"Let Me Entertain You"

In which Robbie Williams borrows "Pinball Wizard" in its entirety and assumes the mantle of entertainer par excellence. Whatever else you may think of the guy, he does know how to put on a good show. OK, so there isn't an original thought in here, the lyrics are thrown together without any thought, but it just.....works. Part of it comes from his own energy, part of it is the colour-by-numbers rock that also doesn't break any new ground, but that's not the point! It's a crowd-pleasing singalong that doesn't let you down. OK, all together now with those lighters and scarves........

Don't forget the bejewelled codpiece. Essential for this number. And the KISS make-up.
