BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

sleeve

“Can’t Shake Loose” is a 1983 song from former ABBA star Agnetha Fältskog’s solo album, Wrap Your Arms Around Me. It was the third single release in Europe and the first to be issued in the United States.

The song was written by Russ Ballard, who also wrote the successful “I Know There’s Something Going On” for Agnetha’s former ABBA colleague Anni-Frid Lyngstad (Frida).

“Can’t Shake Loose” proved rather successful on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, where an Edited Remix of the song broke into the Top 30 peaking at #29 in November 1983. As usual, Fältskog made only limited promotion, but she did travel across the Atlantic from Sweden in August 1983 to appear on American television. “Can’t Shake Loose” also performed well in Canada, where it reached #26. In the UK and Australia, however, the track proved less successful, reaching #63 and #76, respectively.

In North America a remix was used as the single version while in Europe the album version was used.
