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 2016 werd bekend dat Roxette ermee gaat stoppen. Dit in verband met gezondheidsredenen van zangeres Marie. Zij werd in 2002 getroffen door een hersenbloeding maar is daarvan hersteld. Wel kunnen Per en Marie terugkijken op een succesvolle carriëre.

Songtekst

I know there's something in the wake of your smile
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yeah
You built a love
But that love falls apart
Your little piece of heaven...turns to dark.

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before...you tell him goodbye.

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile
The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yeah
They're swept away
And nothing is what it seems
The feeling of belonging...to your dreams.

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before...you tell him goodbye.

And there are voices
That want to be heard
So much to mention
But you can't find the words
The scent of magic
The beauty that's been
(Beauty that's been)
When love was wilder than the wind.

Listen to your heart
(Take a listen to it)
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
(Take a listen to it)
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before...

Oh
Listen to your heart
(Take a listen to it)
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
(Take a listen to it)
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before...you tell him goodbye.

Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Oh
Take a listen to it
Oh-oh-oh
Oh
Listen to your heart.

Take a, take a listen to it
Listen to your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart.

Oh
Listen to your heart
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Listen to your heart
(Listen to your heart)
Oh-oh-oh-ooo
Oh-oh-oh
Listen to your heart
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Listen to your heart
(Listen to your heart)
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Listen to your heart
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Listen to your heart.
