Behind the song: ''The Look'' by Roxette
"I wanted to write a ZZ Top-type of song. It turned out to be something totally different in the end, which is always the case. I never really thought it would be a big song. I had it around for a couple of months before I played it for Marie and Clarence Ofwerman, our producer. They both said, 'This is the best thing you've done in ages - you have to record it.'" - Per Gessle
"Our first American #1 and of course the Big Break. It topped the charts in some 30 countries but at the time I just thought it was a throwaway." - Per Gessle
"This is still one of my all time favorites, maybe the best thing we've ever done - it sticks out as much now as it did then. I couldn't sing it, it suited Per perfectly. But he didn't believe in himself as a singer in those days." - Marie Fredriksson
