    Roxette’s fifth and last single off the Joyride album. It was released as a 7″, 12″, and a CD single. It didn’t do much in the charts but was very popular live. The original sleeve has a picture of Stora Torg (Main Square) in Halmstad, Sweden, where singer Per Gessle was born in 1959. The UK single cover had that as the rear photo and used a photo of the band as the front cover. The title is set in caps from Bembo, and the band name in Futura Bold, with a mid-word change to the Bold Italic. This is also the first time Snell Roundhand was used (see also the Room Service album from 2001). The back cover shows Adobe Garamond and Futura Extra Bold. The sleeve is designed by an old friend of Per Gessle’s, Lars Nordin.
