Swinging With Robbie Williams

In response to the bad cover of Robbie William's song Angel by Jessica Simpson recently, I wanna share with you some of my favourite swings by Robbie - who happens to be one of my favourite singers. One of the best thing he has done to the music industry was to leave the boyband Take That.

Robert Peter Maximilian Williams (born 13 February 1974) is a Grammy Award-nominated, 15-time BRIT Award-winning English singer-songwriter. His career started as a member of the pop band Take That in 1990. He left Take That in 1995 to begin his solo career, after selling 25 million records with the group.

His album sales stand at over 55 million, with singles sales over 17 million. Williams entered the The Guinness Book of World Records when in just one day he sold more than 1.6 million tickets for his 2006 world tour. He has been the recipient of many awards, including fifteen BRIT and six ECHO awards. In 2004, he was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame, after being voted as the Greatest artist of the 1990s.

One may remember him, amongst others, for the prolific personal lifestyle which he leads - but what amazes me most is the wide array of varieties of music genres he can cover - and covered them well. Apart from his pop music, my favourite album was his "Swing When You're Winning" - cover songs the swing genre. To me, that is probably one of his best albums - all the songs in there are marvelous, and some will be featured here. Enjoy... If you have not heard him much doing swings, you may not believe that this is Robbie :)
