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.

About a year ago I found myself singing a bit of the song "Dressed for Success." I hadn't heard the song in years, and proceeded to watch it many times on Youtube. Since then, I've watched and listened to most of Roxette's great songs, which I grew up listening to. I was very sad to find out about Marie's passing. She had incredible gifts - not only her amazing voice, but her energy, passion, and stage presence shine through as well. A true star, and will continue to shine.

Als ich eine Jugendliche war, habe ich dich bewundert. Deine Ausstrahlung, deine Coolness und deine tiefen Gefühle, die du mit deiner tollen Stimme rübergebracht hast. Du warst ein Idol und Vorbild, eine großartige Musikerin und eine tolle und wunderbare Frau. Danke für alles. Du hast mich tief berührt und ich bin erschüttert über die Nachricht deines Todes. Du warst eine Kämpferin. Wir werden dich nie vergessen. In Liebe Tamara

I was very sad when I read about the passing of Marie Fredriksson. Before the word 'diva' became such a derogatory term in the American vernicular, Marie personified the original definition by her impassioned expressive emotive singing. In other words, she was one of the BEST in the business.. She and Per made a wonderful team together, not only was the music great but it proved that simple basic pop-rock can truly be FUN and catchy, not banal, pedestrian and dumb. Roxette has enriched my life since my college days and their songs are truly uplifting and they still matter and say something to me about my life. They remind me of such good times.
'Dangerous' takes me back to when the Eighties turned to the Nineties and the Cold War ended peacefully, as a recently discharged military.veteran who had served during the Cold War that point in time was historical and its lyrical theme of male affirmation in resisting temptation meant a lot to me when I was younger. It's mature. And 'It Must Have Been Love' is one of my alltime favorite ballads, Marie's singing really shines on that one! Wow.
Roxette is one of those unique bands where their whole catalog is good. They never made a bad album and their music has always been a pleasure to listen to. Per is a terrific musician and songwriter of his own merit but Marie is as well and the two together made the greatest pop-rock band Sweden has ever produced. And their music is entertaining to this day. God Bless You Marie, R.I.P. and thank you Per as well. You will not be forgotten. ROXETTE FOREVER

You are so missed every day, I was in my early twenties in the early 90's and it was a volatile time for myself and a few friends. Your voice and it's power played out loudly a lot!
Thank you for the music, it lives on and never ages. Hope you are surrounded by your heroes and are jamming with them!
