"Joyride", released on February 27, 1991, was the lead single from the Swedish pop duo's third studio album with the same title. Per Gessle has said that the opening line of the song was inspired by a note his back then girlfriend left on his piano, which read: 'Hej, din tok, jag älskar dig' ('Hello, you fool, i love you'). Its title was derived from an interview in which Paul McCartney compared writing songs with John Lennon to 'a long joyride'. The feelgood tune went to the top position in the United States, Germany, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Spain.
