In the UK, "Joyride" peaked at #4. In interviews, Gessle states he got the idea for the opening line of this song from his girlfriend (now wife) who left a note on his piano that stated, "Hello, you fool, I love you." In the opening section of the song, a man is heard saying "Come on, join the joyride everybody, get your tickets here, step right this way"; the man who says this is Roxette's old tour manager and long-time friend Dave Edwards. This is an homage to The Beatles' song "Magical Mystery Tour", on which, during the opening section, Paul McCartney is heard saying "Roll up, roll up for the Magical Mystery Tour! Step right this way!" In the liner notes of Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus!, Gessle calls "Joyride" Roxette's "Magical Mystery Tour", and says he took the title from an interview in which Paul McCartney called writing songs with John Lennon a "long joyride". In 1991, Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Chipettes covered the song for their album The Chipmunks Rock the House. During the 1994 Stanley Cup playoffs this became the intro anthem to the Vancouver Canucks as they took the ice before each game. (en)
