FIRST MY THOUGHTS ON THE SONG.
Now I definitely liked this song when I first heard it. But I think what means the most for me is the chorus (which has a decidedly Howard flavor.. which I percieved even before vampyran pointed out to me over at the Take That community. It is a very GOOD song, very strong.. the lyrics are nothing short of what I expected from Take That as a group especially the words "Although no one understood, there was more of them than us learning how to dance the rain" which is just the most beautiful line that I've ever heard in a long time.
There are alot of people who are "THEY WERE BETTER AS A FOUR PIECE" and while yes, Robbie is my -least- favorite of the boys, I do not think the reunion is a bad thing at all. I highly doubt that Robbie will even enter into my favorite, he'll always be my fifth favorite BUT the song is just a thing of beauty and very symphonic in it's own way and with so many different melody threads being pulled here and there.
Did I mention the lyrics are gorgeous?
Next week they'll be debuting the music video everyone. ♥ (if you looked at the teaser trailer, you'll notice that Jason looks unbelievably sexy in it. I simply can't wait to see it.
