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.

I was just a little boy and I heard a different song at a friend's house, different from what I was used to hearing ... the music was vibrant, it was different. It wasn't long before I was totally interested and I headed towards the record player in which I came across a photo of a woman, a man and an elephant ... it was Joyride. I never heard the song the same way again. So many songs, so many moments listening for hours and hours on my old walkman, the tapes, singing along. Roxette opened my ears to a different world, to different sounds. From then on things would never be the same. It was my childhood years in the eighties until today at the age of 39. Thank you Roxette! For everything. For fun, sensitivity, well-played music, well-written music, well-sung music. Thank you very much for showing me what real music is, thank you for being part of the singer that I am today. Best band ever. Marie, speechless. Your unique voice made me love the songs for all this years. Sweet voice and in the same time strong. May we meet one day and remember such good things! Love. Michael Costa
Agradeço a Deus pela vida de cada um dos envolvidos no projeto Roxette que alcançaram milhões de corações com suas letras e arranjos. Em especial ao anjo Marie, uma das maiores vozes de todos os tempos.
Gostaria que essa mensagem chegasse a você em uma outra circunstância Marie mas o destino ao menos permitiu eternizar sua música, sua voz e sua interpretação únicas em meu coração. Tenho certeza que fora recebida nos céus com muita alegria.
Que Deus conforte seus familiares e entes queridos. Amaremos você por toda a eternidade.
Descanse em paz nos braços de Deus
With love, J.P.Barreto

Paldies par skaisto mūziku, bērnību kura pagāja tavas burvīgas mūzikas pavadījumā. Lai tev vieglas smiltis.

Roxette forever an a day. Roxette has been important part of my life. Much courage to the Marie and Per'sfamilies and the friends. Always be a Joyrider.
Thanks Marie, for your voice, your music and your albums as Roxette.
The years of youth are now over ...
Marie and Roxette was the band in my youth, the first kiss, the first dance and many many happy memories live on. Thanks to you Marie! Thank you for the wonderful time that I think back after more than 25 years and will accompany me until the end of my life.
She had the finest voice. There will never be another like her.
Thank you Marie for every thing you did for music. You will allways be in my heart. I am so sad.... but I know you are in better place now. Roxette has been my fuel to move forward in life. RIp Marie!
So sad to hear Marie passed away. I have been in love with the music of Roxette since I was a teenagers. Over the years, always kept listening to it and loving it... and will continue to do so.
ПОМНИМ, ЛЮБИМ, СКОРБИМ
Your music has played a major role in my life. Strength to all relatives.
Thank you for the greatest melodic music you made. I'am sad, never can see you live again. Heros of my teenage-time. Your music will live forever im my heart.

You will always be the great love of my life.
Wherever you are, I hope you have found peace and a lot of music. Wherever you are, your great voice fills everything. I did not know you in life, but from the first second I fell in love, you have always seemed to me a magnificent artist ... as much as your partner Per remains, two great, two enormous, two brilliant stars. In the future, when my candle goes out, and I also have to leave, I would like to land close to you, to meet you and to continue listening to you sing for all eternity. Always live in our hearts, always Marie, always "Soul". Kisses from the heart.
Saknaden släpper inte taget, du fattas oss hela tiden. Har så svårt att förstå att du är borta. En del av mig kommer nog att sörja dig för resten av mitt liv. Älskade Marie, jag önskar dig all frid och ro och hoppas samtidigt att du rockar röven av alla däruppe! Tänker på dig och din familj väldigt ofta.
Музыка моего детства, музыка уходящей эпохи... Мари была потрясающим человеком. Спасибо за частичку счастливой юности, в которую я каждый раз возвращаюсь, слушая эти песни.
Listen to your heart...
I have been here many times before, just reading the entries, unsure of what I should say. Feeling sad about losing you. Losing Roxette. Your music, your voice and your spirit will live on.
thanks for the music marie. may you ever walk in beauty
