Land   Zweden

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

1-2-3-4
Walking like a man
Hitting like a hammer
She's a juvenile scam
Never was a quitter
Tasty like a raindrop
She's got the look.

Heavenly bound
'Cause heaven's got a number
When she's spinning me around
Kissing is a colour
Her loving is a wild dog
She's got the look.

She's got the look
(She's got the look)
She's got the look
(She's got the look)
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue?
When everything I'll ever do, I'll do for you
And I go:
La, la, la, la, la
She's got the look.

Fire in the ice
Naked to the t-bone
Is a lover's disguise.
Banging on the head drum
Shaking like a mad bull
She's got the look.

Swaying to the band
Moving like a hammer, she's a miracle man
Loving is the ocean
Kissing is the wet sand
She's got the look.

She's got the look
(She's got the look)
She's got the look
(She's got the look)
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue?
When everything I'll ever do, I'll do for you
And I go:
La, la, la, la, la
She's got the look.

Ow!

Walking like a man
Hitting like a hammer
She's a juvenile scam
Never was a quitter
Tasty like a raindrop
She's got the look.

And she goes:
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na
Shes got the look.

She's got the look
(She's got the look)
She's got the look
(She's got the look)
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue?
When everything I'll ever do, I'll do for you
And I go:
La, la, la, la, la
She's got the look.

What in the world
Can make you so blue?
When everything I'll ever do, I'll do for you
And I go:
La, la, la, la, la...

Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na
Shes got the look.
She goes
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na
Shes got the look
She's got the look
She goes
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na
She's got the look
She's got the look
She goes
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na
She's got the look!
She's got the look!
