Roxette’s official videos are back on YouTube

Two months ago somehow almost all the official videos of Roxette were set to private at emimusic channel on YouTube. They kept only 6 of them public. We were a bit worried about losing all the videos and the view counts of them and of course, we were surprised that it could happen after Warner Music Sweden took Roxette over. Even Per stated:

We are just as surprised as you are!!! However…we’re working on it!!!!

It seems the negotiations came to an end, since the videos are set back to public. Woo-hoo! During these 2 months both IMHBL and LTYH got more than 3 million views each. Amazing, isn’t it?

Where have the official Roxette videos gone?

Tonight Per posted a non-official video of ”June Afternoon”, because he couldn’t find the official one on YouTube. Weird, because he shared it several times during the past years and we watched it many times for sure, so there is something strange happening here. Now we could find the official JA video only on other sites, e.g. on Dailymotion.

Official videos available on emimusic’s channel (with actual views) are:

  • It Must Have Been Love – 34 074 356 views
  • Listen To Your Heart – 31 078 061 views
  • IMHBL_LTYH_YT_emimusicJoyride – 8 352 248 views
  • The Look – 7 460 461 views
  • Dangerous – 6 347 994 views
  • One Wish – 160 404 views

Roxette VEVO channel has the following clips (with actual views):

  • Wish I Could Fly – 2 907 618 views
  • She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio) – 1 763 301 views
  • Queen of Rain – 1 128 350 views
  • Way Out – 258 114 views
  • It’s Possible – 229 435 views
  • No One Makes It On Her Own – 120 789 views

 

But where are all the others??? Well, it seems that the videos are being moved to another channel or the channel is changing, because many videos got private settings now. (Other bands, Iron Maiden, Blur and Daft Punk among others are facing the same issue it seems. Thanx for letting us know, Tina Engmann.) Hopefully, Warner Music will be able to solve it, because if emimusic channel deletes all the remaining Rox videos – even the 2 most popular ones with more than 30 million views each – it won’t be too funny. No clue if there is any chance to keep the statistics and the view counts. As far as I know, they can only be kept if the video stays where it is and has the same code / link.

By the way, I couldn’t even find e.g. Per Gessle’s ”Silly Really” official video on YouTube anymore. Probably, it’s the same situation.

Marie Fredriksson’s YouTube channel is still working, but there you can only watch ”Sista sommarens vals” and the PR videos for Nu! and the tour. And of course, Per’s home video channel is still there.

Until it gets – hopefully – solved, you can go to the Roxette channel on Dailymotion to watch 42 official videos and to the Per Gessle channel to watch 5 official videos.

 

“No One Makes It On Her Own” video got officially launched

This week saw the official media release of Roxette’s music video for the 4th “Charm School” single “No One Makes It On Her Own”. The beautiful animated video for the download-only single was made by Russian fan Tanya Rush and got published already in March. EMI now decided to buy and use it as the official video for the ballad.

The animated work appears to be retouched a bit if you compare the old Youtube with the new DailyMotion or MyVideo (D-A-CH) upload. There’s also a new end screen.

The single itself has no specific release date, since there’s no CD or download bundle – not even a cover. Just buy an album version if you haven’t yet!
