Roxette

Then: In 1990, Julia Roberts played a hooker with a heart of gold in Pretty Woman, and America fell in love. The movie made $463 million at the box office – and Swedish pop duo Roextte's soundtrack tune "It Must Have Been Love" became the year's fifth biggest song. The track was originally called "It Must Have Been Love (Christmas For The Broken Heart)" and was a big hit in Sweden in 1987, but three years later, Roxette took out the holiday references and slightly re-worked it for the movie. They had many more hits around that time, including "The Look" and "Listen To Your Heart."

Now: If you live in America, you probably never heard a thing about Roxette after 1992 or so. They were one of many, many bands to disappear after the grunge revolution. In Europe, however, they have a devoted following and have continued to tour and release new albums. This past March they released their ninth studio LP Traveling, and this fall they're coming to America for a theater tour.
