“Opportunity Nox” goes straight to #2 and #11 on Swedish charts

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) - Roxette's latest single, "Opportunity Nox", goes straight to the top positions on the Swedish radio show "Tracks" charts.

  "This is great," says Per to Aftonbladet. "We've been around since 1986, which is amazingly long in this business and I'm happy every time something works out like this. It's especially nice this time, because the song is an honest 3-chord track, a descendant of the songs I wrote when I was a teenager." Roxette has had over 40 songs on that radio show and is the biggest act ever on "Tracks".

  The single also enters the sales chart, at #11, which is ten spots below "The Centre of the Heart" which shot straight into #1.

  Currently, Per is writing songs in both English and Swedish. He also says it really looks like there is going to be yet another Gyllene Tider tour in summer 2004, when the band is celebrating their 25th anniversary. Gyllene Tider will have a meeting this fall to discuss further about a possible reunion.
