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.

The first cassette I’ve bought, the first concert I’ve visited, followed by so many more. I grew up with the music from Roxette. All my family loved and still loves the songs and Marie’s voice. A great artist, singer, songwriter and a beautiful soul has left this earth to shine bright in the sky. Marie will certainly be missed by many. You will always be in my heart, Marie. Love always ❤️. Never is a long time...
Marie such an icon a legend, played a huge part if my childhood growing up and until present day of my life your music and vocals have made me the person I am today, i remember having the song "The Rain" playing over and over again when I was growing up in Wales, you started my love afair with Sweden, as another Swedish group said "Thank you for the music" thank you for shaping my life you are amazing your light will shine bright forever sleep tight we love you James xxxxx
My dream as a kid was to sing with you Marie, on the stage. Spending my time. Eventually we will meet and sing.
Marie taught me to learn English because I wanted to know what she Sang on such beautiful á ángel voice. The one That made me cry was. The rain and do you get exited. Marié you also took part of my feelings as I dedicated songs from roxette to my Young girlfriends.
Marie, sua doce voz foi o embalo da minha vida. Me fez sonhar. Não cheguei a conhece-la pessoalmente mas me sentia como se fizesse parte da minha vida. Sonhei muitas vezes com ela. Sua beleza e energia ficaram sempre em minha memória. Sem duvida a melhor cantora que já existiu.
Es ist so Wahnsinnig Schmerzhaft, das Marie von uns gegangen ist 😢
30 Jahre Lang hat sie mich mit ihrer Musik Begleitet und Begeistert.
Ihre Stimme war Einzigartig, Stark und Gefühlvoll... Ich liebte die Show
an den Konzerten und ihre Energie. Ich Vermisse Marie Wahnsinnig.
Ich wünsche der Familie viel Kraft, diesen Verlust zu Verarbeiten
und alles gute 🕯🕯🕯🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 Moe 🇨🇭 😢
I am so sad with the news of Marie's passing. Love to her family. She truly will continue to be the best company to play loud in my car stereo. So many hard times would have been so much harder without her music. Love and light for you all. Thank you, Marie Fredriksson, for your talent and your music.
Marie, tus canciones me hablan. Con vos conocí el amor y la amistad. Gracias por tu maravillosa música que me acompaña desde siempre. Vivirás en mi corazón por toda la eternidad.
I'm a bit younger than the average Roxette fan (born in 1986) but Roxette was very much the soundtrack of my life and especially my youth. I still have the posters on my walls. I heard Marie's magical voice live at least four times. I love the new albums as well as the old ones. I have them all on my shelf.
Being in love with Roxette also inspired me to learn some Swedish and find amazing friends in Sweden. Or to write music myself. It truly changed my life in many ways. I don't have anything special or extraordinary to say, but just like so many others all around the world I'm extremely grateful for what Marie and Per have given this world. Music lasts forever. Longer than lives or even memories. Millions of people have found joy or strength through these songs and I have no doubt that millions more will.
It was amazing, seeing how Marie put her everything into those tours and concerts even after we all thought that was over nearly 20 years ago. I hope she put the same energy into time with her friends and family. She seems like the kind of person who would have made the best of a truly shitty situation.
I wish you peace of heart and mind. I hope your memories are mostly happy and your futures bright.
How to say goodbye to someone we don't know personally but we admire and love so much? I cannot remember a day of my life when Marie Fredriksson's voice was not present; she sang my joys, sorrows, loves and goodbyes and became a reference of beauty, strength and grandeur. So in this sad hour of goodbye, between tears, I can only thank you for being the voice that sang my life! Tkx for the joyride!
Gracias por tu voz Marié!!
Beautiful your voice you accompanied me from my adolescence until today that is my birthday your songs had meaning throughout this time will be immortal as your memory the sky is partying here we celebrate having sung your songs and will continue in our hearts until forever dear Marie ... since URUGUAY 12/10/2019
Roxette became part of my life in 1989, when I was only 6 years old. Since then I listen to their songs frequently, visited concerts and read everything I could find about them. When I got my first puppy, I called her "Roxette" and since then every puppy I kept was named after a Roxette-song.
Marie was a part of my life, her voice is as familiar to me as the voices of my relatives. She really was a brave and powerful woman, a tiny person with an outstanding voice! I'm really happy I had the chance to watch her on stage several times. Marie will always be our queen!
My deepest thoughts are with her family and friends!
Vila i frid, Marie. Alltid saknad, aldrig glömd!
I can't believe that you're not here anymore! Your songs where an era of romanticism that will be in my heart forever. Now the beings that have left us will enjoy your voice. I was lucky to be in the same time as you, now angels are the lucky ones. RIP and enjoy your journey!
Iam very very sad today. For more than 20 years Marie's voice was my support. My deepest condolences and best wishes may go out to her family and friends. One of the brightest lights in music had gone out yesterday.
Dear Marie, you went and will continue to be an icon of my adolescence. Your beautiful voice accompanied thousands of moments, leading me to different sensations and memories. I was lucky to see you and listen to you in the '90s and in 2012 when Roxette came to Buenos Aires. It is a great sadness for me and for many argentines to say goodbye. Rest in peace, you gave everything. Kisses to heaven.
My first memory of Marie (Roxette) was during her live performance in Melbourne back in 1990. I am incapable of boogie due to my shyness but the moment Marie sang, my confidence soar and my whole body was moving to every song belted out on that memorable evening. Ever since I am a convert, Roxette is my music religion. The passing of Marie is incredibly sad. Thank you Marie for stopping by, singing for us, touching our hearts, and you will stay in my memory forever and ever.
Thank you for sharing your life and love of music around the world.
Went to everyone of your concerts held in Brisbane Australia and you always preformed and gave your best. Even when times were harder for you. Will always treasue these memories of seeing you on stage and hearing you live. Things will never be the same now that physical you are not here. My condolences to your family and friends.
Infinite thanks, for the gift of your voice, your warmth, your dedication and strength. Thank you for having accompanied my adolescence and adults.
Your voice always in the soul and in the heart.
Blessings and strong hug to the family.
Dear Marie! I just want to say THANK YOU. You have brought so much joy and happiness to my life. How I always looked forward to a new song! To hear your amazing voice! I wish you peace.
