"Shine" was the first single to be released from Shannon Noll's second album, Lift. It was released in Australia on 26 September 2005, and debuted at number one on the Australian Singles Chart. "Shine" was the number one most added song to radio upon release, eventually going on to spend eleven consecutive weeks at number one on the Australian Airplay Chart - a record that still remains today.

The track was seen as a real departure from the country-tinged rock and balladry of Noll's debut album. Written by Canadian songwriter Andy Stochansky, who also recorded the song for inclusion on one of his albums, "Shine" not only ruled radio airwaves in 2005, but also found itself in the Top 10 most played songs of the following year also.

"Shine" was released as a single in the UK in April 2009, coinciding with Shannon's run in the stage version of Jeff Wayne's War Of The Worlds.
