Billboard mentions Roxette

Roxette has earned a mention in Billboard's look at the milestones in the history of its Hot 100 countdown. The group's name comes in the same breath as the Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Madonna.

"Listen to Your Heart," the 706th song to ever hit number one on the famed chart, was the first chart topper to be available only as a cassette single. All prior number ones had been available for purchase on vinyl.

The nostalgic look back was prompted when Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" became the 1,000th number one in the chart's history.
