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, 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!"


How much do you get for each song played in royalties?

“Yay!” - I agree.

En pojke reser till månen - en annan siktar mot solen - en tredje kommer aldrig iväg

Hehe, yay! indeed :-)


But, there are lot’s of better Rox-songs than LTYH. Anyway...congratulations ;)

Dorchester Hotel 7th October Per... Why is my brain ticking overtime all of a sudden!

The same way as Per I say: Yayyyyyyy!!!
Hope to see Per and Marie receiving this award together :)

It seems the radios are not that fond of “The Look” and “Joyride”... I’d like to know if these songs have ever got an award of this kind.

I’ve been trying to find that out, but the only thing I did find was that eight Roxette songs have been awarded this way. Search for more info.

Looking on that site, there are loads of Per tracks which have never been released? Where are they all??

In the vault? ;)

Yeah, I know that - Just a shame that we’ll probably never ever here the song called Ghost In The House. I’ve always been intriuged by that one!

Oj....there is no space left on the walls in Leif’s Lounge at the entrance....and NOW??? *LOL*

“There’s a ghost in the house. Where, where, is it in another room?”

@Tev - is that a line from the song, or are you taking the michael? :-)

“she’s looking like a ringaxxxxx.... ????’s wearing loud clothes....” ;)

I think people are winding me up and just quoting random words to get me thinking that its the songs! Hmmph!

How about the UK fan meeting in London on October 7th with Per as the special guest!

pwbbounce said: is that a line from the song, or are you taking the michael? :-)

Given what’s happend in the past, i’d say Tev knows something more about that song than he’s letting on :-)
