"The Centre of the Heart" is a song by Swedish duo Roxette's 2001 album Room Service. The single was only released commercially in Europe, except in the UK. It was the group's third #1 in Sweden where it remained on the top spot for 4 weeks. However, its success was limited elsewhere, not managing to reach higher than the top 30 or top 40 in most European countries.

The song was originally considered as the first single and the 10th track from the group's Have a Nice Day album in 1999 but ultimately became an outtake.

This song is also known as "The Centre of my Heart" or "The Centre of the Heart [Is the Suburb to the Brain]"

On 23 February 2001, Roxette performed "The Centre of the Heart" at the break during the Swedish Melodifestivalen 2001.

A remix CD was released to promote the single.

The Stonebridge ClubMix of this song was featured in Dance Dance Revolution 6th Mix: Max in 2001[1]

Music video[edit]

The video directed by Jonas Åkerlund, was shot at The Madonna Inn in California. It is the most expensive Roxette video ever produced.[citation needed] Roxette are seen performing from a room inside The Madonna Inn.
