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.

1989 году услышал группу Роксетт. Исполнение песен Мэри это неописуемо нужно просто слушать и наслаждаться. Мэри и Пер друг друга дополняли - получился фантастический дуэт. Спасибо Перу Гессле и Мэри Фредриксон что исполняли отличные песни. Я был в шоке что Мэри отошла в мир иной. СПИ МЭРИ, ПУСТЬ ЗЕМЛЯ ТЕБЕ ПУХОМ.
We all owe you so much, for bringing the soul into our lives, in a manner that only you know how. Nice clean timeless music, The goto music to bring us back to normality. Miss you two so much. Thank you for everything, you guide us and make us smile even in the dark. I really hope you are in peace in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you x
When I think about Marie and Per, I think about super heroes.. you literally rescued me in my most lonely and difficult years in my younger days.. the world around me was falling on me.. and right at the moment when I thought I couldn’t keep going.. there they were.. my Look Sharp and Joyride cassettes.. They will block everything around me and your voices became my oasis.. My escape.. and I knew that somehow everything was going to be Ok! Thank you for being a really important part in the soundtrack of my life. Though I have never met you, the connection I have through your music makes me feel love and gratitude to you both. My heart really hurt when I heard about Marie’s passing.. I never had the chance to see you perform live.. but I have sang clapped and sang along watching all your concerts on video. I have all your CDs and vinyls.. and of course.. my cassettes.. they are a treasure to me. Rest my sweet Marie and I hope the heavens will let you receive all the love we your fans have for you. Thank you for the Joyride!. Always in my heart! -J.
As time pass by I realize.. I will never forget you, never stop missing the comfort you gave with your voice. Thx again for everything ❤️.
I love music more than anything in the world. Thus, I love Marie's voice and contributions to music.
Music Heaven is getting crowded with the likes of Marie.
RIP, MARIE, and of course I still hear you here.
From the first song that I heard from Roxette I was hooked. The group's vocals and just sheer happiness to make beautiful music made my teen years awesome. THANK YOU!!!!
U & Marie made the concert hall at both Sydney Australia and Adelaide South Australia rock and U with Marie glow. Sadly it has to be said that " it must have been love but it's over now." The ride just like a "joyride' and to that playing the drums for U guys in 97 was "almost unreal". But per listen to ur heart before you tell her goodbye".
Your voice and joy of music entered my heart when I was just a boy. Now with children of my own, it is wonderful to share my love for your music with them. I will remember you with fondness and you will be remembered by generations to come. Thank you.
Marie you always stay in my heart. Your voice Marie was amazing and still is when I listing Roxette songs. I’ll always remember. Thank you.
Marie was a truly talented and wonderful heartfelt singer and i enjoyed immensely the concerts I was able to attend here in Australia. I am saddened not only by her loss but also that I will not be able ever again to experience the magic of listening to and seeing her and Per perform in person. Together you were amazing and thoroughly entertaining and I will always treasure those concerts I was privileged to be at and I will sadly miss her beautiful vocals that I know came from a truly beautiful person and soul but I also know that she will be sadly missed by all that loved her music but missed even more deeply by those that knew and loved her for the special person I believed her to be
Marie was a wonderful singer, bringing pleasure to millions. May she rest in peace and entertain all of those in heaven with her.
Så saknad du är. Kommer aldrig någonsin glömma dig. Lyssnar på din musik och blir lycklig samtidigt som hjärtat brister. Din underbara röst.. den kommer att finnas hos oss för alltid, men det gör ont att DU inte är kvar här hos oss längre. Måtte du ha det bra var du än är. Saknar dig för evigt..
Marie, you were entirely captivating. Your voice transported us to memories of love and loss that are warm and friendly. Thank You
Gracias por los años de mi adolescencia escuchando sus canciones.
Tuve la oportunidad de verlos en vivo en el Estadio de Velez Sarsfield
Dear Marie and Per,
I grew up listening to Roxette and the most beautiful thing about Roxette's numbers are that they resonate over the years to everyone regardless of how old the fans are. My all-time favourite is Listen To Your Heart. It has helped me pull through some of the worst moments of my life and I thank Marie and Per for 'being' there for me.
Your songs live on in our minds and in our hearts. Rest In Peace Marie.
With fond memories
I see a lot of reviews from different countries, and many of them from Russia))) Roxette, your beautifull composisions associated with the most beautiful memories))))
I don"t know what to say. ROXETTE is part of my life.....
Your music has filled out my youth. Very nice. Marie, you were one of the best singers in the world. Hope you are at peace, wherever you are now...
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.
