Album of the Day
Joyride (Deluxe Version)
When the members of Roxette heard Paul McCartney describe songwriting with John Lennon as “a joyride,” they had the inspiration for a hit - “Joyride” went to No.1 on the U.S. singles chart on this day in 1991. The song became the title track to the dynamic Swedish duo's third studio album, and like its predecessor, LOOK SHARP!, there's virtually no filler on this superb set of Top 40-ready pop. There's plenty of variety here; Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson are masters of both punchy, danceable songs like “The Big L” and ballads like “Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave).” The Deluxe Version adds three bonus tracks to the original's 15, making this the ultimate JOYRIDE.
