BEFORE IT WAS A HIT SONG…
These songs are well known but you may not know about the earlier attempts to score a hit record with prior versions of the same song.
It Must Have Been Love
"It Must Have Been Love" was featured in the film 'Pretty Woman'. Roxette enjoyed worldwide success in 1990 with the ballad, topping charts in America, Europe, Canada and Australia. In Britain, the single peaked at #3. It was written by Per Gessle, the male half of the duo.
The original version of the song - also recorded by Roxette- was a Christmas themed track. Cut back in 1987, it was released in time for that year's Yuletide season. The single was entitled "It Must Have Been Love (Christmas For The Broken Hearted)" and made the Top 5 on the Swedish chart. It was not issued elsewhere until the duo had notched up hits internationally. Associated with the box office hit film starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts 3 years later, this time the disc was embraced by the public.
