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.

Rest in peace Marie. I remember your music as the most important music of my youth. You both did great things for a lot of people. God bless you.
Special Lady, special voice, special feeling...
I remember seeing Marie when she was in Ottawa.
It was such a great concert! Marie was such a great talent!
I was lucky to be seated in the front row at the TD Center in Ottawa.
I got to talk to her for a few minutes.
She was a great lady ! 😉😄😂
Marie... I love you. Having made the moments of my teenage years some of the best I will ever be grateful for. My heart goes out to you in the life beyond where I know you will be singing with the voice of the angels that you bought to the earth.
My heartfelt feelings to Per, knowing the relationship you had - as well as both families.
Please know that I am always playing your recordings over and over- and this will never change.
Marie... and Roxette... have changed my life for the good for the rest of my life.
My love and thanks <3 <3 <3
Remembering her on her May 30th birthday! All the best to surviving bandmates, friends and family!
I believe that God will take good care of you. I wish you roxette peace.
I found the vinyl album "Look sharp!" a couple of days ago in a shop in Warsaw!, I was 13 years old when I bought my first copy in Mexico. Marie, your legacy will always be with us, your incomparable voice always rings in my head just remembering any song, Roxette! One of the best bands ever! We love you! May 9, 2023.
MARIÉ FREDRIKSSON ROXETTE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS... SALUDOS MAYO 05/2023
Longing is a feeling that, when it doesn't fit in the heart, runs through the eyes. I love you!
Agradeço a você Marie por te dado um pouco mais de sentido à minha vida através da sua voz. Sempre estarás em meu coração. Agora quem aprecia sua doce voz são os anjos. Obrigado.
I have been a fan of Roxette for so many years and it is sad that Marie has left us. Both of you have brought joy to the world through your music. My favorite two songs are Joyride and It Must have been Love. The latter because I remember hearing it in the movie theater in 1990 for the first time. The former because of that beautiful whistling section toward the end of the song. Every time I hear the song Joyride I whistle with the song. I just hope it makes Marie smile up there in the clouds.
Gracias por su musica, acompañaron la mejor etapa de mi vida. Puede verte en la Ciudad de Rosario en 2011. Fue una Gran Noche.

"What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue?
When everything I'll ever do, I'll do for you
And I go, "LaLaLaLaLa"
She's got the look."
I have been a fan for the movie "Pretty Woman" and its song "It must have been love". Thanks for such a beautiful song and its music... loves hearing it.. RIP Marie..
Thank you for such vocals, emotion, passion and lyrics, but most of all, thanks you so much for giving me an and girlfriend (of 31 years) and now my wife, a moment in time when we discovered teh right music for us at the right time. .... Listen to your heart? You made me do it. RIP Marie
