Forgotten Songs! – This Week -Eternity

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.

Eternity – Robbie Williams

Today we look at a pop song by the singer Robbie Williams that you may of not remembered was a track that he released in the early noughties. Today we are taking a look at the song Eternity.

The single Eternity was released on the 9th July 2001 as a double A side with the track The Road To Mandalay. The track was written by Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers. Even though there was an album around called Sing When Your Winning, the single was only released on the Greatest Hits album in 2004.The lyrics of the song were apparently dedicated to his close friendship with Geri Halliwell. Also there is an article that says that Brian May performed on the track.

The song like most Robbie Williams tracks, did really well in the charts and it went to certified Gold in the United Kingdom and sold over 418,000 units. In other countries, the song went into the top 10 in Austria (9), Belgium (6), Denmark (3), Ireland (2), Italy (4) and it went straight to number 1 in the United Kingdom.

I always found the song completely different to his other style of pop tracks by the musician and I was never one to really like it. As I have got older, I can appreciate it but still a not a fan.
