 Roxette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Though they have claimed that the original aim of Roxette was to apply Gessle's pop compositions to Fredriksson's vocals, they also claim that the spontaneously-written and -recorded "The Look," the group's worldwide breakthrough hit, came as a surprise with Gessle taking lead.
Some longtime Roxette and Per Gessle fans have contended as well that Roxette was not able to compete, especially in the American market, with the changing tide of popular music.
In early 1993, Roxette became the first non-native-English speaking artists to be featured on MTV's Unplugged series, though the songs from the performance were never released on an official Unplugged album.

 Roxette
I was vaguely impressed with Roxette’s first album Look Sharp, feeling most of its strength lay in the Prince penned single, "The Look," as opposed to the syrupy ballads and MTV ready pop clichés that seemed to fill out the rest of the collection.
Roxette’s music is amusing on a number of levels; I’d like to clarify that point before I go any further.
However, Roxette are not simply amusing for their foreign appropriation of American names and sounds.

Despite the fact that Roxette have scored many hit singles, their latest albums were, according to some, not promoted properly by their record company and some albums were not even released in the USA at all, or released in altered form: for example Crash!

 Roxette   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
It's tempting to write Roxette off as nothing more than a shallow pop-rock act of the late '80s, but their shameless hooks are precisely what makes them so enjoyable.
Roxette has a knack for writing extremely catchy and simple hooks and melodies that are sweet but not saccharine; it's radio-friendly pop, but the hooks don't wear thin with repeated plays.
The duo of guitarist Per Gessle and vocalist Marie Fredriksson released an album in 1986 that didn't display much of their talents, but the infectious follow-up, 1988's Look Sharp!, brought them to the top of the charts in America and England; 1991's Joyride was almost equally successful.
