E’ il primo singolo rilasciato nel 1994 dall’album Crash! Boom! Bang!, quinto album studio del duo svedese dei Roxette. Sleeping In My Car fu composta dal chitarrista Per Gessle conferendo un’anima più rock ad una base pur sempre pop e con essa, in patria, raggiunsero per la prima volta la vetta delle classifiche, oltre alla Top10 nella maggior parte d’Europa. Questa innovazione stilistica rappresentava un’evoluzione peculiare di tutto l’album da cui era tratta.
Quando nel 1995 i Roxette dovevano eseguire il brano ad un concerto a Pechino, furono intimati di cambiare le parole a causa del tema della canzone, seppur tutt’altro che esplicito. Per la cronaca, essi accettarono per poi all’ultimo eseguirla invece così come è stata scritta.
