About songs in his own words

1. LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU (LIVE FROM KNEBWORTH)

“I was beyond terrified. There was a sea of 135,000 people in front of me and I felt like anything but a rock god. They hadn’t paid to see someone petrified from Stoke-on-Trent, so I had to override my feelings for the sake of entertainment.”

2. FEEL (LIVE FROM KNEBWORTH)

“By this point in the show, I had dusted away the self-doubt and just let the song do the talking.”

3. COME UNDONE

“My favourite ‘me’ song.”

4. VIVA LIFE ON MARS

“The first song written for the Rudebox album, dictating where the album was to go.”

5. THE TROUBLE WITH ME

“This is me trying to be from ‘art school’.”

6. MAN MACHINE

“A song about one drink before blackout.”

7. ME AND MY MONKEY

“I had a conversation with a girl in a pool in Singapore. She said, ‘How do you write a song?’ I said, ‘You write about anything that comes to mind: give me two things and I will write a song for you this afternoon.’ She said, ‘Monkeys and rollerblades’.”

8. NO REGRETS (LIVE FROM SLANE CASTLE)

“A bitter, younger me being a bit of a drama queen about the band I used to be in.”

9. PHOENIX FROM THE FLAMES

“It is my crew’s favourite Robbie song, I think.”

10. NAN’S SONG

“A song dedicated to someone made of love, and the reason I have a B on my neck – Bertha Talbot.”

11. ROCK DJ (LIVE FROM MUNGERSDORFER STADION, KOLN)

“I don’t want to Rock DJ – still don’t!”

12. ANGELS (LIVE)

“It’s a toss-up between the Irish and the Scots for the most mental audiences I have performed in front of. I haven’t been fortunate enough to write another song as good as this – maybe one day.”
