One of my all time favourite albums celebrates its 30th anniversary today.
Peaking at No.2 on the UK Album Chart and taking up residence in the chart for 49 weeks, this album also went on to sell over 600,000 copies achieving 2 x platinum status. Joyride has sold over 11 million copies worldwide.
Singles released from this album were lead single Joyride, Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave) which is my all time fav, The Big L, Spending My Time & Church of Your Heart.
This truly is one of my favourite albums. Roxette were one of the first bands that I got in to. Marie’s voice just sounds like home to me. I have so many memories of their music. The beauty of ballads Spending My Time and Watercolours In The Rain are some of the best work they have ever done, and there’s plenty here to rock out to too with her amazing vocal on (Do You Get) Excited, the way it builds sends chills down my spine. Per has some highlights on this album too; Physical Fascination is my favourite song of his, and Knocking On Every Door is another great track.
Thank you for reading my post. Please do check out their artist page on my website, like, comment and share too.
