In 2001, the single Eternity was released together with The Road To Mandalay, which was on the Sing When You’re Winning album. Eternity was not on that album. The inspiration for that song was the close friendship of Robbie Williams with Geri Halliwell. The Road To Mandalay is about a vacation at the beach. One problem: Mandalay is in Birma, deep in the country, so there’s no beach at all… it does, however, rhyme with way. The song was number 1 in the UK. Enjoy
Robbie Williams- The Road To Mandalay
Song(s) of the day: Avicii vs. Nicky Romero- I Could Be The One / Justive Collective- He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother
Today it’s friday, which means: two new songs!
And I have some good songs…
The first song is made for some kind of charity. The Justice Collective is a band with all kind of artists, including Robbie Williams and Melanie C.
This song went to number one in the UK, and I think that it might go to high positions in other countries, as well.
It’s a cover from He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother.
The second song is made by two DJ’s. One is very known, the other one is new. And the new one is Dutch!
The new one is Nicky Romero, and the known one is Avicii.
The track is called I Could Be The One.
And the song of the week is… not relevant anymore.
Today it’s Superfriday, with two songs!
Both are kind of new, and are already my favourites.
The first song is Candy from Robbie Williams.
This is a song which is rising very fast in the hitcharts, and now it’s the song of the week!
“Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy”
The second song is Skyfall from Adele.
This song is also rising in the hitcharts, and it’s just a classic Bond-song. It gives some people even the feeling of Shirley Bassey!
“We will stand tall or face it all together
Well, that were they for today.
