“The Center Of The Heart” slips onto Napster


The upcoming Roxette single "The Center Of The Heart (Is A Suburb To The Brain)" found its way onto Napster this week. The track is an up-tempo song with both Per and Marie singing. The song has generated a huge response from fans who have been able to hear it. Many have endorsed Roxette's decision to release an up-tempo single track, but the song's similarity to Savage Garden's "I Want You" has disturbed others. Some even claim that the song sounds more like a demo or a remix than a radio track.

  It's unknown who the individual was that put the song on Napster in the first place. EMI Svenska started this week to send out promo singles to the media and local EMI offices, so it was probably someone amongst these people.

  "The Center Of The Heart" is the first single release from Roxette's new album "Room Service". Airplay of the single is scheduled to start on February 19th. Retail version will be released on March 19th. The album will be released worldwide by EMI on April 2nd, excluding the USA where Edel America Records will release it a day later on April 3rd.

The lyrics of "The Center Of The Heart":


Per:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain, tell me…
What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
 
Marie:
You wear them so well, those innocent eyes
You're puttin' on a wonderful disguise
I want you so bad… I'm pushing my luck
It feels like being hit by a truck
This is no place special. Don't know why I came
If someone has a minute, won't you explain
 
Per:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain, tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the center of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Singin'
 
Marie:
na nana nana na
na nana nana na
 
Marie:
Being with you, dealing with fire
Oh won't you come around (come out)
come out (today) and play
(I want you so bad)
Answer my calls
Let's spend the night within these walls
This is no place special…
