A much less successful UK cover version recorded by Ronnie Hilton reached number 22 on the UK Singles Chart.
Synthpop duo Erasure recorded the song for their 1997 album Cowboy.
This song was used in the television commercial for Quality Street in the 1980s and continues to be used each year for the brand's Christmas advertisements.
1995Take That – Back For Good
WRITTEN by Gary Barlow, who also sang the lead vocal on the track, this was Take That’s sixth UK chart-topper, and their only US top 10 hit.
It was initially unveiled at the 1995 Brit Awards, and such was the demand for the single that the release date was brought forward and the song made available to the media an unprecedented six weeks before release.
It was one of the fastest selling singles of the year, selling almost as many as the rest of the top 10 that week added together. It remained at number one for four weeks.
The music video was shot in black and white and shows the band walking and dancing in the rain as well as performing the song in a shelter.
The video has often been an influence on the band’s live shows as they regularly make use of artificial rain when performing the song.
Back For Good was released on Nobody Else, Take That's last studio album before they disbanded in 1996.
The album spawned two other number one singles: Sure and Never Forget.
The single release of Never Forget in July 1995 marked the departure of Robbie Williams.
The album reached number one in the UK, German, Dutch, Irish, Belgian, Austrian, Italian and Swiss charts.
