- The Roxette Demos!, Vol. 4 5″ CD
Per: This demo was recorded at the Tits & Ass Studio in May 1993! I knew immediately it had the muscles to become a big one with Marie singing it! Such a beautiful melody-line, very dramatic and also a great title (which btw comes from Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock” –“The drummer boy from Illinois went Crash Boom Bang”–. Marie sounds SOOOO good on this. So convincing you trust every word she sings. A big big talent that makes brilliant singers stand out from the rest! And Clarence’s string arrangement is superb! I’m lucky to work with ppl of that calibre!
