Music video[edit]

In the video, directed by Jesper Hiro, all the characters seen (except Roxette) are very similar to The Muppets. At the start of the video, Roxette are seen performing "The Centre of the Heart" on a small TV. The channel is turned over to a late night show, where Roxette are introduced. Later into the song, the backing band are introduced as Ray, Mandy and Joey. After the song is finished, the TV is turned off by a couple of lovers, who are seen kissing.[2]
