Best Roxette Songs

The superb Swedish pop music duo, members: Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle.

The Top Ten

1 It Must Have Been Love

I love many songs from Roxette but this one is my favorite. No wonder it became real classic. Real hit - Magnolia

The beautiful song of 1987 - MatrixGuy

The best song I ever heard. Let's you see the inner imaginative strength in you.

"it must have been love"... I fell, I accept that
"but its over now"... am moving on because I said so
"It's where the water flows, It's where the wind blows."... nevertheless, it was a beauty while it lasted.

Do I need to talk about the verses and melody?

This was one of greatest composition ever...I adore this talent

PERFECT SONG! My favourite song ever!

Biiig power ballad! Marie at her best.

Top 3 for sure. My favorite. Reminds me of summers as a kid at the water park (this song played a lot)

I like the way they sang this one! - Neroextreme

My personal Favourite Roxette song.

.. That was my favorite song of roxette

6 Fading Like a Flower

Yeah, I know you had to scroll all the way down to find this one. How the hell can this not even be in the top 10. Vote for this song and let's try to fix it!

Always liked this song but just found out (2014) it was Roxette. Easily their best song. What a class act!

Great guitar solo in this one! Really should be higher.

It is just such a nice song with twists and turns of emotion.It is Roxette’s best song and one of my all time favorite songs.

7 How Do You Do!

This is the best Song from Roxette

Why nobody comment on this song

This is my favourite!

OHMYGOSH this is my pajama song - the one where I dance around yelling out the lyrics at top volume... definitely my most favorite!

8 Sleeping in My Car

Beautiful song should be in top 5


9 Dangerous

A lost classic. Don't know how people overlook this one.

I love this show song!

Hold on tight, you know I am a little bit dangerous..
Ha.. Ha.. Ha.. Just kidding

10 Vulnerable

I fall in love with this song! It's really nice!

I love this song

Nice voice by per gessle. I love this song very much...

One of Per Gessle's best compositions, by far.

The Contenders

11 Dressed for Success

This song is so cool and is so different to many other songs in that it has a kind of dialogue. I don't know why it is not further up on the list because it is my favourite followed closely by How Do You Do

Such a catchy lively tune. I like it much better than their bigger hits.

Light pop perfectly delivered by Marie. A great one live!

12 Wish I Could Fly

Beautiful song and video

13 Almost Unreal

Unbelievable song. Everybody can relate to the lyrics at least one time in their life. In my opinion number one.

Hands down, the best. The bridge is PERFECT.

14 Milk and Toast and Honey

One day I just opened the radio and then I fell in love with this song...

I love this one too

Good song for sing when fall inlove

15 You Don't Understand Me

Why anyone don't want to hear this song. This song is amazing


16 Beautiful Things
17 Opportunity Nox

Awesome song, I came across it on an amv and it instantly hit me as awesomness.

Check it out, its quite brilliant in its own way

18 Queen of Rain

Got to be the best Roxette melody.

19 (Do You Get) Excited?

Great, edgy song. Should have been released as a single. Very underrated.

Their best and most underrated

20 She's Got Nothing on (But the Radio)

The Look is obviously Roxette's best song, but I voted for this one, because it is criminally underrated. It is not even famous, and it is a top song, maybe their 2nd or 3rd best.

Nice modern Song with the typical Roxette-Sound. Great Comeback-Song and nice Radiosong after 10 Years.

21 Crash! Boom! Bang!
22 Things Will Never Be the Same

Such a beautiful melancholic song! Definitely the best one from Roxette! I can still listen to this on repeat.

23 Church of Your Heart

An optimistic and touching song. It seems to be simple but so hopeful that I consider it to be the best. Every accord is at the right time and right place.

24 Chances

I was obsessed with this song when I was 13-14. Should have been a bigger hit

25 Silver Blue

Probably the best Roxette song. It's full of emotions that have left me absolutely happy! And sometimes my mornings are much more wonderful when I see the silver blue and listen to the song with such title.

There is no Never is a long time - my #1 - and The sweet hello (#2). So vote for Silver blue - my #3

Great song, great lyrics, great duet! - sabinafanjul

26 June Afternoon

I could never understood song, but still one of my favorites

A very Gesslish, fun song that should bring smiles to all who hear it. One of my favourites, only for putting a smile on my face every time I hear it.

27 Paint

I can't believe its not popular, I love this song

28 Waiting for the Rain
29 Knockin' on Every Door

Real catchy, solid song off of Joyride.

30 A Thing About You

It is the best song of roxette

31 Neverending Love
32 Love Is All
33 Dance Away
34 Stars

Has gorgeous lyrics and is so different for them, and they killed it.

Not only their best ever song but the BEST EVER POP SINGLE released on earth! at no 36! you are kidding...pop perfection...with an amazing video...

35 The Rain

More sophisticated, sombre and mature sounding than their pop tunes. Really like this one.

36 The Big L.
37 Speak to Me

If you like Listen to your heart, Wish I could fly and Fading like a flower, this one will take you by heart... Amazing music, perfect vocals and superb lyrics

Best Roxette song ever!

38 Anyone

Did anyone comment on this song?

39 Watercolours In the Rain

Beautifully written by Per,beautifully sung by Marie.

40 What's She Like?

I assume not welknown, but an unknown Roxette gem nonetheless...

41 Shadow of a Doubt

Only an album track on Look Sharp!
But in my opinion one of the most underrated songs of the 80s

42 Real Sugar

How can this not be already on the list?! Absolutely one of their best songs!

43 Perfect Day

This is by far the best and most haunting ballad Roxette has ever made. Not releasing it as a single was very odd. For those that don’t know, watch Marie sing this song in the making of tourism video. Just awesome

44 Stupid
45 Salvation

Typical Roxette ballad. Another unknown treasure. Roxette is much more substantial than only their hits.

46 Touched by the Hand of God

If Roxette was part of your childhood growing up, Touched by the hand of God is going to make you feel young, happy and energetic. Song written for Marie's (lead singer) miraculous recovery from cancer, it is an upbeat song that shows that Roxette is still young

47 I Remember You
48 Run to You
49 Half a Woman, Half a Shadow

It's a good song.
