Featured:

This Swedish Rock duo (Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle) became a big in North America with their second album called Look Sharp!.  It spun several top 10 singles such as The Look, Dress For Success and Listen to Your Heart.

Their next number one single was from the 1990 movie soundtrack of Pretty Women called It Must of Been Love.

Third album Joyride was another success for the band which spun hits such as Joyride, Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)Spending My Time and my favourite single Do You Get Excited?

The band had release several more albums which did not do as well in North America but was more successful in Europe, Asia and Australia.  Their last single to chart in North America was from 1994 called Sleeping in my Car from their fifth album Crash! Boom! Bang!

In 2002, the duo took a break from recording and touring when Marie Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  The band went on hiatus until they got back together in 2009.

Their new tenth studio album called Good Karma was released in June 2016.  With their first amazing single It Just Happens.
