Look Sharp! New Roxette Compilation in Stores Today

with 3 comments

As previously noted on Twitter, we’re doing something a bit different with the new catalogue releases this week: rather than do a big New Release Round-Up post, we’re going to do smaller posts highlighting them through the day. Why? Simple: a lot of these releases, taken on their own, are small but of enough interest to not get swept under the rug of a mega-post as such. Plus, there aren’t really a whole heck of a lot of major reissues out this week anyway.

We begin with a new compilation from Roxette, the Swedish pop duo who dominated the airwaves in the late ’80s and early ’90s with an assortment of shimmering dance-pop hits. Their four U.S. chart-toppers, “The Look,” “Listen to Your Heart,” “It Must Have Been Love” and “Joyride” are still radio and club staples. (“Listen to Your Heart” enjoyed a new lease on life in 2005, when Belgian club act D.H.T. took their version of it to Billboard‘s Top 10.) Though the set is certainly heavy on those hits from the first five years or so, there are two tracks included from the group’s latest album, this year’s Charm School (which is receiving a digital release in the U.S. alongside this compilation).

The full track list and an Amazon link is after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »
