and then to broken incoherent English.
Salah satu band yang boleh menyaingi konsistensi Iron Maiden dalam buat muzik dan lagu2 hebat dan main live hebat dalam jangka masa berkarya yang panjang berpuluh tahun ialah Roxette.
Kalau Bruce Dickinson dengan barah lidah dan anak tekaknye, yang barah tu sebesar bola golf, Roxette pula dengan Marie Fredriksson yang pernah menghadapi tumbuhan tumour di otak, sehingga dia buta sebelah mata.
Tapi menengok Roxette main live selepas penyakit Marie dikesan dan dia gi berubat, tak nampak langsung Marie mata dah buta sebelah, dah ada tumour dalam otak dia, dan segala masalah kesihatan, cuma dia tak selincah dulu dan ada perlahan sikit gerak dia. Cuma Per Gessle pimpin dia gi backstage masa lepas last song. (ok, observation ok aku.. haha..)..
Tapi nampaknye, Marie dah tewas dan tak boleh tour main live lagi, tapi tak tahu la dia masih boleh beraksi live. Rasanya boleh, cuma mungkin Roxette dah tak boleh tour lagik.
Aku sedih. Aku dah tunggu dorang akan datang main lagi di Singapore (dan Malaysia) untuk tour album terbaru. Ni mesej dari Marie kat website Roxette.
A Message from Marie
I hope they are not finished, I hope they will continue make new albums, new songs.
and I hope there is a chance for Marie to still perform live with Roxette.
Like I say above, watching Roxette perform live, its amazing Marie is on stage at all with all her medical conditions, and losing an eyesight too.
But thats life and...
for me, Its ok if they wont play live in where I am anymore.
AS THE SAYING GOES something like this " If The Mountain Don't Come To Us, We Will Go To The Mountain. ". LOL!!!
Anyway, as the above Marie Fredriksson message, - Eventually all good things must come to an end.
lets get excited as Roxette is releasing a new album very soon...
Its called Good Karma.
The cover and rear cover will look like these..
The First Single is a slow love song, but still its a great song. Awesome actually. LOL!!!
"Ahhh... Uhuuuu.... Ahhhh.... Uhuuuu... Its a Cabaret..."
"Ahhhh... You Fall In Love... Ahhhh.. You Fall In Love".
I like it very much...
This is the song, the first single with the full lyrics..
I think this album should be a great one.
been listening back to the bootleg I tape of the last time they played in Singapore in 2012..
My fave songs were not played - no Queen Of Rain, no June Afternoon, no She Dont Live Here Anymore, no Harley & Indians, no a lot of my fave songs..
but still a blockbuster setlist of old and new songs...
and they were ROCKING!!!!!! Lol!!
its always fun when Roxette plays their fast songs..
I should have been FIRST TO THE BARRIER!! at this Roxette show LOL!!!
Speaking of FTTB, I had registered myself for one of Iron Maiden's Australian date FTTB Drawing of Lots.
A kind of tranquility warm-up, with peace loving audience before the horrible hell and muddy fields of Donington I hope to go again this year... LOL!!!!
Found this unusual video clip of Queen Of Rain with Lyrics on the screen..
The Earlier Days of Roxette..
and this is Per Gessle solo live version... and he has this amazing lady singer to support him.
I think I should blog more on Roxette albums if I got time.. LOL!!
NOT ONLY UP THE IRONS!!!!
