"The Look", written by Per Gessle and performed by Roxette, is the opening track and released as the second single in early 1989 from the album Look Sharp!, which was recorded with two different music videos. The song became Roxette's international "breakthrough" song, finally exposing the duo to music consumers outside of the duo's native Sweden and Europe after more than one attempt. It topped the U.S. singles chart in 1989 becoming their first U.S. #1 success and scored #7 on the UK Singles Chart. The song also topped the charts in 24 other countries.
