Marie Fredriksson, cantante de Roxette, ha fallecido a los 61 años, según ha confirmado la gerente de prensa de la banda, Marie Dimberg. La vocalista del famoso dúo de pop y compositora sueca ha estado librando durante los últimos años una larga batalla contra el cáncer que, finalmente, no ha podido superar.

Roxette, la banda que formó en 1986 junto con Per Gessle y con la que logró un impacto colosal, ya pasó a mejor vida en febrero de 2016, cuando ofreció su último concierto en Ciudad del Cabo en Sudáfrica, pero con la muerte de Fredriksson desaparece definitivamente uno de los grandes iconos musicales de los noventa. Aquí un pequeño tributo a la voz femenina detrás de Roxette.


Álbum: Pearls of Passion (1986).

Creada originalmente como un sencillo para aprovechar la temporada navideña, que pasó sin mucho éxito, el tema acabó casi por accidente en la banda sonora de la película Pretty Woman cuando los ejecutivos decidieron incluir el trabajo del dúo sueco. It Must Have Been Love quedó como una balada sobre el desamor que hoy seguimos reconociendo y coreando cada vez que la escuchamos.


Álbum: Look Sharp! (1988).

En 1989, un estudiante americano de intercambio en Suecia llamado Dean Cushman, escuchó The Look en la radio y le gustó tanto que no dudó en comprar una copia de Look Sharp! de inmediato. Se acercaban las vacaciones de Navidad, así que nuestro inesperado protagonista se llevó el disco hasta Estados Unidos y, ansioso por compartir su hallazgo musical, le pasó un ejemplar a la radio KDWB de Minneapolis. Tan pronto se radió por vez primera la canción las llamadas de los oyentes no se hicieron esperar: querían oír The Look en todo momento, a todas horas. El resultado fue el primer éxito internacional del dúo, convirtiéndose en una de las cinco canciones mas escuchadas de 1989, junto a Like a Prayer de Madonna.


Álbum: Joyride (1991).

Durante la grabación en 1990, Per Gessle y Marie Fredriksson pensaban que la canción sería el mayor éxito de su carrera hasta ese momento, pero justo en su fecha de lanzamiento, cambios en la directiva de su casa discográfica produjeron recortes en la promoción de la popular balada. Para sorpresa del dúo, la canción se convirtió en un éxito, marcando la época dorada de Roxette y su adentramiento al mercado hispano.


Álbum: Look Sharp! (1988).

Listen to your Heart se convirtió en una de las canciones más exitosas de 1989, solo por detrás de Personal Jesus de Depeche Mode y Poison de Alice Cooper, alcanzando el primer puesto en varias listas… sin ser un single oficial del Look Sharp!


Álbum: Crash! Boom! Bang! (1994).

Cuando Roxette se encontraba a punto de editar su quinto álbum de estudio, Per Gessle apareció con una nueva canción que había compuesto en medio del cierre de las sesiones de grabación de dicho álbum. Fue arreglada en poco tiempo y tras el buen resultado, EMI decidió editarla como primer sencillo de la nueva placa.

Por su parte, Per Gessle ha dedicado unas palabras a su compañera de dúo a través de su cuenta de Twitter: “El tiempo pasa tan rápido. No hace tanto tiempo que pasamos días y noches en mi pequeño apartamento compartiendo sueños imposibles. ¡Y qué sueño llegamos a compartir! Me siento honrado de haber conocido tu talento y generosidad. Todo mi amor va para ti y tu familia. Las cosas jamás volverán a ser igual”.
