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.

Years and years listening your voice.
You will always be number 1.
Your smile, your kindness, your voice ...
You are eternal....
Thank you Marie...
I met Roxette as a child by my parents who were always fans. So I can say that Marie's voice accompanies my whole life! It's an honor to be a fan of the band, to be a fan of her! And it's a blessing to have many good times with her! May God receive it and bless the family! Thanks for everything! Joyride never ends!
Solo decir que la musica y la voz hemosa de Mary la seguiré escuchando como hace mas de 20 años, las canciones en español acompañaron mi primer embarazo y las disfrute mucho y las seguire escuchando... besos al cielo bella😥🎶♥️🌺
The 1st rock band I ever followed. Great memories of your South African tour in 1995.
RIP, you will forever live on in the music you left behind!
Beautiful Marie, you brought such joy to my life since I was a kid. It was my life long dream to meet you one day and to see you sing live. Today was a hard hit for all fans, I'm just devastated. Much love to your family and friends. Hugs from Canada.
So sorry to hear of your passing, your music was a big part of my 90s.
For Marie Fredriksson R. I. P.
Songs for the Broken Hearted
All those nights
By the silver moon
Dreaming of love
For all the flowers to bloom
Slowly drifting away
To sleep through the pain
Of knowing deep inside
Every day is the same.
I hear your song
3 minutes or more
Turn on the lights
And open the door
It would take my hand
You would bring me hope
Heal my heart
And fix what was broke
By the morning
The very next day
April clouds are so far away
Your voice recalls heartache long gone
As you say there is someone, someone there for everyone
A heart for a heart
And a journey to find
That starts with all that you've left behind
I'll remember you always
How could I really forget
Your comforting voice
When I was so upset
Songs for the broken hearted
Played on and on
Because even the broken hearted
Can find the one...
Thank-you for everything you meant to me, I'll never forget you. ❤️
I grew up listening to Roxette, Pretty Woman is my favourite film, so It Must Have Been Love is my favourite, still play their music whilst doing housework or driving in my car, Your songs will live on in my home as they will in many others I'm sure. There is another bright shining star in the skies tonight, love to your family at this sad time
No me lo puedo creer. Eras mi artista favorita, adolescencia vivida con tu voz, tus canciones. Primeras que he traducido de ingles a polaco y he aprendido todas para poder disfrtutarlas contigo. Muchas gracias en mi corazón y memoria estaras para siempre, descansa en paz Marie 🙁
Gone but will never be forgotten the music you made will live on forever as will the memories of you thank you for all you have given
Thank you, Marie, for putting the music to my teenage years. Love you!!
When I read of her passing, a part of my 90s passed with her. What a voice!!! Hard to match as well. So many songs part of my childhood. To her family and bandmates, my deepest sympathies and condolences on her passing. I never had the chance to see Roxette in concert, but I loved their music. Marie was a gift to this world and blessed many people with her talent; she was electric! May she rest peacefully in all eternity. The music world lost an amazing talent and will not be the same now that she's gone.
Legends never die!
Thank you for your wonderful music!
Always in our hearts! 🙏🏻
Thanks for the sound of my youth...
You will be missed, Rest in peace Marie... 🖤
