Millennium by Robbie Williams was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 19, 1998 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song prepares for the Millennium (year 2000), which was two years away at that time. It was brilliant forethought to create an anthem surrounding the event, and the big chorus with "stars directing our fate" made it the most popular song about the new millennium. The music for this song is based on Nancy Sinatra's "You Only Live Twice" from the James Bond film of the same name. The actual sample of the song wasn't used because it was a lot cheaper to recreate it in the studio than to clear it, so an orchestra was brought in to record it. The music video used a James Bond theme to go along with the musical idea. Williams does some very rough recreations of famous scenes from various Bond movies in the clip.
