apparently wrote 'Greatest Day' as the opening number for their next arena tour - and it's certainly got the right sort of sentiment. "Today this could be the greatest day of our lives," sings Gary Barlow as the piano pounds behind him. Meanwhile, Mark, Howard and (maybe) Jason chip in with some angelic harmonies on the chorus.
It's another likable effort from pop's national treasures, with a typically impressive vocal from Barlow and lovely warm production, but the chorus fails to match those of 'Patience' and 'Rule The Word' - or even, truth be told, the ones Barlow's written for Geraldine McQueen
and John Barrowman
recently. They're probably best off opening with 'Shine' instead.> Click here to watch the 'Greatest Day' video
