Songs I Love That You Might Hate – Millennium by Robbie Williams

This have been a little too serious around the JUF camp lately, so I thought I would lighten things up a bit and share some songs I love that you probably don’t care for at all.  I could be wrong, because I really think these songs are awesome, but I fear most of you will lose what little respect you have for me!

So let’s kick things off with Millennium by Robbie Williams.

I’m a complete sucker for a song with a good groove and strings.  Millennium hits on both those marks, so I love it.

Robbie originally got his start in the British pop-band Take That in the early 90’s and then moved on to a solo career around 1996.  Millennium was the first single off The Ego Has Landed, Robbie’s first American solo album.  This song is a primary example of why Europeans generally have a better taste in music than Americans.  Millennium reached number 1 on the pop charts in Britain, but only reached number 72 in the U.S.

How long was Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas at number 1? Point and case.

    Agreed. The strings are sampled from the Bond theme “You Only Live Twice”. Hell, the video is Robbie doing his James Bond impression.

    Do i see a JUF cover in the future?
