Thanks to Danilo Roxette for sending this through.
Roxette’s first single off “Charm School” finally entered one of Sweden’s most popular radio charts, Svensktoppen, at #10!
Svensktoppen is a program on Sverige Radio (Swedish Radio) which runs on P4 between 11 and 12 CET each Sunday and presented by Carolina Norén.
Three newcomers are chosen each week by P4 music producers based on how often a song is played on P4. The list is created each week with the votes of a randomly selected jury, who can vote for up to 3 songs each week.
Thanks Evgeny for the information!
Roxette’s first single off “Charm School”, “She’s Got Nothing On (But the Radio)”, has hit #9 on Radio Express’ World Chart. This means that Roxette’s song is the 9th most played song on this planet!
Roxette’s song has been on the list for 12 weeks now and has been climbing from #12 two weeks ago, to #11 last week and #9 this week. Current #1 is Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, followed by Rhianna’s “S&M”.
And this is how the World Chart is created: every week Radio Express compiles the World Chart by tabulating the most listened-to pop songs on the planet, based on the playlists of 100s of top radio stations worldwide.
Together with the chart, Radio Express offers The World Chart Show, “which is available fully produced in a 2-hour English version presented by Lara Scott or in a easy-to-assemble version for local co-producers. There are 48 minutes of program time per hour.”
The World Chart Show also has a Facebook page.

Update March 8: As EMI Germany proudly announces, the single climbs to #10 this week! That makes “She’s Got Nothing On” Roxette’s 9th top 10 hit, the highest ranking single since “How Do You Do!” in 1992. Also in Austria the single jumps up to #10. What a magnificent comeback! This success shows how much potential Roxette still has – and compared to markets like Sweden, what a difference some promotion makes…

The insider report by Roxette fan Gellner just got officially confirmed: Roxette’s new single “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio) entered the official sales charts of Germany at #18! This is Roxette’s first Top 20 hit single since “Sleeping In My Car”, the lead single from “Crash! Boom! Bang!” in early 1994.
All singles after that failed to reach a Top 20 position, with “Wish I Could Fly” (#26) and “Stars” (#23) coming close in 1999. It’s clear that Roxette got more of an album band in these regions, with all studio albums since “Joyride” reaching a Top 3 position.
On the national radio charts the song climbed up to #20 after 22, 43 and 71 in Germany. In Austria it reached #27 after 52 and 44, while climbing from 63 to #49 in Switzerland.
The full sales charts with Roxette’s entry will be published on Friday. Source: Media Control
Advertising spots for Roxette’s new single “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)” and the album “Charm School” are broadcasted on Germany’s TV channels ProSieben, Sat1 and Kabel1. The longer spot (seen below) features audio snippets of the single and the album track “Speak To Me”. The speaker reminds of Roxette’s big successes and informs about the new CD release dates on January 28 and February 11, 2011. There’s another spot for the single only. And then we heard the channels are using the single also for show trailers. Looks like a full marketing package!
Update: Here’s the shorter single-only spot…
… and a cooperation spot by the TV channel.
Thanks to Sven for this information.
The show is nothing but a chart show coming with a certain motto and will be recorded on February 22th in Cologne. Roxette will play their latest single “She’s got nothing on (but the radio)”. Motto of the show is “the most famous synthiepop songs of all times”.
Tickets are still available HERE.
Additional info: The Chart-Show had between 3 and 3.5 million viewers in the last season. Normally the episodes get broadcast again after some months or even years. The show’s concept is a song countdown with videoclips based on the German charts/sales according to the motto. Some celebrities are talking and commenting the songs on a couch, while a couple of show acts perform on stage. Always one of the old charting hits, sometimes a new one as well. Sometimes playback, sometimes live.
Update 28-01-2011: both the broadcast and the recording dates haven’t been 100% confirmed by the production company. We will let you know as soon as we have this confirmation.
