Spending My Time

"Spending My Time" is a song by Swedish duo Roxette, released as the fourth single from their third studio album, Joyride (). It was written by Per Gessle and Mats Persson, and produced by Clarence Öfwerman. The single attained moderate success, reaching the top ten in Germany and Italy, and the top twenty in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland, while peaking at number twenty-two on the UK Singles Chart and thirty-two on the Billboard Hot in the United States.

A remix was created by MC King Carli and Dr Renault (pseudonyms used by Öfwerman & Anders) at EMI Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, in July , and was included on the single. A Spanish version of the song, titled "Un día sin ti" ("A Day Without You"), was released in as the lead single from the duo's Spanish-language compilation album Baladas en español.

Critical reception[edit]

AllMusic editor Bryan Buss noted "the quiet desperation" of the song in his review of Joyride.[1]Larry Flick from Billboard described the song as a "acoustic-anchored pop/rock ballad" and noted further that the "memorable melody and throaty vocals by Marie Fredriksson are [the] track's true highlights."[2]Expressen called it a "high-pitched melancholy ballad".[3] Dave Sholin from the Gavin Report wrote, "In a Top 40 world starved for pop music, Per and Marie can be considered a delicacy. No matter what the tempo, all their songs contain melodies that win listeners over immediately. Hearing this latest release makes it easy to understand why they've established such a large and loyal international following."[4]Göteborgsposten complimented the song for its "strong" chorus.[5] Kim Såtvedt from Laagendalsposten also complimented Roxette for their "beautiful ballads" like "Spending My Time", noting it as "enthralling".[6] Brendon Veevers from Renowned for Sound called it "the greatest musical creation of all time", adding the song as "such an emotional charged and exquisitely delivered song".[7]Rolling Stones J.D. Considine noted Fredriksson's "vocal fire-work" on the song.[8]

Commercial performance[edit]

The song was not as commercially successful as the duo's preceding singles. It peaked at number thirty-two on the Billboard Hot in the US, ending a run of five consecutive top two singles on the chart.[9] In the liner notes of their greatest hits compilation Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus!, Per Gessle said he believed that "Spending My Time" was "going to be our biggest hit ever, which might have happened if not our American record company had fired a lot of ah, never mind."[10] At the end of , EMI merged with other record companies to form EMI Records Group North America. The merger resulted in the new company firing over a hundred members of staff, and saw Roxette receiving little support from the new label.[11] The song also peaked at number nine in Canada.[12]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Spending My Time" was directed by Wayne Isham and depicts lead singer Marie Fredriksson at multiple places in a house, such as sitting by a window, lying in bed, sitting on a couch and at a table. Gessle also appears occasionally playing the guitar.[13]
