As fans mentioned and started to report yesterday certain countries could not view the new video to ‘She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)’ due to it being blocked, however it now seems like the problem has been fixed [at least in some countries] so head on over to YouTube and see if it works for you now!
Don’t forget to vote for the video on the pages mentioned above (click on the 5 stars ;)). And of course, view it, we (they) need as many views and highest vote as possible!
The Roxette classic was covered again, this time by the Italian rock band ‘Ocean Drive’. Watch the video here:

Thanks Fabio Z. for the news tip!
Vicunja, a band from Halmstad, was founded in 2006 and consists of Alex Hansson (vocals), Johan Israelsson (guitar), Joakim Persson (bass) and Martin Larsson (drums). After appearances in Nalen in Stockholm and at the Peace & Love festival in Borlänge Vicunja released a video for the song “Some People“.
Theirs music has been described as a cross between ABBA and Nirvana.
You may have noticed that it got harder and harder to find official Roxette music videos on YouTube in the past months. That banning of “official” content is a matter of copyright issues between YouTube, music labels and the recording rights organisations. Now it appears that a user called “roxette” uploaded all the Roxette videos into a channel called “Roxette”.
Well, the channel already exists since 2006 but the videos only got uploaded 2 weeks ago. According to the channel page, it’s an official YouTube partner based in Sweden. Who’s behind this? EMI, Per or the management? Or just a fan – despite the “partner” tag? What speaks for EMI is the rather low video quality… but at least they’re available again!
PS. Um, the presence of “Fireworks” may speak against Per… 😉
She did it again. Danyela Etchart, Brazilian fan, created an amazing documentary about Roxette “Join the Joyride!” tour concert in Porto Alegre, Brazil on May 6th, 1992. It was 18 years ago. More on that concert you can read on Dany’s fan blog.
