Merry-Go-Round is an English re-recording of the track En karusell, recorded at Metronome Studio on March 29 1972. The track was credited to Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid. The track was titled Merry-Go-Round (En Karusell) in the Swedish market, where En karusell had already been released, and En Carousel in Japan. Merry-Go-Round was first released as the B-side to the People Need Love single.

The track was also released on the 1994 compilation Thank You for the Music and the 2001 deluxe edition of Ring Ring.

The song was sampled in Royce da 5'9" song Merry Go Round, which was eventually removed from streaming services due to the unauthorised sampling.
