Roxette is een Zweeds duo wat in de jaren 80 wordt opgericht. In 1986 verschijnt hun eerste album Pearls Of Passion maar in Nederland blijft het onopgemerkt. In 1989 is het wel raak met het album Look Sharp en de leadsingle The Look schopt het tot nummer 2 in de Nederlandse Top 40. Vele hits volgen zoals Listen To Your Heart, It Must Have Been Love en Dangerous. In 1991 scoort het tweetal een nummer 1-hit in de Nederlandse Top 40 met de single Joyride afkomstig van het gelijknamige album.

In 2002 werd bij zangeres Marie Fredriksson een kwaadaardige hersentumor vastgesteld. Na een succesvolle operatie en een zwaar herstel werd ze in 2005 kankervrij verklaard. In 2009 trad ze voor het eerst weer samen op met Per Gessle en een jaar later volgde een comeback van Roxette. Ondanks het herstel bleef Marie sukkelen met haar gezondheid en in 2016 stopte ze op doktersadvies met optreden. In de ochtend van 9 december 2019 overleed zij op 61-jarige leeftijd.

Songtekst

(Must have been love...
But it's over now.)

Lay a whisper
On my pillow
Leave the winter
On the ground
I wake up lonely
There's air of silence
In the bedroom
And all around
(All around)
Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away.

It must have been love
But it's over now
It must have been good
But I lost it somehow
It must have been love
But it's over now
From the moment we touched
'Til the time had run out.

Make-believing
We're together
That I'm sheltered
By your heart
But in and outside
I've turned to water
Like a teardrop
In your palm
And it's a hard
Winter's day
I dream away.

It must have been love
(Must have been love)
But it's over now
(But it's over now)
It was all that I wanted
Now I'm living without
It must have been love
(Must have been love)
But it's over now
It's where the water flows
It's where the wind blows.

It must have been love
(Must have been love)
But it's over now
(But it's over now)
It must have been good
But I lost it somehow
It must have been love
(Must have been love)
But it's over now
(But it's over now)
From the moment we touched
'Til the time had run out.

Yeah
It must have been love
(It must have been love)
But it's over now
(But it's over now)
It was all that I wanted
Now I'm living without
It must have been love
But it's over now
It's where the water flows
It's where the wind blows.

Oh
It must have been love
But it's over now
(But it's over now)
(But it's over now)
Now I'm all alone
(It must have been love)
It must have been love
(But it's over now)
But it's over now
Now I'm all alone...
