A Collection of Roxette Hits: Their 20 Greatest Songs!, released on 18 October 2006 is a greatest hits from Swedish pop duo Roxette, celebrating 20 years of record releases.

The tracks "One Wish" and "Reveal" were recorded especially for this album in May 2006. A deluxe version is also available which comes with a DVD featuring the videos of the 18 hits included on this album, namely the rebranded re-release of the album in Australia in 2011 labelled as the "Exclusive Australian Tour Edition CD & DVD". The sold out Australian leg[5] of the Charm School World Tour helped this release to enter the Australian Top 20 in early 2012, six years after the original release.[6]
