ong Information

"Sure" was the first release from Take That's third album Nobody Else. Released on October 4 1994, it was a departure from their previous singles, having a more American, R&B sound compared to their previous, more pop/dance orientated songs. It was written by Take That's lead singer Gary Barlow with contributions from fellow band members Robbie Williams and Mark Owen. [1000 UK Number One Singles by Jon Kutner & Spencer Leigh, page 400]
