“Milk & Toast & Honey” becomes a #1 hit in Brazil

As previously reported, "Milk and Toast and Honey" is included in the soundtrack of a Brazilian soap opera. The song was played for the first time on Saturday's episode (May 19). The soundtrack CD goes on sale May 25th and is available for pre-order in a few "virtual stores" such as Som Livre.

Along with the Roxette song, the CD also features tracks by Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, Dido, REM, Eric Clapton and others.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Roxette and EMI are contemplating a June promotional appearance by Per and Marie in Brazil, but a final decision has yet to be reached. "Milk and Toast and Honey" is getting a LOT of airplay on Brazilian radio stations, and has even reached #1 on some charts!

  Ronaldo Mouro, who maintains the 'Pop Brasil Top 100' airplay chart, tells The Daily Roxette that the reason M&T&H reached the top of the chart so quickly is that it's being played in all parts of the country and that people still remember the other successes of Roxette in Brazil. "They have thousands of fans in all the cantos of the country," he said. "In Brazil, Roxette is known and respected in the same way as ABBA, a-ha, Madonna, and Michael Jackson."
