Play Video


  • This is the first single released by the Swedish pop duo Roxette, from their eighth studio album Charm School. It was the first album of all-new material released by Roxette since Marie Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2002.
  • The song was written by Per Gessle and was released on January 28, 2011. He recalled the recording of the song to The Daily Roxette: "I wrote it in my dressing room on the Night of the Proms tour somewhere. But it was one of the last recordings we did. We did 'Radio,' 'Speak To Me' and 'Big Black Cadillac' at the same time. With this one I knew it basically had to be sung by me because of the lyrics, so the trick was to get Marie in there. I wrote a new middle 8 for her and I actually re-wrote the whole verse in the studio."
  • The single reached the top ten on Germany's singles chart, making it the biggest hit in that country since "How Do You Do" in 1992.
