‘Dangerous’ by Roxette – Classic Hit or Miss
“Dangerous”, written by Per Gessle, is the fourth single released from Roxette’s album Look Sharp!. Gessle penned it just before Roxette’s first tour in 1987. Released at the end of 1989, it was the group’s third top 10 showing on the Billboard Hot 100, spending two weeks at #2 in February 1990. It was held out from the #1 spot by the Paula Abdul track “Opposites Attract”. The music video was performed in the ruins of Borgholm Castle. It was released as a double A-side in the UK, alongside “Listen to Your Heart”.
The version on the single features a different introduction, omitting the instruments in favor of the duo singing the first line of the chorus.
