One person chosen without thought; anybody.
Anyone is a song by Swedish pop music duo Roxette, released on 10 May 1999 as the second single from their sixth studio album, Have a Nice Day. Composed by Per Gessle, the song was inspired by the work of Burt Bacharach and Phil Spector, and the album version of the song was mostly performed in a single take at Atlantis Recording Studio in Stockholm. In Japan, the single was released as a double a-side with "Pay the Price", although no music video was created for that song. The music video for "Anyone" was directed by Jonas Åkerlund and proved controversial upon release. It ends with a distressed Marie Fredriksson attempting to commit suicide by drowning herself in the ocean, and was banned from airplay on MTV Europe. As a result of this, the song performed poorly on national record charts, becoming a top 30 hit in Belgium, Poland, Spain and Switzerland. Its performance on European charts led to EMI UK deciding against releasing the single there.

Anyone is a band from Southern California that formed in 1995. Their 2001 self-titled album was released on Roadrunner Records. They have described their music using the term "maximum acid", combining a heavy metal sound with psychedelic rock influences. Anyone is the brainchild of Riz Story, the band's lead singer and guitarist, and also the only member of the band that has remained since its inception. Following some more changes to the band's lineup and an extended period between the releases, their second album, Sip the Pleasure of Days, is planned for a 2007 release, and the band have signed to a new record label, Delinquent Recordz.
