Roxette pops back for a new joyride

PER Gessle deliberately evaded the past. "I stopped writing Roxette records," Gessle says. "I avoided it to become myself again."

Roxette, the Swedish pop duo of Gessle and singer Marie Fredriksson, dominated for a decade with hits including The Look, It Must Have Been Love, Listen To Your Heart and Joyride, before illness halted them.

In 2002, Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumour. After surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she won her fight against cancer three years later.

Meanwhile, Gessle and Fredriksson released solo records.

Two years ago, during a solo show, Gessle asked Fredriksson to join him on stage to sing The Look and It Must Have Been Love.

"To be honest, she was nervous and didn't have that self-confidence," Gessle says. "But the reception she got was amazing. People were cheering and crying. They knew it was special."

Roxette had reformed.

Per Gessle - En händig man - how to use tools ...

Per Gessle is very good at putting songs together, a handy man, we can say. It is also the name of his latest album. But how handy is he when it comes about tools?

Per: I don’t know the name of this. I don’t know what it can be, it looks like a hexagon used by the strange guys to make a sign on their forehead.

Reporter: Such a key is used when you change the tires.

Per: Really? When you change tires? Aha… No, I haven’t done this, but it looks very difficult. I think I can manage this. (…) All say that this is a parmesan knife; you can put this into parmesan and get perfect balls that you can put on brochutto.

Reporter: That instrument is used when you change a door, so that it is straight.

Anna and her adventure with Roxette

Taxi driver: No, you don’t need that; I can manage without it… Soooo, Per Gessle, Roxette… They are very well known; also in Romania they are very popular. 

Anna: Really?? So you listen to them there…

Taxi driver: Yes, of course, I heard them many times!

Anna: Do you have any favourite song?
