Roxette was a really successful duo, I thank them for all the great songs and memories they gave us.

RIP Marie Fredriksson

Great singer and beautiful woman. Roxette wrote some banger hits. Joyride is still a total blast and a highly original pop tune. There's no other song quite like it.

Here is a translation of "Mot okända hav"

To unknown seas
So here we are again
You're fooling me with words
The flame breathe than
But we've waited long enough
Far away
A tide against day
Far away
The heart beat

You ask me
If I can remember the way home
And I can look at you
That you do not know to whom
Where are you with your disorientation
And where should I go if in doubt again

To unknown seas
Want to join
To unknown seas
Through ash and autumn
To unknown seas
Do not be afraid
I just give you some
Of all you gave

Come when the wind turned
And blowing out of the country
Come with the lights on
And no lie in your hand
I promise no stars in the night
All I promise is another beach

To unknown seas
Want to join
To unknown seas
Through rain and storm
In unknown seas
Do not be afraid
I just give you some
Of all you gave

It's a song about a loved one getting sick with dementia. Maries songs in Swedish was quite dark.
