I wasn't going to list their six dozen late nineties minor singles.

DANGEROUS

I have not heard anything after "Almost Unreal" (from Super Mario Bros the movie).

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:03 (nine years ago) link

Yeah I don't even recognize most of those tbh.

12. "Speed Boat to Cuba"

from the Miami Vice sounddtrack.

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:23 (nine years ago) link

My picks:

Rocker: "Dangerous" (YOUR MOUF IS ALIIIVE!)
Ballad: "Fading Like a Flower" (unexpected guitar fills)
Crap: "Listen to Your Heart"

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:23 (nine years ago) link

We had so many joke Roxette songs at school when I was about 9 years old. "Listen To Your Fart", "Undressed For Some Sex" etc. etc.

Tim F, Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:25 (nine years ago) link

oh man "listen to your fart" just made me lol heartily

horseshoe, Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:26 (nine years ago) link

They were one of those acts whose popularity was unquestioned (four #1's in the US!) but I didn't know a single person who listened to them willingly or bought their singles.

A friend in 5th grade refused to tell me what he wanted for his birthday and then wrote "Roxette - Joyride" on a note during class when I asked again. I bought the tape and gave it to him at his party, only have him shouting "oh my god, dude, I was joking!"

da croupier, Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:31 (nine years ago) link

i was already an aspiring college rocker so i didn't find him wanting roxette any more absurd than the other kids in the class loving Another Bad Creation and Color Me Badd.

da croupier, Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:32 (nine years ago) link

aw!

Juggy Brottleteen´╗┐ (ENBB), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:32 (nine years ago) link

I got Joyride a week after Consolidated's Friendly Fascism. How's that for punk rock?

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:34 (nine years ago) link

It Must've Been Love. Few pop ballads are ever that lovely anymore.

jer.fairall, Tuesday, 11 October 2011 01:42 (nine years ago) link

Son of a Plumber is an album released by Swedish pop-rock singer and composer Per Gessle. It is the first album by Gessle to use a different artist name; Son of a Plumber. The album, which was officially released on 23 November 2005,[6] is a double CD album packed with deeply personal and highly inventive music according to Gessle[citation needed].

Mark G, Tuesday, 11 October 2011 09:21 (nine years ago) link

Apparently they released a single this year called "She's Got Nothing On (But The Radio)"

played in my local pub every lunchtime this summer. my violent teenage antipathy to roxette has barely abated in the intervening years.

Had to go with Fading Like A Flower. Very tough though.

Mohombi Khush Hua (ShariVari), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 11:51 (nine years ago) link

Tough in a good way, not because they're all terrible.

Mohombi Khush Hua (ShariVari), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 11:52 (nine years ago) link

is Son of a Plumber a concept album? plz say yes

btw this is "The Look" and fuiud

the tax avocado (DJP), Tuesday, 11 October 2011 15:27 (nine years ago) link

voting Almost Unreal for irrational sentimental reasons, but there's actually a lot of good stuff on here. Fading Like a Flower!

boxorox (Drugs A. Money), Wednesday, 12 October 2011 07:55 (nine years ago) link

I really like Dangerous and The Look.

billstevejim, Wednesday, 12 October 2011 08:56 (nine years ago) link

the centre of the heart!

teledyldonix, Thursday, 13 October 2011 16:39 (nine years ago) link

four years pass...

The burrito of ennui (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 6 November 2015 23:12 (five years ago) link

five years pass...

Listening to "The Look" and I am actually tearing up, it's so good and so evocative of the way the world sounded for half a second
