Joyrider

Anteckningar

Per: The fourth #1 in America. It all started with a message my girlfriend left on the piano: “Hello, you fool – I love you”. Sounds like a chorus, I thought. Marie: Absolutely wonderful to do live this one. Per: It’s us doing a Magical Mystery Tour. Got the title from an interview with Paul McCartney, where he said that writing songs with John Lennon was a long joyride. Marie: Once again Per wasn’t sure that this should be the album opener… Per: …I sang it, you know… but Marie was determined, so she had her way. It turned out to be our biggest album to date, mainly because of this song. So thanks for insisting. Marie: My pleasure.

– Don’t Bore Us – Get to the Chorus! liner notes, 1995

Per’s wife Åsa Gessle inspired this one. In the spring of 1990 she wrote him a note that said “Hej din tok – jag älskar dej!” which translates to “Hello, you fool – I love you”. The fool in question smilingly picked up a guitar and started writing what would become “Joyride”, instantly sensing that he had a winner on his hands. “The record company was waiting for a new single. From the first seconds, I knew this would be a monster”.

– The Pop Hits liner notes, 2003

Per: A typical example of how “produced” demos MP and me did back in the days. This sounds very much like the final version, don’t you think?

Roxette – Joyride [Ursprungliga Versionen] 4:30

C’mon join the joyride, everybody
Get your tickets here
Step right this way

Hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon join the joyride

I hit the road out of nowhere
I had to jump in my car
And be a rider in a love game
Following the stars
Don’t need no book of wisdom
I get no money talk at all

She has a train going downtown
She’s got a club on the moon
And she’s telling all her secrets
In a wonderful balloon
Oh she’s the heart of the fun fair
She’s got me whistling her private tune

And it all begins where it ends
And she’s all mine, my magic friend

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon join the joyride, join the joyride

She’s a flower I can paint her
She’s a child of the sun
We’re part of this together
Could never turn around and run
Don’t need no fortune teller
To know where my lucky love belongs oh no

Cos it all begins again when it ends
And we’re all magic friends

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon join the joyride, join the joyride

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon join the joyride, be a joyrider

I’ll take you on a skyride
A feeling like you’re spellbound
The sunshine is a lady
Who rox you like a baby

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon join the joyride, join the joyride

Hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon join the joyride, join the joyride

Hello, hello, you fool, I love you
C’mon, c’mon join the joyride, be a joyrider
