Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow - Shame



This song is going to be released as a new track off of Robbie's new Greatest Hits album and is the kick off to the reformation of Take That. It's an apology set to music from both the lads as they discuss things that went wrong in their relationship. The song is all right. It's fun and very wistful. What absolutely sells this, however is the video. I waited with baited breath hoping and praying that Rob and Gaz would take the next step in their relationship. I knew Robbie had an amazing sense of humor but because my limited exposure to Gary and the rest of the boys from Take That, I wasn't familiar with his sensibilities. And this video does an amazing job at showcasing both of them in a strong comedic light. It's very Brokeback and it's supposed to be and they sell the hell out of it. Strong video for a song that is actually growing on me a lot. Check it out.
