"Counting Down the Days" is the second and final single from Natalie Imbruglia's third album, Counting Down the Days. It is considerably less successful than "Shiver", but it still managed to keep the album in the charts for some time. It reached number twenty-three in the UK and number fifty-two in Australia. There are two versions of the song. The first one is the album version found on Counting Down the Days while the second one is the single version found on the CD single. The single version is essentially shorter than the album version as it does not have a prechorus.
