"June Afternoon", written by Per Gessle and released in 1996, is a song by Roxette, released as the second single from their greatest hits album Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus! from 1995. It was only released in Europe and Australia. It peaked at number 24 in Sweden and number 52 in the UK.

Recorded with members of the Swedish pop group Gyllene Tider, "June Afternoon" was the planned centrepiece on Per Gessle's upcoming solo album The World According to Gessle, but plans were changed and this cheerful ode to endless summer was picked as a single off Roxette's 1995 greatest hit album.

The second song on this single is a demo version of "Seduce Me", which was later included on the 2006 release of The Rox Box.
