Roxette is a Swedish pop rock duo, consisting of vocalist Marie Fredriksson and singer-songwriter Per Gessle. They became a very popular international act in the late 80’s and 90’s.
Listen To Your Heart, taken from their 1988 2nd studio album ‘Look Sharp!’ became one of the most successful singles of 1989, reaching number one in both the US and Canada.
This lesson is initially based on their acoustic version as broadcast by MTV Unplugged, which features a relatively easy guitar arrangement in the key of Am.
There is also a segment covering the progression of the studio recording. This arrangement is both vocally, as well as playing wise, far more challenging, since the key changes twice, a whole step up, respectively in the bridge and final chorus.
