"She's Got Nothing On (But the Radio)", written by Per Gessle and performed by Swedish pop duo Roxette, is the first single released from their eighth studio album Charm School. The video was directed by Mats Udd. The single is Roxette's longest running hit in Germany since "How Do You Do!" in 1992, charting for 21 weeks [1]

The song was A-listed on BBC Radio 2 for the week commencing 7 March.[2] and remained there for the weeks commencing the 14, 21 & 26 March & 2 April, before moving to the B-list for the week commencing 9 April. The song has spent 39 weeks on Czech's Hot 100 Airplay Chart, peaking at #30, still receiving radio play.[3] It was serviced to radio stations on June 20, 2011, in the United States.[4]

The title is a reference to a 1952 quote by Marilyn Monroe regarding her nude photographs for a calendar: "It's not true I had nothing on. I had the radio on." The band Pantera used the same phrase for the title of its song "Nothin' On (But the Radio)" on their 1983 debut album Metal Magic. In 2004, country music artist Gary Allan released "Nothing On but the Radio". It was reported in 2010 that Lady Gaga had recorded an unreleased song under the title "Nothing On (But the Radio)".[5]
