It Must Have Been Love is one of the Swedish pop duo Roxette’s best selling singles, being certified gold or platinum in many countries.
Roxette has recorded four versions of the song, and this lesson covers two of those.
Of course we take a look at the one which appears on the soundtrack of the movie-hit ‘Pretty Woman’ (1990), with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.
The progression is mainly in the key of C, but changes to the key of F, taking it up 2 1/2 steps. This is both vocally and guitar wise quite challenging.
They’ve released a more acoustic version (L.A. Studio Recording) on their album ‘Tourism’ (1992) and they, for example, performed it during their Unplugged show, broadcast by MTV.
The progression for this version is similar, but the key change goes up a whole step to the key of D instead, making it probably easier for most people.
