THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: ROXETTE - FADING LIKE A FLOWER

"Fading Like A Flower", by Roxette
"Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)", written by Per Gessle, was the second single released from Swedish pop duo Roxette's 1991 album Joyride.

In July 1991, the song spent a week at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. The song reached the top 5 most everywhere in Europe and also reached the top 3 in the USA and Canada. The track entered and peaked at #12 in the UK Singles Chart in May 1991.

The music video was shot mostly in Gamla stan, Stockholm, Sweden and features images of Stockholm City Hall. The song was written in 1989 ("in Canada" according to Gessle), but eventually released in 1991.
