Lead single from the album "You Don't Understand Me" was a first for Roxette in many ways. A first that a ballad would lead the brigade of singles from a Roxette album but more importantly, the first time that an "outsider", as described by Per Gessle, would co-write a Roxette song. American hit-maker Desmond Child co-wrote with Gessle the first single; "You Don't Understand Me". Desmond Child has a history of creating pop magic including writing for artists such as Bon Jovi, Kiss, Alice Cooper and Ricky Martin. Per Gessle and Desmond agreed to meet write some songs for other artists. "You Don't Understand Me" was one of the results. Impressed with the moody ballad, Per decided to keep it and asked Marie Fredriksson to record the vocals. Roxette then realised that this 'project' song would make an ideal Roxette track.


Interestingly, the album was released in late 1995 in Australia with minimal promotion and therefore made little impact on the ARIA Album Charts subsequently failing to crack the Australian Top 40. This was a first for the duo as each album released 'Down Under' enjoyed great success in the Album Charts. It was not until mid-96, some 6 months later, that EMI Australia began to promote the album with a collection of slick TV commercials that the record-buying-masses heard about the album. "Don't Bore Us" then debuted in the Australian Top 20 in June 1996 and eventually peaked at #10 on the ARIA Album Charts. The Greatest Hits package was certified platinum and made the Top 40 for "End of Year" Best-selling albums.
