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

She's the top, she‘s got the world on a string.
She makes me boogie, makes me do anything yeah yeah.
Hey now, touch the sky,
you've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.

Well, she's a miracle, she's all that I need
like the water and the air that I breathe yea yea
Hey now, reach the sky,
there's a certain kind of look in your smile.

And I know what love can do,
Yes I know what hearts can do.

The big love is taking the wheel,
the big love goes head over heels,
the big lust, bring it into
the small world, the bigger the better.

Big love, waiting to catch the big one,
head over heels,
the big one, bring it into the small world.
I'm building the big big love,
I'm building the big big love.

It's kinda strange , a bit mysterious,
I got to take it oh so so serious

Hey now, touch the sky,
you've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
It used to be so hard, so lonely at night,
well, she's my baby and I'm feeling alright

Hey now, move the sky,
there's a certain kind of look in that smile.
When I'm making love with her, (I'm Making)
when I'm making lover to her yeah

The big love
The big love is taking the wheel,
the big love goes head over heels,
the big lust, bring it into
the small world, the bigger the better.

Big love, waiting to catch the big one,
head over heels,
the big one, bring it into the small world.
I'm building the big big love,
Yeah! I'm building the big big love.

It has to be a big thing.
It's bringing me to my knees.
Has to be a big thing,
big thing,
You know what I'm saying

The big love is taking the wheel,
the big love goes head over heels,
the big lust, bring it into
the small world, the bigger the better.

Big love, waiting to catch the big one,
head over heels,
the big one, bring it into the small world.
I'm building the big big love,
You know, I'm building the big big love.

Big love, I'm building the big love
(Big love, big love, big love, big love, big love, big love...)
