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 consider Roxette to be the greatest duo the world has ever known or will know. I have all the recordings and pictures of Marie and Perr but mostly Marie. She truly was the most talented female entertainer in history. Marie was not pretty or cute she represented true beauty. She didnt give up nor did her fans give her up but both continued to the end. She is not forgotten and never will be because her works live on after her. She was the most special person I have ever known.
Although I was only a few years younger than Marie and Per, I really discovered Roxette too late. I only knew them for the most famous songs. It is only a few years ago that I really discovered the talent and skill of Marie and Per, an exceptional duo. I listen to their songs every day, they make me feel good. I always follow Per but I also really miss Marie a lot.
Marie marcó mi vida, junto a Per, desde muy joven. Per era composición, Marie voz... Una voz que siempre acompañará. Siempre. Hay muy pocas cantantes con la capacidad de transmitir como ella. La vida no es sencilla, ni bella (lo extraño es el día que piensas que ha sido así), pero con buena compañía se lleva mejor. Music save my life.
The first time I listened to a Roxette song was in 1990. I was 29 years old. Now after more than 30 years I'm still listening to your songs and each time I feel sad, but still enjoy the music that reminds me of you and all those years.
I miss you Marie! I miss you Roxette.
You'll be always in my heart.
Tak bardzo za Tobą tęsknię, Marie!
J'ai connus Marie Fredriksson et Roxette dans les années 80 / 90. Je n'étais pas encore un adolescent . Un de mes oncles était animateur dans une radio française. Il m'a fait découvrir ce groupe fantastique. Depuis, a chaque fois que je ne suis pas au mieux , j'écoute les albums de Roxette. Comme beaucoup Joyride est une de mes chansons préferée. Quand je suis vraiment au plus mal , j'écoute Love is all, de l'album crash boum bang. Je ne connais pas suffisamment l'anglais pour comprendre les paroles, mais J'adore cette chanson.
Merci beaucoup , Marie, pour tout ces souvenirs que je me remémore en entendant votre merveilleuse voix. Maintenant que je suis un adulte, avec des enfants, j'aimerai qu'ils connaissent votre musique, et le bien que vous pouviez faire grace a celle ci.
Merci encore pour toute ces années d'écoute
I adored you from the time I was 6 years old and first saw the "listen to your heart" music video.
Your presence was so warm and kind and on top of it all you were absolutely beautiful!
I was so taken by you. And as years went on and I became a teenager, I needed much comfort and emotional support. You, through your music were always there for me. I could feel your love, your compassion, your strength and your wisdom. You will always be my favourite woman, singer and role model. You were unafraid to be yourself and you looked so good doing it! Being you made this world a better place, especially for me.
I have tattooed a rose to represent you and the beautiful role and impact you had and still have on my life on my right collar bone. This rose was inspired by the "Fading like a flower" song and nusic video and it's how I keep you with me.
Maire, you are beautiful. You always will be. You are brave, you are strong and you are forever in my heart. I now sing your songs with pride, fondness, love and beautiful memories of which you are a part. I will never forget all you have taught me. Your impact on me is unchangeable, irrevocable and forever. Until we meet one day. I love you.
Thank you for the music you made.
It took a long time to relief the pain of grief after you died.
But please notice that it's getting better and better.
It must have been love is chiseled into my heart for decades after my favorite girl of my live 30 years back in time played it from vinyl to tell me that I have to forget about loving her. It never worked out.
I can let run tears every time I hear this song - every single drop is for you now, Marie, not for her anymore.
There's just one other song amongs millions which floods my eyes: The last unicorn.
You must have been my last unicorn, Marie. Every drop's for you in heaven.
Per just said on TV there will be never a replacement for you. I fully agree.
Thank you Marie for your voice and songs. We miss you.
Thank you Marie,
we are still Listen To Your Heart, there's nothing else we can do.
We miss Roxette.
GOD Bless you Marie!!! What an incredible voice you had. We still have your voice from the many songs you left behind with Per Gessle, as well as your own music but sadly the world lost a very talented lady. I loved Roxette's music as a teenager and I still love love it 40 years later. I loved The Look, Listen to your heart, Dressed for Success, Joyride just to name a few favorites. There are plenty more!!!! It was so wonderful to see you return to Roxette in 2012 or 2013, in Amsterdam, I think. What a treat it was to have one of our favorite bands back. .Thank you, Marie and Per for giving us Roxette GOD Bless over you and your families. May you rest in peace, Marie Fredriksson. We will miss you... Christina
Fue un gran golpe el saber que había partido una gran hermosa cantante,que nos deja un gran vacío porque estuvo desde mi juventud hasta ahora en mis altas y en mis bajas con sus grandes y exitosas interpretaciones , nunca dió escándalos siempre fue una gran guerrera ante la enfermedad que padecía, nos deja su gran ejemplo de vida , nunca te olvidare porque estás tatuada en mi alma y seguirás viva por siempre , ROXETTE es mi gran amor de juventud, junto con Per Gessle hicieron que la música pop fuera diferente, por eso siempre serán los número 1 a nivel mundial.
I lost and found myself listening to your songs day and night from the window of my lonely bedroom. You gave me all the solitude, love, care and attention no one else bothered to give to me. You ARE and WILL FOREVER live in MY HEART <3
How many memories listening "It must have been love", "You don'r understand me" and many others...my youth runs away and it's so sad to know that one of my best female voice isn't here anymore! Ciao Marie your voice and your songs will always live in my heart.
Dear Marie, thanks for all this years and songs, you are part of my life and my feelings R.I.P.
dear Marie Fredriksson....OMG
I LOVED You and LOVED ROXETTE!

God Bless Her and God Bless Roxette!
