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.

Thank 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 time I have ever heard Marie's angelic voice was in 2003. I was immediately awestruck by the rhythm and lyrics of "It Must Have Been Love" . I was very lucky to have gone to Roxette's concert hosted at Hong Kong in 2012. Never have I thought that would be the last time Marie sang in front of me. May Marie's voice live forever in everyone's memory.

When I watched the Grammys I noticed that tribute was paid to Marie. Although I didn’t follow her closely, two songs touched me: Listen to Your Heart and It Must have Been Love. We lost a real songbird. May she sing forever in heaven.

I have been a fan of Roxette since the beginning in 1986. I finally saw my first Roxette Show in Bimbagen Winery in the Hunter Valley, NSW Australia on 2/28/2015 with my Mother and a friend. It was an great show. I am a Swedish Citizen and have travelled to Stockholm, Sweden many times over the last 35 years. I cried when I heard the news that Marie had passed away. I wish her family peace and comfort in their grief. -Patrik

Roxette was pretty much THE band to listen to, when I was in higher primary-/ lower secondary school. Thanks for the memories.

You were very talented, brilliant and I will miss your voice singing. I feel sad because you don't live anymore and I couldn't go to any show. Anyway I thank you for everything you did in your life. A star will not be forgotten.

Igår kväll bevittnade jag något vackert. Jobbar på en akutvårdsavdelning på ett medelstort sjukhus i Sverige. Igår eftermiddag tyckte jag att jag hörde bekanta toner på avdelningen (från ett patientrum). Jobbade vidare, hörde samma sak från ett annat rum. Lyssnade lite extra, förstod att hyllningsprogrammet för Marie gick i repris. Sen hände samma sak på rum efter rum; nästan alla patienter valde att se samma sak på tv. Maries låtar fyllde tillslut hela avdelningen. Så känslosamt men samtidigt helt underbart att se hur mycket hennes musik betytt för människor i alla åldrar. Önskar SÅ att all denna kärlek når hela vägen till dig Marie var du nu än befinner dig ❤️ .

I only sadly learned of your passing while watching the Grammys’ “In Memoriam” segment on January 26, 2020. The music of Roxette spoke to me during the band’s heyday, and it still resonates with me today. Marie, your soulful vocals continue to stir my emotion as the words fall on my heart. Thank you for your music and your light. Vila i frid, Marie! ❤️

She still lives in voice, lyrics, music, words. Interviews, documentaries, images. And how powerful her production and delivery is starting from the early days. How strong and real, yet kind she appears in those moments where she doesn't have to pretend, but just to be herself. She loved life, she dreamed big. She conquered many of her dreams. Yet, it feels she would've had so much more to give. Some much more to live. At some point you have to move on, live in the present, bounce back. Just like she did when ever life slammed her hard. But her career, life, journey along with Per was unbelievable. And when ever one returns to those moments, music, images, everything comes back to life. Very powerfully. The next strong feeling is to realize that this history is in the books. Story ended a while a go and there won't be any encores. And this brings me to the big questions of life, maybe stronger than ever. Facts that is somewhat difficult to comprehend. And keeps you awake at night every now and then.

Marie, Sua voz nos tocou de uma forma única. Senti muito por ter Nos deixado, mas você nos deixou um legado de amor e boas Lembranças, pois suas canções nos tocaram, nos embalaram nos amores que vivem os. Sempre terei você em meu coração como parte da minha vida. Amo você!

Ich bin auch 1958 geboren. Sie war eine bemrkenswerte, tolle Frau. Ruhe sanft Marie, mir kommen die Tränen.

Dear Marie, dear Per, I was a little boy when I heard the amazing voice, the incredible music on the radio. It was a song "You Don't Understand Me" which I then played 1000 times over and over. Over time, I found that the beautiful music that fits me opens the way to my heart. My heart always shines when I hear beautiful music and voice. Now I am on my way to my heart, and I thank you with all my heart for being part of it. I love you very much!

I was a teenager when I started to listen to Roxette and I felt in love with Marie´s voice. It was incredible, I was shocked. I could view Roxette live in Argentina in 1992,1995 and in 2012. I will miss you so much! Adrian

Dearest Marie, I was 12 years old when I heard "The Look" on the Radio. While I liked the song instantly, I was wondering who was singing these lovely female vocals. I bought the Look Sharp album later on and was a huge fan from then on. I remember secretly listening to the Joyride album with my best friend during religion and art classes in school thanks to my new walkman 😉 I first saw you perform live in 1991 and then 1995, 2001 and 2015. It was always a blast to attend those concerts. Your incredible voice, this great band, your and Per's energy on stage. The strong bond between Per and you...I saw the Tribute Concert on Saturday and though everyone was giving his/her best to sing your songs, nobody could really come close to your voice and your presence on stage. I am constantly thinking of your family and friends and hope they will find comfort somehow through each other. Thank you for always being part of my life, for all those goosebumps while listening to your voice, for your kind soul. May god bless you and your loved ones! Franzi

Saw the wonderful program in Swedish TV yesterday remembering Marie. Marie has always been a huge part in my music life and Roxette then became my no 1 favorite band, when I saw them live, many years ago at "Sjöhistoriska" at Djurgården, Stockholm. I miss you so much Marie and I will remeber you and your music for all my life. Thinking about you family living not that far away from me. Anders -57, Täby, Sweden

It has been started with "The look" - my passion for your wonderful music Marie an Per. All over this more than 30 years you have been every time a sort of part of my life. I am proud that I had the chance to see you several times live in concert.. I feel that Marie will stay with us through the songs which are staying forever...especially your emotional live performance "Spending my time"....
