I completely forgot mentioning this two days ago, but Wednesday was in fact a day that for music lovers will hopefully go down in history as a great one - on Wednesday, Roxette finally released a new record in the United States, namely their Greatest Hits album Don't Bore Us - Get To The Chorus.
As regular TrekToday readers will know, I'm perhaps an even greater fan of Roxette than I am of Star Trek, having collected practically every obscure record Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson have ever made, both as Roxette and solo. Though their later records didn't perform as exceptionally well as 'Look Sharp!' or 'Joyride' here in Europe either, it was always highly annoying that none of their new music ever made it to the United States, due to problems with their record label. Fortunately, now that has changed, and some of you may have already heard their new US single 'Wish I Could Fly' on the radio. If you liked it as much as their earlier work, such as the aforementioned songs and songs like 'It Must Have Been Love' or 'Dangerous', be sure to check out their new album. Also be sure to check out the schedule of their current promotion tour in the United States - they'll be playing in Baltimore tonight.
Apparently Roxette are currently working on a full new album, so expect a few more mentions of them in future Hello Worlds. Feel free to complain about my music taste now :)

Today is the 77th birthday of William Windon, who appeared in the Original Series episode 'The Doomsday Machine' as Commodore Decker. Also, yesterday would have been the 68th birthday of Roger C. Carmel, Harry Mudd on the Original Series, had he not sadly passed away in 1986.
