“Time goes by so quickly. It’s not that long ago we spent days and nights in my tiny apartment in Halmstad, listening to music we loved, sharing impossible dreams. And what a dream we eventually got to share!
Thank you, Marie, thanks for everything. You were an outstanding musician, a master of the voice, an amazing performer. Thanks for painting my black and white songs in the most beautiful colours. You were the most wonderful friend for over 40 years. I’m proud, honoured and happy to have been able to share so much of your time, talent, warmth, generosity and sense of humour. All my love goes out to you and your family. Things will never be the same.

Of course, It was a great comeback after so many years. Many of us, and probably you too Per, thought at some point that Roxette was over after Marie's first diagnosis. It was a comeback for Roxette, and in addition, It was a comeback for the Roxette fans too. We made so many good and cool friends during those charm school days, and we had the chance to get together with a few old ones as well. What a joy, just because a mouth harp! 😄

Great album, I love it. Way out, Speak to me and especially Dream on are my favourites. I've always liked the "power"-side of Roxette. But of course, what was the main thing with this album, was the fact that Marie was able and wanted to come back and go on. I personally prayed for her and hoped she'll get well, but like you and many others I didn't think we'll hear new Roxette music...I am so thankful I was was wrong, especially after I read her book and know how her comeback was important for her.

I 've got it. I don't have the next.

Very different roxette sound but I liked it too. Way out is probably my favorite from that album

Yeah the favorite song of this album. But never grow up on the radio.

Of course. I have this album in my home. I love.

Obvio, en este tema dejan ver toda la versatilidad musical que siempre caracterizó a Roxette. Únicos.

Many times I thought Roxette were finished... was so grateful with each album... I remember thinking 'one wish' was final.. so happy when charm school came out! I really felt Roxette kept making music for their strong fan base... and I am very appreciative! ❤

Love it! For more like this one! ; )

Yes. It was a single. It was not easy to find singles in 2011/2012. 🎵

Yes, haven't forgotten it, cool song, interesting lyrics.

always, with pleasure....

Yes one my favs❤

Yes!! Great album. Have on very expensive vinyl 🙏 but sounds great. PS track 2 is longer on vinyl than on CD 😀😍

One of my absolute favorites.

Yes cool one from Charm School 🥁🎸🎼🎼

Love it! One of my faves on Charm School ❤

Yes! Very very very good! 😍😍

Yes I love this song and the album. The Roxette returns!

Oh yeah! I remember that’s being almost ten years I was waiting for a new CD. Só I listened a snippet of each track on Amazon, I think. The chorus of this song always came to my mind since then

Thoroughly enjoyed this album 😊

Wikipedia offers a curious insight! "The song features a distinctive introduction, performed on a mouth harp. Gessle described it as an obvious album opener, and said: "We needed a cool intro, and we had fun thinking about what [we could use]. We joked about having the sound of a cat giving birth, or a dying cat, or something stupid like that. Then someone suggested a mouth harp. It sounded really weird, so we went with that. It felt like a nice comeback for Roxette: the first sound you hear from us after ten years is a mouth harp." HAVING THE SOUND OF A CAT GIVING BIRTH, ya'll!!😂

Bassflow remix, boom!💥

Gracias a éste disco tuve los mejores días de mi vida, cómo no recordarlo 💕💕💕

My favourite song🎧📀😘❤️

Cool trousers. You may laugh now but I really loved all your outfits back then. And hairstyles..😁❤

I like these oldies 😀 I wonder how it was possible to do without laughing that they were singing playback without microphone stand 😀

This is a cool song. My husband told me, he thought the chorus is something like "dressed for sex" or something to do with "breasts":-D and he thought "oh my, what is this band for?":-D

Oh Per, you wore the coolest clothes and had the coolest hair. Very cute! This is my favourite Rox era..... keeping finding these please?

Amazing show in Norway 🎶🎉🥰

Best RECORD ALL TIME FOR ME DRESS FOR SUCCESS🎤🎹🎻💋💄🎼

Always did like those trousers, it's great that you still have them.

Just listening to your first album, I still love the song Sleeping Single. Thank you for the music.

it's actually amazing to think how awesome the song eventually came out to be despite that Marie was tired of it and mad when she did it.♥️♥️ the song suits Marie fantastically and the video shows it very well.

Geeking on the "oldies" on the weekend. I do the same thing to your stuff. Weekends, week nights, at the office....

Per, hm, you are thinking about old times, me too... Where are you? Always and forever #polishheartsforroxette. Be safe, take care ❤️❤️❤️

My favorite song. 😍🎶🎸💖

Marie chybi moc krasny hlas atmosfera na koncertech byla uzasna

I miss you Queen of voice

Love your clothes. Great song.

Linda Buchan remember the lyrics we sang to this?

Yeah yeah yeah!!

🤗🤗

❤️
