Let him entertain you
To celebrate the release of his latest album, we’ve chosen five of Robbie’s best solo tunes.
5. Feel (2002)
Written by longtime Robbie collaborator, Guy Chambers, Feel has become one of Robbie’s biggest international hits. The video stars American actress Daryl Hannah as Cowboy Williams’ love interest.
4. Let Me Entertain you (1998)
We all remember the time Robbie donned some Kiss-esque make up and joined the rock and roll circus. Released almost 20 years ago, Let Me Entertain You was the fifth single from Robbie’s debut studio album, Life thru a Lens and was directed by another longtime Robbie collaborator, Vaughan Arnell. Arnell also directed videos for Supreme, Feel, Rock DJ and Radio amongst others.
3. Millennium (1998)
Millennium, from 1998’s I’ve Been Expecting You borrows heavily from John Barry’s song You Only Live Twice, from the 1967 Bond film of the same name. The video follows suit and references numerous James Bond movies in Robbie’s classic tongue and cheek fashion. Think Tuxedo’s, Bond girls and expensive sports cars.
Probably his most successful single to date, Angels has become a bit of an anthem. A favourite at both weddings and funerals, this singalong classic usually concludes Robbie’s live shows.
1.Rock DJ (2000)
Sampling both Barry White and A Tribe Called Quest tracks, Rock DJ featured a controversial video whereby William’s stripped naked to impress a female DJ. In the end, he tears of his skin and muscles, leaving just a skeleton. Despite it’s content, the song reached number 1 in the UK and won Best Music Video and Best British Single at the Brit Awards in 2001.
