Joyride is the third studio album by Swedish pop duo Roxette, released on 28 March 1991 by EMI as the follow-up to their international breakthrough Look Sharp! (1989), as well as the non-album single "It Must Have Been Love", from the soundtrack to Pretty Woman (1990). The album was recorded over an 11-month period in Sweden, the duo experienced considerable pressure from their record label to deliver a successful follow-up album, and resisted pressure to relocate to Los Angeles and work with experienced American producers.

The album was a critical and commercial success upon release, with a retrospective review for AllMusic calling it "the work of two pop artists at the top of their game."[1] Joyride topped the charts and was certified multi-platinum in several territories, and it remains one of the best-selling albums of all time in Argentina, Austria and Germany. "Joyride", "Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)", "The Big L.", "Spending My Time" and "Church of Your Heart" were released as singles. Roxette also toured extensively to support the record, the "Join the Joyride! Tour" saw them performing to over 1.7 million people across four continents. As of 2001, Joyride has sold over 11 million copies worldwide.

Background and recording[edit]

Roxette's primary songwriter, Per Gessle, began work on the album in February 1990 at the Tits & Ass recording studio in Halmstad—which he co-founded in 1984 with his then-Gyllene Tider bandmate, lead guitarist Mats "MP" Persson. The pair recorded rough demo versions of ten songs over a three-week period, after which they were joined by vocalist Marie Fredriksson, who then provided input on re-arranging some of the material. By the end of April, the three had completed work on over twenty-five demos.[2]

Work was transferred to EMI Studios in Stockholm in May, where Gessle and Fredriksson were joined by producer Clarence Öfwerman, with the success of previous album Look Sharp! (1988) and its singles, as well as the non-album single "It Must Have Been Love", the duo resisted pressure from record company EMI to relocate to Los Angeles and work with American producers and musicians, opting instead to "develop our own sound" with the Swedish musicians they had worked with previously.[2] Gessle has described the pressure to deliver a successful follow-up album as "intense", with EMI investing almost US$2 million on pre-release promotion for Joyride.[3]

All of the lyrics on the album were written by Gessle, who also composed the majority of its music—with the exception of "Spending My Time", "(Do You Get) Excited?" and "Perfect Day", which were co-composed with Persson; Fredriksson co-wrote the music to one of the album's louder rock songs, "Hotblooded", and is the sole composer of ballad "Watercolors in the Rain".[4] She composed its music using lyrics which were written several years prior by Gessle, who expressed interest in the pair composing this way more regularly on future material, saying: "When it's happening like that [me writing lyrics and Marie composing music], it makes Roxette even better because it widens up what we can do, what kind of music we can make, even more. So I think she should write more." Her limited input in the songwriting of Roxette material stemmed from difficulty with writing English lyrics: she has said that it "feels very strange to write in another language." The song is more folk-orientated than any material previously recorded by the duo, and is indicative of Fredriksson's Swedish-language solo work.[2]

Singles and promotion[edit]

The title track was released as the album's first single, it became one of Roxette's biggest ever hits, and was one of the most successful singles of 1991.[5] It was the duo's first number one single in their home country,[6] and topped the charts in numerous other territories, the song spent eight weeks at number one in Germany,[7] where it was certified gold by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie for sales in excess of 250,000 copies.[8] It spent three weeks atop the Australian Singles Chart,[9] and was their fourth and last US number one single,[10] it also topped the singles chart in Canada,[11] where it was nominated for a Juno Award in 1992 for Best Selling Single by a Foreign Artist.[12] "Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)" was released as the second single. It also became a hit, particularly in North America, where it peaked at number two in both Canada and on the US Billboard Hot 100—being held off the top spot in both countries by Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You".[13][14] "The Big L." was released as the third single outside of North America in August, peaking within the top twenty of numerous territories.[15]

In September, Roxette began their "Join the Joyride! Tour". Opening on September 4 in Helsinki, the tour would see the band playing to over 1.7 million people during its 100 shows in Europe, Australia and North and South America.[16] The South American leg of the tour was particularly successful, with the band playing to nearly 350,000 people at thirteen concerts, resulting in a 27% increase in album sales,[17] the North American leg of the tour received mixed reviews. A review for the Los Angeles Times claimed that Fredriksson was "squandering her talents in pop's low-rent district. She's clearly superior to Roxette's uncomplicated, hook-crammed material";[18] Jon Pareles of The New York Times criticized their show for its "careful mimicry of MTV. On a set painted in Piet Mondrian primary colors, Miss Fredriksson struts, leans on the other band members, makes symmetrical arm motions, pouts and straps on a guitar to take a few chords; she took off her leather jacket and later her long sleeves, like a G-rated stripper."[19]

"I believed this was going to be our biggest hit ever, which might have happened if not our American record company had fired a lot of... ah, never mind. It's a big song to us, anyway."[20]
—Gessle, on the chart performance of "Spending My Time" in the US.

