Apart from waiting for the introduction of a few albums by the China Record Corporation, the only channel was to listen to the radio.I still remember what the radio host said when introducing the band. After finishing a soft and hearty “Fading Like A Flower”, he said that Swedish musicians are more likely to succeed in the world becauseThey can easily record in English, and the pronunciation is very standard, which will not make fans in the English region feel uncomfortable.Rockset’s first album cover.But in fact, there are only three popular bands from this Nordic country that enjoy such a reputation. Before Roxette, there was ABBA, and after Roxette, there was Ace of Base.Beyond this, no one else has ever achieved world-class recognition.Of course, they still have a loud death metal, which belongs to another system.Like young people nowadays, there was a contempt chain for listening to songs at that time. We like those who listen to independent rock despise listening to pop rock, but listening to pops like Rockset will not make people despise because they are not fromIn English-speaking countries, there is an exotic (exotic) feeling, and more importantly, their female lead singers are so handsome.Marie Fredriksson set up a duo with her good friend Per Gessle when she was 28 years old, that is, with a beautiful silver short hair show, which has never changed since.In the impression, they will always be in tight leather jackets, tall and slender.As a teenager, I will look forward to being so handsome and firm and free and easy in adulthood. She unknowingly set a benchmark image for me as an independent woman.Mary.Photo: Mattias Edwall, whose source website Mary was born on May 30, 1958 in a small Swedish town?ssj?, A child of an ordinary working-class family, her oral autobiography “Love of Life” (K?rleken till livet) revealed the tragic story of her family. Her 20-year-old sister died in a car accident on the way to choose a wedding dress. Her parents have not been able to recover from this blow, but this incident prompted her toDeath has a different understanding than its peers.Mary has shown extraordinary musical talents since she was a child.

She joined several bands, initially as a punk band Strul, and later entered MaMas Barn as a keyboard player. The guitarist of ABBA band FinnSj?Berg was also the producer of their album, and she eventually achieved commercial success in the Lasse Lindbom band, becoming a well-known artist in Sweden, which was around 1982.接下来她开始了一段单飞生涯,不过很快又在EMI瑞典唱片的促成下,和佩·格斯勒组成了罗克塞特,1986年10月发行的首张专辑 《Pearls of Passion》售Out of 200,000, the highest ranking reached the second in the domestic rankings.However, EMI America believes that they do not have the potential for international popularity and refuses to introduce Rockset.A dramatic scene took place in 1989 when an American exchange student studying in Sweden brought the single “The Look” from Roxette’s second album to a radio station in his hometown of Minneapolis.I ‘m crazy after listening, ah, how can it be so nice!The on-demand rate has skyrocketed, and soon this single was pushed to the US bulletin board charts. After 8 weeks, it reached the top of the list. At this time, EMI America could no longer sit still and rushed over with a huge contract .… After that, it ‘s something we all know. Rockset presented the theme song “It Must Have Been Love” for the popular movie “Wind Moon Beauty” in 1990, which was actually an old single from their previous years.The re-arrangement of the music has been famous since then.With a sense of rhythm, they became popular in dances and film soundtracks, and were adapted by artists from various countries. The Hong Kong female singer Guan Shuyi I admired most recently changed one of their “Listen to My Heart”.Dialogue in My Heart.The album cover of “The Look” is included.Almost all of the famous Rockset songs are about love, which makes one guess the relationship between Mary and Pei.To be honest, for many years I have silently regarded the two musicians with one face as a match made in heaven, which greatly satisfies the imagination of the fans, but in fact they are only a cooperative relationship at work.In an interview with the Los Angeles Times in 1990, Mary firmly denied this speculation.At that time, they had known each other for 12 years. From the beginning, they were strong friends. Even she came out from the Lindbom band solo because of Pei’s strong support and encouragement.But she also made Pei extremely sad-in 1994 Mary married keyboardist Mikael Bolyos of another band. Her wedding did not even invite Pei and his wife to participate, although she explained afterwards that she wanted to keep the wedding privateSex, but this negligence is enough to make Pei Tu vomit all his life.On December 9, 2019, Pei wrote this paragraph on his Twitter homepage: “Time flies.Not long ago, we spent countless days and nights in my small apartment, sharing impossible dreams.What a wonderful dream we finally shared!I am honored to meet your talent + generosity.All my love is dedicated to you and your family.Things will not stay the same forever.”This sad text has no trace of vomiting anymore.

When I first saw this photo, I was extremely harassed.

In 2010, she embarked on a tour again.Due to radiotherapy, she even took a wheelchair to the stage.Rockset also came to China in 2012. I remember seeing their huge posters in the subway. I could only miss them because of a business trip. At that time, I had the illusion that I would have the opportunity to watch it again.Today, she is the only one who is so high, and the unparalleled singing is still echoing in the speaker all night. This is a song that I have to repeat indefinitely every time I fall in love and frustration.Where I fell, I ran a long way from home to find a heart made of stone. I will try. I just need a little time to wipe your face from my mind.
