This song Joyride, inspired by singer Per Gessle's girlfriend leaving a voicemail that said "hello, you fool. I love you", is one of the most joyous songs I can think of. I mean it has the word "joy" in it for fudge sake!! Roxette had a good run of hits on the charts in the late 80s and early 90s before sadly fading away. Their brand of blending American and Swedish pop is unlike anyone else and Joyride is one of the best examples. It was the lead single off of their platinum-selling third studio album of the same name. Joyride hit #1 on the Hot 100 on May 11, 1991 and remained in our happy hearts ever since. Enjoy the Joyride!!
