang!, which was released 1994. It reminded me a box of lacorice candies of different tastes, which were offered as each taste for each song. The album was intensively promoted in my native town.
Surroundings of a person often determine music tastes starting from childhood. I left an apartment brand new morning 2001 and revealed huge posters around centre of district, from I lived on five minutes walk. I had been living in Hamburg (Germany) then. This was part of a promotional campaign for the new album Room Service. Marketing people regularly deliver such events after marketing mix with their 4 P approach. This album is still one of the best among albums of the group in my opinion.
Marie Fredriksson reputed to be extraordinary artist. We always liked her good, attractive appearance combined with feminine charm. She showed outstanding talent what deserved our respect and delight. Her soft, pleasant voice with appropriate, emotional intonations created particular mood and attitude, although she lacked personal charisma on my opinion.
Everybody faces end of own life. Marie Fredriksson passed away. She deserved to be perpetuated even if a composite RCC is for buy. She shall proceed staying alive in memory of greatful audiences who were supported, recovered, amused by Marie. Bye-bye Marie.
Thanks for the music Marie, a long time fan of your Pop / Rock. Will keep listening. Rest In Peace and thank you for the music. XXXX
We enjoyed work performed by Marie Fredriksson on scene and had plenty of good times with this. She shall fill room in our hearts for decades.
I were express our condolences to Marie's family, her friends, Per.
Dear Marie's friends and family,
After all these months, I still find it difficult to find the right words to express ally gratitude to Per's songs coupled with Marie's powerful yet sensitive performance. Both in studio and live, she gave her best vocals and passion for music. I have to admit that I fell unconditionally for Roxette once I heard that unmatched and beautifully high-pitched Dressed for Success' "YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!"
Thanks you, Marie, for bringing joy to my life in a time where I needed it the most.y heartfelt condolences to Marie's family and friends. César. Xxx
Thank you for the music, and your beautiful voice ❤️🙏🏼.. Per songs and your voice got me though teenage years... The first concert for me was in 91 in Oslo.. Is was amazing... I loved everything about you.. The last time I saw you was in Copenhagen in 2011.. I was so “ disappointed” because of her voice... I’m now ashamed and disappointed over my self., that I didn’t appreciate your voice and the concert.
Tank you for everything.. RIP Marie. Love you forever ❤️
Tack för alla sånger, konserter och minnen fina Marie. <3
Thank you so much for your music. RIP
Dear Marie, You and Per were my Abba replacement at a time when I needed those strong Swedish accented lyrics. Marie, your voice was my replacement for Agnetha, when Abba stopped recording, and you have been there for me ever since. I shall miss you so much. Thinking of you always, Ian x
Всю свою молодость с упоением слушала нежные, чувственные баллады Roxette, и продолжаю наслаждаться голосом ангела по имени Мари. Не могу говорить о ней в прошедшем времени, особенно сегодня, в день ее рождения. Божественный дар, редкая неподдельная женская красота, необ'ятная душа, верность настоящей дружбе и любви, прекрасная жена и мама - это все ты, Мари! Спасибо тебе за то, что научила весь мир "слушать свое сердце"... Ты в наших сердцах, пока жив этот мир!
His songs influenced me through lyrics that sometimes fit with my daily life, in addition to giving me a lot of joy and lightness in the face of such a rough, malicious and difficult world. Your pace has always had a lot to do with me. His departure, although mild and sadly inevitable, was impressive. It leaves a huge gap and a feeling that we are orphans, but not hopeless, as there is a lot of strength behind his romantic verses and always looking forward to a better, fun and simple tomorrow.
Thank you very much, Marie!
Thank you for the music !
Dear Marie, everytime, I hear your music, I remember of my youth.
Now you will sing with the angels.

Everyone around always knew what your music ment to me. Even now, 30+ years since, same music is played in my car, in my head, in my heart... My lifelong wish to attend your concert live never came true, but I feel like it doesn't make me any less worth in the line of your funs... Rest in peace Marie, you will always be remembered!
I just want to thank you for all of the truly wonderful memories that you have given to me over the years of my life. From my childhood right up until now. I cried like a baby when I heard the sad news of your passing, it still hurts now. Odd how someone can feel so sad over someone they have never met. But I guess it just shows the impact that you and Per have had on me over the decades. I'm sure I speak for many fans on that one. I hope that you are now a peace Marie. I love you and I'll never forget you. How I wish things had turned out different for you. You leave behind a wonderful legacy though and memories that will last all of your fans a lifetime. And even when we have left this earth what you achieved will live on through your music and voice. RIP Marie, we love you xxxxx
