Roxette's It Must Have Been Love (covered as a country song)

I heard this great 1980's break-up anthem earlier this week and thought to myself... that's just a really embellished country song. I decided to attempt to deconstruct it so here's my best attempt at a country-esque cover on 4-string CBG. I hope you folks like it.

Intro @ 0:00
Song @ 0:46

Thanks John. It is certainly a well-written song.

Good to hear you, Kale.  Good song.  Kinda sad............   Very well done.  Thank you.  Sad about Marie.   Thanks.

That's correct AGP. Marie Frederikkson died in 2019 from cancer. Sad.

Don't remember much about their Music, but do remember the Purdy Little Blonde, who sadly, I think passed on a few years back. ;-(

So true and likewise… love to see The Slingers showing everyone how it’s done.

Glad to do it Kale! I look for to hearing covers of popular songs on simple Cigar Box Guitars, and you deliver the goods consistently! It’s a reminder to me that you don’t need fancy high end 6-strings to make great music.

Thanks for tuning in Doug. I really appreciate your feedback each week.

I recognized this one Kale and enjoyed your CBG rendition! I haven’t heard it in years; thanks for sharing it.
