Continuing my one woman campaign!

To help Robbie Williams finally 'break' the USA! Here's his biggest selling hit and a favourite anthem for many fans. If you listen to the lyrics closely, you'll realise it's not a song about romantic love. That's because he wrote the lyrics for his mother, see what a great guy he is, now go buy his records!

Marywin said...

Ah Robbie the man, whats there not to love? - stopping by from SITS

Sam_I_am said...

Didn't he already break in '99? Didn't he sing Millennium? Or was that a one-hit wonder? or someone else? I dunno.

:-)

Debra said...

Beautiful song!

Laura said...

I love Robbie! Then again, I'm Belgian and not American, so this isn't too much of a help for your campaign, is it? :) Anyway, I hope he comes up with some new tunes soon!

Winifred said...

That's one of his best but he does have a really daft streak doesn't he.

If you get the chance see him in the Comic Relief sketch of Lily Grace that he he did last night with Matt Lucas & David Walliams. It was a scream. They've only put the first bit on You Tube. The second bit was the funniest, maybe they'll put it on later.

He should have gone back to Take That! They did ask him and he refused. They're absolutely massive now. Bigger than they were originally.

Most of their new hits are on You Tube but unfortunately the UK is still locked out of nearly all music videos there. Thank you Google and the PRS! Why don't you get your act together and communicate or maybe somebody should just bang your heads together.

Ooops, sorry Sarah I was getting carried away there, another Victor Meldrew moment I think.

Winifred said...

Oops forgot to say sorry you still have no rain. How on earth do you manage?

"Back for Good" is on You Tube, Robbie with Take That, I love that one and wow, I can still see it!

Flea said...

Oh! He's handsome, too!

It's raining here today. I hope you get some of our precipitation.

Winifred, my brother bought me Take That's comeback album and it's great. I can see all there latest video's on YouTube and spent an afternoon enjoying them. You're right he should have rejoined them, in fact there are rumours he might soon after moving back to the UK permanently.

Laura - he is currently recording a new album in the UK.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Flea so do I, it's bad out here!

Sam - yes he was a one hit wonder over here, in the rest of the world he's a phenomenon!

Dave said...

I agree. One of his best. Thanks!

I just don't understand what's wrong w/ Americans & why they don't like this guy! Hopefully his new album makes it across & they'll learn what they're missing!

I played that song over and over the morning of my PhD defense, I was a nervous wreck but Robbie calmed me down!

Polish Punk Chick said...

I've been a Robbie Williams fan for at least 10 years...I remember watching an MTV interview a loooong time ago with him in it. Good plan!

Sarah said...

Love Robbie and Take that. But I am british. You think a man of that talent would crack it here. Thanks for a recap on a great brit talent xx

M said...

I love Robbie. Sorry if I am not being polite but I could so shag the arse off him!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

M - LMAO!

Lover of Life said...

He's good. I'll have to check for him on I-Tunes.

Troy said...

I'm a great fan of Robbie and before you (or M) ask, yes I'm 100%straight. Great music and lyrics. Great showman.
There is a brilliant live version of "She's The One" on YouTube with audience interaction that I'm sure would win the hearts of every American woman from 15 to 75.

Janet said...

my most favourite RW song ever!!!!

Comedy Goddess said...

Thanks for the introduction Brit Gal! He is very good.

Bella Foxx said...

I hear his songs on Pandora, but then I have British bands on my station. But I didn't really know who he was 'till your post.

Jill of All Trades said...

I have and I love him. He is just awesome.

Stuart Peel said...

This is your Roger Moore moment ! We shall have to agree to differ here, as I cannot stand this guy. But I do like you :).

deanna said...

Ahhh....I heard him while I was in Ireland in 2007. Great song-crazy character.
xoxoxo

Laura said...

All right, a new album! That made my day! :)

The Antiques Diva™ said...

Oh yeah, he's nice. I love Jamie Cullum and it seems none of my American friends know him either!! Brit Gal Readers should add him to their Brit list too!!
