Wow, not a single Roxette comment. I mean they aren't hall of fame types, but they had a fairly hefty number of catchy songs.

I think far more famous than their Swedish counterparts ABBA (who were inducted). Very well received throughout the world.

"more famous than ABBA"

I have to agree with GFW here, Roxette only beats ABBA in total US #1 songs (4 to 1), and total top 10 hits (6 to 4). You have to factor in that ABBA never achieved the success in the States it did in the rest of the world, globally the foursome was a hit making machine. Roxette versus Ace of Base might be a better Swedish comparison.

Duane, it is hard to imagine any entity being 'far more famous' worldwide than ABBA.

Roxette was a band that I hadn't heard of before being introduced to them by a friend around 7-8 years ago. After taking a listen to a few songs, I realized that I actually knew several tunes by the band...just never knew the artist who did them.

Chris, have never seen 'Pretty Woman' (although I am familiar with basic plot). Listened to alot of cassette tapes back then. Probably have heard song you mentioned at some time or another, just would have not known that Roxette did it.

Kind of odd that today (or yesterday) we're talking about Roxette!(?) Is that really true, Paul (in KY), you don't remember them?

Roxette deserves a RRHOF nomination in the next 10 years or so. Made monster type hits The Look & It Must Have Been Love as well as Joyride and several hits.

They'll probably get a surprise nomination in the next 10 years or so. They'll never get in. And they shouldn't, as much as I love them.
