Almost a year ago there was an issue with Roxette’s official videos disappearing for a while from YouTube. Only 6 big hits were kept online that time. It was a consequence of the EMI – Warner Music merge and back then it seemed no one was really prepared for the fact that emimusic channel on YouTube might not work after EMI is not existing anymore. The issue got solved in about 2 months and the missing videos were set back on YouTube at the same channel.
Now it happened again. Some official videos, e.g. Listen To Your Heart, It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, Dangerous are set to private on emimusic channel. The last time Per shared IMHBL (March 4th) and LTYH (5th March) on Roxette’s Facebook page, the videos were still available. Will they be back with their millionaire view counts?
Other artists are facing the same issue, so it’s again not something uniquely related to Roxette, but still it’s quite annoying.
In the meantime, Warner Music Sweden is uploading many videos from the past. As per what we, Roxers are mostly interested in among them are mainly Marie Fredriksson videos, as well as a few Per Gessle vids. It’s lovely to see all those gems, but also funny to see Marie’s Tro got a new, interesting title from Warner, Sweetwater. Whatever it is and wherever it is coming from. 😉 They will surely correct it soon.
Roxette’s VEVO channel is still existing and many videos are still available at emimusic channel, but it would be great to get back all the other videos, too. Fingers crossed for it being solved this time for a longer period (forever maybe?) than just for another year.
Update on 21st March: When Roxette’s official YouTube channel was announced yesterday, the official videos were set back to public. Yay!
