The Road to Mandalay (3:53)

Cover of Sing When You're Winning

From Sing When You're Winning and 19 other releases

Eternity/ The Road To Mandalay is the fifth single from Robbie Williams’ 2000 Sing When You’re Winning album, released in July 2001. Brian May plays guitar on “Eternity”. “Eternity” does not appear in the album but it was later included on Williams’ Greatest Hits album.

The video for The Road To Mandalay shows Robbie and four friends, driving a Jensen FF (a rare MKIII car, number 130/317, of which only 15 were built from a total of 320 FF’s) & Ford Transit van, alternatively goofing around and scoping out a money transport van and the people who transport the money. When the robbery goes down, Robbie and his friends dress with masks covering their faces and run into the transport van with a truck. Holding up a sign demanding the money (and showing the dog of one of the drivers, thus showing they know where to find the driver’s family), they quickly move the money to another van, then celebrate while driving off. Robbie invites his friends to his new plush house, celebrating with plenty of champagne and cake. The video ends with the van nearly running over an elderly lady, and with Robbie waking up startled next to his girlfriend.

The single became Williams’ fourth number-one hit in the United Kingdom and his second in New Zealand, it made its mark around Europe charting inside the top ten in most countries, the single went on to sell 70,186 in its first week in the United Kingdom, and overall sales exceeded the 340,000 copies being certified Silver by the BPI.
