Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Tripping

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them very rarely that they can create a sense of nostalgic for you, the listener. So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


Tripping – Robbie Williams

Today we are going to look at a single by one of the UKs biggest pop stars that was released in the early noughties, compared to his other tracks it may be one that you may not remember straight away. Tripping was released by Robbie Williams on the 3rd October 2005, it was the lead single from his sixth studio album called Intensive Care that was also released in the same year. The single was written by Robbie Williams and Stephen Duffy and released under the record label of Chrysalis.

The single, like a lot of Robbie William singles did really well around the world and went into the top three in many countries charts including Germany (1), Italy(1), Netherlands (1), Norway (2), Sweden (2) and Czech Republic (3) just to name a small amount. In the United Kingdom it only went into the charts at number 19, however it did become certified silver.

Whilst this track may not be the biggest hit of Robbie’s in the UK, I always found it a good track, it is a song that was played a lot when it was released. I had the album that this song came off of and it was one of the best songs on the album, I liked the fact that it was so different to other songs that Robbie had released and that it had a really unique verse and chorus music structure.
