Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

Rockabilly version of “The Look” recorded by The Baseballs

Written by sleepingSingle on June 28, 2009 to .

BERLIN - The Baseballs, a German rockabilly/rock 'n' roll cover band (think Elvis Presley, think Stray Cats), has recorded Roxette's "The Look" for its new album "Strike."

Digger, the frontman, said in an interview in Münstersche Zeitung that "we wanted to give the album a personal touch. "The Look" was chosen by me. It refers to my musical beginning. It was my sister's first vinyl LP, the first song I could play on the keyboards."

Great cover! Can’t wait to hear the whole version. I personally happy every time there were band/singer covered Roxette’s song, meaning that Roxette actually influenced many musician and I am proud to be Roxette fan. So far, none of the cover (that I got a chance to listen) destroyed the song. Of course, none of them (yet) are better than the original but definitely not suck either.

You can listen to the whole version on YouTube:


Love it!!!!!!

Great cover version! Very rocky :)

What a delicious cover! SO Elvis/Stray Cats... I crave it!

LOL i like it attually :-)

love it :)

Bought the album via iTunes 2 days ago! It’s really great if you like that style! Prefer many of the songs to the originals (Umbrella...).

Just bought the album and it is fantastic (you can get it on Itunes uk) the covers are amazing! They do ’I don’t feel like dancin” which I thought couldn’t get much more camp? I was wrong! The look feels so different, I’m so happy listenening to the whole album! x

I stumbled across this on youtube a while back and couldn’t find it again.

Sounds great!

really funny this version of the look!
congratulations Baseballs!

I like it. it’s different! it would get a bit annoying after a while but its fairly good!
