Marie Fredriksson's "Där du andas," the theme song for the movie Arn - Riket vid vägens slut - debuts this week right at #1 on the Swedish singles chart. This is Marie's first #1 solo single ever! Congratulations!
STOCKHOLM - Per Gessle and Mats MP Persson will travel to London October 7 to receive yet another "Million-Air" award for "Listen to Your Heart."
"Listen to Your Heart" has been played over 4.000.000 times on US radio, same as "It Must Have Been Love" in 2005. According to BMI.com, based on an average length of three minutes, one million airplays is the equivalent of 50,000 hours or 5.7 years of continuous airplay. Top Million-Air songs are for instance The Police's "Every Breath You Take" and The Beatles' "Yesterday" with both over 8.000.000 plays.
Roxette has eight BMI awarded songs.
Per Gessle is obviously very pleased with this and comments "Yay!"
For reasons yet unknown Roxette's US #2 single from 1989, "Dangerous," has entered the Australian download chart at #30. "The Oz people are famous for their exquisite taste. Marie and myself are very happy indeed" comments Per to The Daily Roxette.
