Day 162: “Joyride” – Roxette

!!!ITALIANO!!!

You know the spirit of this blog is to choose the song of the day according to mood, memories, everyday life or any other kind of input. Well, today’s song has a very simple reason: my bed’s staves are broken. My bed, like all the furniture of the flat, was bought by the master of the house in a famous Swedish company. The cause of my uncomfortable night is Sweden. But luckily there is music.

Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson formed the Roxette duo in 1986 and obtain a good success in many countries with their pleasant pop rock and Marie’s beautiful voice. Joyride is the title of the single I suggest today and of their third album, released in 1991. Their lyrics have never been so serious, but in my opinion this duo has always been so nice. In 2002 Marie had a brain tumor and got through it, but she had physical and cognitive damages; although all that, currently she is still singing around. In the end my bed’s staves are not a big problem.

Lyrics

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

She’s the heart of the funfair
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
Come on join the joyride
Join the joyride

She’s a flower, I can paint her
She’s a child of the sun
We’re a 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

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

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
Come on join the joyride
Join the joyride

Be a joyrider

I 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
Come on join the joyride
Join the joyride
