"Turn Back Time" is a song by Scandinavian dance-pop group Aqua, released as their seventh single overall, and the third UK release. The single is their third United Kingdom number one. The song featured on the soundtrack for the 1998 film Sliding Doors, and was released across the world the same year. In its May 1998 UK release, the song topped the charts for one week, enough to put them in a small, elite group who see their first three singles all make number one.
The song possessed less of a "bubble pop" sound than their other releases, and subsequently gained far more radio airplay than their other releases. The song was slow-paced and showed the full range of Lene Nystrøm Rasted's vocals, while maintaining the Aqua sound. The video for the release contained footage from the Sliding Doors film, and was therefore very different from the previous, comedy videos by the group. There are two different edits of this video, one contains more clips from the film. Much of the video was filmed on the abandoned platform 5 at Holborn tube station.
This single flopped in America and therefore was the third and last single released by Aqua in the USA.
