In their letter they say “’The Look for Roxette’ contains an advert section in which you are invited to promote your business. Due to the book’s unique content it will be an instant bestseller among all Roxette collectors and fans.” Contact Premium Publishing right away, if you’re interested!

The discography contains all the solo releases by Per and Marie, all the releases of groups they have been members in, as well as all the world wide releases by Roxette. In the price guide section every release has been given a value in a scale from 1 to 10 depending how hard it is to find each item. The book will be out next month and it will be bound in a “beautiful laminated G5 size cover”. The book contains approximately 300 pages.

Written by roxeteer on August 8, 1999 to .

Finland-based heart rate monitor manufacturer Polar has adopted “Listen to your heart” as their new slogan. However, Roxette’s song with the same title isn’t used in their advertisements, as far as I know.

“Crashing guitars will be back”

Written by roxeteer on August 7, 1999 to .

Official Roxette Fanclub had an opportunity to talk with Marie and Per after they had appeared on German TV show. At the moment it seems that there won’t be HaveANiceTour. “It would be too far from the album release”, Marie and Per say. However, they are already planning the next Roxette album and revealed that “the crashing guitars might be brought in use again for some songs”.

German fans will be delighted as Roxette will be back in Germany in mid-August!
