Roxette still rocks!!!

Do you still remember this Swedish pop duo?

Per Gessle and Marie Fredrikssen or popularly known as ROXETTE back in the late 80's and early 90's still kicks everybody's ass when it comes to music! Its been so long that we dont have much news buzz on them but thanks to the power of internet (yes, to Google search, YouTube and other music sharing site), this awesome duo are still very much active in the music scene but now only in Europe. After a very successful reunion only this year, Per and Marie is preparing some new materials for their upcoming album!I remember when I was in high school, everytime their song THE LOOK played on the radio I cant help myself to rampa or walk like a model as if I was in a catwalk!...The song was even used in a talent beauty search with the same title in a local noon time show back then.

While waiting for their new CD, lets try to reminisce their string of hits from their past albums. This song is probably their biggest hit and included in a movie soundtrack that launched the career of hollywood actress JULIA ROBERTS. From the film
Pretty Woman, here's the live unplugged version of IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE (1990):

From the album Look Sharp! (1988) here's another favorite of mine, DANGEROUS.
