Robbie Williams : Supreme

It's slinky and a little bit seedy and doesn't 'rock out'. Which is a good thing...

Robbie Williams : Supreme

Coming across like an odd combination of Missy Elliot producing Marc Almond covering Gloria Gaynor - which, you'd like to think, could happen - 'Supreme' is Robbie Williams' bid for the Christmas Number One.

Mercifully not another one of those pseudo-introspective I'm so lucky I'm a star but I cry in the lonely car / I was sick and tired of everything when I called you last night from Glasgow / I do happy-go-lucky so well I'm even fooling myself-type wobblers, 'Supreme' is the best of what's left on 'Sing When You're Winning' - it's slinky and a little bit seedy and doesn't 'rock out'. Which is a good thing.

All this plus Kylie's not on it, which will spare us the sight of her and Bob grinding up against each other in a fairly unpleasant way. Hurrah!
