They were big back in the day. The most successful Swedish band after ABBA. Being from Finland myself, I can easily remember the hooks from many of the hits. Thousands and thousands of women must have copied Marie's look as well.

I’m surprised there aren’t more replies here. Look sharp is an awesome album, I downloaded it for the first time this week after liking their ballads for years
