Roxette songs named “Essentials” by iTunes

PHILADELPHIA - Two Roxette songs have earned a place on iTunes new listing of hot songs, dubbed "iTunes Essentials."

  The iTunes Essentials listing picks 75 songs from each calendar, dividing them into three different categories: The Basics, Next Step and Deep Cuts. The Basics are representative of the biggest hits of the year, the Next Step category are listings of songs that you might not have heard before and Deep Cuts are sort of lost gems – hit songs that you somehow missed.

  Roxette's "Joyride" earned a place as the #1 Deep Cuts track from 1991, while "The Look" placed #5 in 1989’s Next Step field.

  Somehow, "It Must Have Been Love," the #2 track of 1990 according to Billboard, missed out in the listing of songs from that year.

  Of course, Roxette fans almost certainly have these "essential" tracks in their libraries, but if you’d don’t, they can be downloaded from the iTunes service.

  The top download track there from Roxette is "Listen to Your Heart."