The end of 1991 saw the merger of the SBK, Chrysalis and EMI record labels to form EMI Records Group North America,[21][22] the merger resulted in the new company firing over a hundred members of staff, and saw Roxette receiving little support from their new label.[23] Subsequent singles from the album, "Spending My Time" and "Church of Your Heart", peaked at numbers thirty-two and thirty-six respectively on the Billboard Hot 100—in stark contrast to the duo's previous five singles which all peaked within the top two of the chart.[10] A music video for "(Do You Get) Excited?" was created, although its planned single release was later cancelled.[24]

Release and artwork[edit]

Joyride was released worldwide on CD, MD, DCC, cassette and LP formats from 28 March 1991 by EMI, with varying track listings. CD and cassette editions contained fifteen tracks, with the exception of all North American editions, which omitted the song "I Remember You", this was replaced on the track list with the re-recorded version of "Soul Deep", originally released as a single from their 1986 debut album Pearls of Passion. All LP versions of the album contained twelve songs: omitting "I Remember You", "Soul Deep", and the album's fifth and final single, "Church of Your Heart",[25] the album was remastered and reissued on CD and via digital download services in 2009. This reissue restored the album's original fifteen song track list, and included three b-sides as bonus material,[26] the version released on iTunes contained a further three bonus tracks: a demo of "Come Back (Before You Leave)", the US single version of "Joyride", and a Humberto Gatica remix of "Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)".[27]

The album's sleeve was designed by Roxette and Kjell Andersson,[4] it consists of brightly coloured images, which were inspired by South American carnivals, funfairs, and the artwork for The Beatles' 1967 EP Magical Mystery Tour.[2] The principal photographer of the album's cover was Mattias Edwall, with the set designed by Mikael Varhelyi,[4] who would later become the supervising art director of the 2011 version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.[28] The title track features The Beatles' former tour manager Dave Edwards, who is credited with narration.[4] Gessle has said that its title was derived from an interview given by Paul McCartney, in which he described writing songs with John Lennon as "a long joyride".[29]

The album received generally positive reviews from music critics. AllMusic called the record the work of "two pop artists at the top of their game", and praised the album's consistency, saying: "most of the songs sound like they were designed to be hit singles, not just filler between two or three good cuts."[1] When reviewing the album, Entertainment Weekly compared the band to ABBA, calling them "worthy successors to the tradition of air-headed catchiness set down by their fellow Swedish pop tarts", and complimented the album for an abundance of hooks.[30] Conversely, J.D. Considine of Rolling Stone said that although Roxette had similarities to ABBA, they were "different in the way that matters most—its music", and praised the duo for their performance which he said "marks perhaps the most important difference between Roxette and [ABBA]. By emphasizing its sense of personality, Roxette delivers more than just well-constructed hooks; this music has heart, something that makes even the catchiest melody more appealing."[31]

Accolades[edit]

In 1992, Roxette were nominated for numerous Grammis Awards, the Swedish equivalent of the Grammy Awards. "The Big L." was nominated for Music Video of the Year, and Joyride won them the Pop Group of the Year Award.[32] Roxette and Gessle were also respectively nominated for Artist of the Year and Composer of the Year, while the album's guitarist, Jonas Isaacson, was awarded the Special Prize of the Year Award.[33] Roxette also won several Rockbjörnen awards during this period, winning the award for Best Swedish Group at both the 1991 and 1992 ceremonies, with Joyride also winning the award for Best Album by a Swedish Group in 1991.[34]

They were also nominated for various international awards, including Best International Group at the 1991 Brit Awards, losing to INXS, the "Joyride" music video won the International Viewer's Choice Award at the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards, while Roxette also won the award for Most Popular International Group at the ARIA Music Awards of 1991. In 1991, they won the Silver Bravo Award for Best Pop/Rock Group in Germany, and won their Gold award the following year;[35][36] in 1992, they were nominated for Germany's Echo Music Prize under the category for International Group of the Year.[37]

Commercial performance[edit]

Joyride was an immediate commercial success, selling over 2.2 million copies worldwide within a month of release.[3] In their home country, it spent seven weeks at number one on the Swedish Albums Chart,[38] where it has been certified 6× platinum for shipments in excess of 600,000 units,[39] it also spent nine non-consecutive weeks atop the Norwegian Albums Chart, along with a further eight weeks at number two.[40] The album was a massive commercial success in Germany, where it debuted at number six before rising to the top spot the following week; in total, it spent thirteen consecutive weeks at number one on the German Albums Chart, and a further five weeks at number two.[41] It was certified 7× gold by the BVMI, indicating shipments of over 1.75 million units, and remains one of the best-selling albums of all time in the country.[42] Joyride spent eleven weeks at number one Austrian Albums Chart,[43] and is one of highest-selling albums of all time there, where it was certified triple platinum by the IFPI for sales in excess of 150,000 copies.[44] The record also spent sixteen weeks at number one in Switzerland,[45] and was certified quadruple platinum there for sales in excess of 200,000 copies.[46]

On the UK Albums Chart, Joyride debuted at number two—where it was kept off the top spot by Eurythmics' Greatest Hits.[47] It spent 49 weeks on the chart,[48] and was certified double platinum by the BPI for shipments in excess of 600,000 copies.[49] Similarly, the album spent two weeks at number two on the Australian Albums Chart, behind the Eurythmics compilation,[50] and was certified triple platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association.[51] It debuted at number forty-one on the Billboard 200, on the chart dated 20 April 1991.[52] The album would spend over a year on the chart, peaking at number twelve,[53] it was certified platinum by the RIAA in July 1991,[54] and has sold over 1.3 million copies in the US as of 2005.[55] In Canada, it peaked at number three,[56] and was certified quintuple platinum for shipments in excess of 500,000 units,[57] it was also certified sextuple platinum in Argentina for sales of almost half a million copies.[58] As of 2001, Joyride has sold over 11 million copies worldwide.[59]
