Robbie Williams Tapped To Sing Bond Tune

December 12, 2005 – Tony Christie tells The Sun he’s trying to get Robbie Williams to sing a track he wrote for the new James Bond film ‘Casino Royale’. “Ideally, of course, I’d like to sing it,” he said. “But Robbie’s voice would suit it down to the ground. Plus, he’s current and hip so it would be absolutely great if he did it. We tried to make it a typical Bond theme tune with a throbbing, dramatic bassline filling the background. I’m a huge fan of the old-school 007 songs… so I tried to give it that authentic sound. We are due to record it in February.”

Robbie Visits ‘RTL Boulevard’

December 9, 2005 – Robbie Williams made an appearance on ‘RTL Boulevard’ to promote his new album ‘Intensive Care’. Robbie talked about staying in Amsterdam, suffering in an empty bar, living in America and being anonymous there makes him feel like Batman, his thoughts on John Lennon’s murder and if he feels something like that could happen to him, his soccer skills and his admiration for Ruud van Nistelrooy — who he named his dog after, how his career peaked last week, tattoos — he dropped his trousers to show his first tattoo he got in Amsterdam at the age of 17, and more. Robbie also turned the tables on the hosts, and quizzed them. After hearing the male host was gay, they talked about the tabloids he constantly deals with and the “gay issue”, which got big attention this week after he won a lawsuit against The People.

The video clip at RTL.nl has since been removed.

    ses – ‘Legions’ of Fadge fans? More like 2 – and I’m pretty sure you and scorpion are one and the same. AIWFCIY is 100% NOT a cover (unlike frozen, of course). If you are so convinced that it is a cover, do tell me, who originally sung it, when, and where can I find it. I’m pretty sure it says written by M. Carey and W. Affaniseif in the Merry Christmas inlay. Next, Santa Baby was released in 1987, hardly when the Fadge was ‘starting out’ by any measure, and so what if it was for charity – that doesn’t excuse it being a flop – does it – the biggest selling singles ever were for charity (Band Aid; Candle In The Wind). Also – Mariah has sold over 4.5mill in the US of TEOM (so far – still top 10!), COAOH has sold 700,000 and will continue to fall – how is her domination not complete (and don’t even mention 50, TEOM will top him by the end of the year). TEOM has sold over 7 million worldwide so far (it was certified about a month ago, the story was on Pop Dirt, if you want to search the archives) and has sold at least 500,000 in the US alone since. ‘LAMBS DON’T DARE POST’? Surely we can post what the hell we want – it’s a free country – unless you live in North Korea, which would explain your blind following of a woman who hasn’t been a creative musical force for over 5 years. If you want proof on this feel free to listen to Goldfrapp’s ‘Supernature’ (or their other two albums) to hear where the Fadge got her latest sound from, and look at the cover to find her ‘latest’ ‘re-invention’ in front of your eyes a full 6 months prior to COAOH’S release. TEOM has been certified for sales of 600,000 in the UK (the only (non-Billboard) other chart I follow, thus would know about, apart from the odd glance at ARIA) and has spawned 4 top 20 singles (3 top 10 – one of which, WBT, spent 6 weeks in the top 10 and was 390 records away from #1) – how’s that for European success? So, DFAU is, ‘Simple…It’s the only single of TEOM that didn’t go top 10-clear?’ – that makes TEOM a success, right? I suppose at least you admit it! And NO, there ISN’T an OFFICIAL UK airplay chart – I should know – I live in the UK! Even if there was – don’t you hate airplay because it is ‘payola’? I live in the UK and can categorically deny that it is a, ‘PURE Madonna Country’. we, like the rest of the world, laugh at her hypocrisy and how she flakily ‘re-invents’ herself with others ideas, in doing so looking like a fool in a leotard @ 50! There are frequent newspaper articles deploring her to get out – we don’t want her! Finally – what does, ‘EVERY FACT AVAILABLE-SPARE YOURSELVES THE SHAME OF KNOWING IT
    ‘ mean – there is only one me so who is ‘YOURSELVES’, and why would I want to spare myself, ‘THE SHAME OF KNOWING IT’, surely YOU should be the shamed one, memorizing all your boring made up Fadge BS.

    COADF IS 2X BIGGER THAN TEOM IN THEIR FIRST MONTH…LIVE WITH IT’, ‘You are truly the silliest Lamb I have ever encountered…First of al me and ScorpionMan are different…Secondly Australia is not part of Europe….Thirdly coming from UK yourself you should know the fact from your own country and yes there is airplay charts in UK. MADONNA COMPLETELY DOMINATES THE REST OF THE WORLD(2/3 OF GLOBAL SALES) WHILE MARIAH INCOMPLETELY DOMIANTES THE U.S.(1/3 OF GLOBAL SALES) TO SUM IT UP=2/3 IS GREATER THAN 1/3 …LEARN MATHEMATICS got_soul CAUSE IT SEEMS YOU don’t_got_brain
