Anyone remember this band? This album? “Joyride” is awesome! I remember at school the teachers and media thought the album title would encourage young people to actually go joy riding! There was a huge protest about the title of this Roxette album.
Anyhow, it is still a fantastic album: I love all the songs. It is dance and catchy and fun.
Sadly, Marie died last year from a brain tumour. The world will never forget Marie.
Hello TestDummyC! Just to let you know, Roxette have loads of albums. They are:
Pearls Of Passion 1986
Look Sharp 1988
Crash! Boom! Bang! 1994
They’ve had other albums, but these are the best of them. They have so many brilliant, brilliant songs. I cannot fault Roxette. Definitely listen to these albums, if you have the time or the inclination.
I know I am plugging the band, but I feel it is worth doing so.
I must admit, I’ve heard “Listen To Your Heart” so many times I am tired of it. I tend to listen to Roxette’s other songs on YouTube. “It Must’ve Been Love” is also fantastic. But – again – I’ve heard it enough times.
Roxette do have a long backlog. I do think some of their later albums aren’t as good. BUT they aren’t rubbish or anything. Still, their earlier albums are better.
Do watch their songs – rather than videos – on YouTube. I am not so keen on their music videos. I feel their video for “Almost Unreal” let the song down. Still, it is worth a listen.
I know I seem to be being negative, but they were a brilliant band at the end of the day. And Marie will always be a true star.
