"Everything Changes" is a song by English boy band Take That. The song was the fifth single from the band's second studio album, Everything Changes (1993). It was written by Gary Barlow, Michael Ward, Eliot Kennedy and Cary Bayliss, and it was produced by Ward. The song features Robbie Williams on lead vocals.

The single was released on 28 March 1994, it was Take That's fourth consecutive single to go straight in at number one on the UK Singles Chart, where it remained for two weeks.[2] The song sold 367,000 copies in the UK, and has received a silver disc certification in the UK.

Critical reception[edit]

Tom Ewing from Freaky Trigger described the song as "breezy" and "disco-inspired". He also added that "this is the first number one with lead vocals from Robbie Williams."[3] Pop Rescue noted that Williams "opens the song with some sultry reassurance before it opens out into a bouncy little pop song." They added that "at times, this song feels somewhat Stock/Aitken/Waterman".[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song, liberally based on Kylie Minogue's video for her single "Give Me Just a Little More Time" (shot in the same location, 24 months earlier, in sepia tone), shows the band in a jazz cafe performing the song with people in the cafe joining in. The music video uses the 7" mix. The only difference between the 7" mix and the album version is that, there is a spoken part by Robbie Williams in the beginning of the album version that goes "Girl come over here let me hold you for a little while and remember I'll always love you". The spoken part is removed in the 7" mix. The 7" mix also appears on their Greatest Hits album.

Track listings[edit]

The B-side of the single features a studio version of a medley of songs by The Beatles, which the band performed live in concerts. The songs included, in order, are "I Want to Hold Your Hand", "A Hard Day's Night" and "She Loves You".
